DCIO required the CPO to disclose the manner of organization of the pool and the fact that series other than the offered series existed and that information regarding other series was available upon request. Additionally, DCIO required the CPO to make certain representations to NFA prior to filing such disclosure document and to ensure that both parts of the disclosure document be distributed to prospective participants together. DCIO further required the CPO to comply with the prescribed risk disclosure statement set forth in Regulation 4.24 and to present the required information in the forepart of the first part of the document, but permitted customization.
