office: 1166 avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036. Phone: 212.345.5000. MMCSC, Oliver Wyman, and Marsh Inc. are affiliated entities


This material has been prepared for informational purposes only. It is not an offer to buy or sell any security or commodity or other financial
instrument or to participate in any trading strategy. The implementation of or investment in the Alternative Security Program (“ASP”) involves a
high degree of risk and should be considered only by institutional investors who can bear the economic risks of replacing collateral with a
portfolio based approach utilizing synthetic collateralized debt obligations and credit default swaps (“credit derivatives”). Certain inherent risks of
credit derivatives include, but are not limited to the following: counterparty default risk; correlation may exist between reference entities and
counterparties not assumed in risk models; reference entities may exhibit greater correlation than assumed in risk models; estimated recovery
rates may greatly differ from actual recovery rates; reference entities may default on their worker’s compensation payments without triggering an
ISDA default; and depending on future market conditions, credit protection may not be available at renewal of the ASP or may only be available
at excessive cost. ASP sponsors/Investors should not rely on rating agency ratings and should conduct their own analysis or due diligence –
identical ratings for different financial products do not guarantee identical risk characteristics since default rates may vastly differ.

Certain of the information contained herein concerning credit ratings and default rates is based upon or derived from information provided by
third-parties and other industry sources as indicated herein. Results from simulations are for illustrative purposes only and certain assumptions
have been made regarding simulations because some models are proprietary to their respective owners and cannot be replicated. No
representation or warranty, express or implied, is made by MMCSC as to the accuracy or completeness of the information set forth herein, and
nothing contained in this presentation is, or shall be relied upon as, a promise or representation, whether as to the past or the future. MMCSC
has not independently verified any such information and assumes no responsibility for its accuracy or completeness. In addition, this
presentation includes certain estimates and assumptions made by MMCSC which may or may not prove accurate. Certain assumptions have
been made for modeling purposes only to simplify the presentation and/or calculation and are for illustrative purpose only; this does not reflect
the performance of any specific scenario. Simulated performance is hypothetical and may not take into account material economic and market
factors. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that estimated returns will be realized or that actual returns or performance results will not
materially differ from those estimated herein. Therefore, recipients should not place undue reliance on these results. Past performance is not
indicative of future results, which may vary.

No person has been authorized to make any representation or give any information with respect to the ASP, other than the information contained
herein. Prospective institutional investors should not rely on any information other than that contained in this presentation or any supplement to
this presentation.

Neither MMCSC nor any of its registered representatives, is making any representation regarding the legality of an investment herein by
institutional investors. Prospective institutional investors are not to construe the contents of this presentation as legal, tax or business advice.
Each institutional investor should consult with its own advisors as to legal, tax business, financial, and related aspects of investing in the ASP.
