PART I
Item 1.  BUSINESS
(a) General Development of Business.  Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P. (formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P.) (“Profile MV” or the “Partnership”), was formed on February 22, 2007, under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act, as a multi-advisor commodity pool created to profit from the speculative trading of domestic and foreign futures contracts, forward contracts, foreign exchange commitments, options on physical commodities and futures contracts, spot (cash) commodities and currencies, exchange of futures contracts for physicals transactions and futures contracts transactions, and any rights pertaining thereto (collectively, “Futures Interests”) through the Partnership’s investments in its affiliated trading companies (each a “Trading Company”, or collectively the “Trading Companies”).  The Partnership is one of the partnerships in the Managed Futures Multi-Strategy Profile Series, comprised of Profile MV, Managed Futures Profile LV, L.P., and Managed Futures Profile HV, L.P. (collectively, the “Profile Series”).

The Partnership allocates substantially all of its assets to multiple affiliated Trading Companies, each of which allocates substantially all of its assets to the trading program of an unaffiliated commodity trading advisor (each a “Trading Advisor”, or collectively the “Trading Advisors”) registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), which makes investment decisions for each respective Trading Company.  The Trading Companies are each Delaware limited liability companies operated by Demeter Management LLC (“Demeter”).

The Partnership commenced trading operations on August 1, 2007, in accordance with the terms of its Limited Partnership Agreement.

The primary commodity broker for each Trading Company is Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated (“MS&Co.”), except that Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Kaiser I, LLC (“Kaiser I, LLC”), uses Newedge USA, LLC (formerly, Newedge Financial Inc.) (“Newedge”) as its primary clearing commodity broker.  Morgan Stanley & Co. International plc (“MSIP”) acts as each Trading Company’s commodity broker to the extent it trades on the London Metal Exchange (except for Kaiser I, LLC, which uses Newedge) (collectively, MS&Co., MSIP, and Newedge are referred to as the “Commodity Brokers”).  Each Trading Company’s over-the-counter foreign exchange spot, options, and forward contract counterparties are either MS&Co. and/or Morgan Stanley Capital Group Inc. (“MSCG”) to the extent a Trading Company trades options on over-the-counter foreign currency forward contracts (except that Newedge serves in such capacity with respect to Kaiser I, LLC).

The financial statements of the Partnership have been prepared using the “Fund of Funds” approach and accordingly all revenue and expense information from the Trading Companies is reflected as a net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments on the Statements of Operations.  The Partnership maintains sufficient cash balances on hand to satisfy ongoing operating expenses for the Partnership.  As of December 31, 2009 and 2008, the Partnership’s cash balances were zero.

The Trading Companies and their Trading Advisors for the Partnership at December 31, 2009, are as follows:
 
Trading Company
 
Trading Advisor
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Aspect I, LLC (“Aspect I, LLC”)
Aspect Capital Limited
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Augustus I, LLC (“Augustus I, LLC”)
Augustus Asset Managers Limited (“Augustus”)
 
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Chesapeake Diversified I, LLC (“Chesapeake I, LLC”)
 
Chesapeake Capital Corporation
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney GLC I, LLC  (“GLC I, LLC”)
GLC, Ltd. (“GLC”)
Kaiser I, LLC
Kaiser Trading Group Pty Ltd.
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney TT II, LLC (“TT II, LLC”)
Transtrend B.V.
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney WNT I, LLC (“WNT I, LLC”)
Winton Capital Management Limited
 - 2 -

 
 

 

Demeter, the general partner of the Partnership and the trading manager of each Trading Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Holdings LLC (“MSSB”).  MSSB is majority-owned indirectly by Morgan Stanley and minority-owned indirectly by Citigroup Inc. (“Citigroup”).  MS&Co., MSIP, and MSCG are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Morgan Stanley.

Demeter may reallocate the Partnership’s assets to different Trading Companies in its sole discretion.

Units of limited partnership interest (“Units”) of the Partnership are being offered in four share classes in a private placement pursuant to Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  Depending on the aggregate amount invested in the Partnership, limited partners receive either class A, B, C or D Units in the Partnership (each a “Class” and collectively the “Classes”).  As of December 31, 2009 and 2008, there were no Class D Units outstanding in the Partnership.  Certain limited partners who are not subject to the ongoing placement agent fee are deemed to hold Class Z Units. Demeter receives Class Z Units with respect to its investment in the Partnership.

Demeter is not required to maintain any investment in the Partnership, and may withdraw any portion of its interest in the Partnership at any time, as permitted by the Limited Partnership Agreement.  In addition, Class Z shares are only being offered to certain individuals affiliated with Morgan Stanley at Demeter’s sole discretion.  Class Z Unit holders are not subject to paying the placement agent fee.

On April 30, 2009, Demeter Management Corporation was converted from Delaware corporation to a Delaware limited liability company and changed its name to Demeter Management LLC.

Demeter does not believe that the change in its ownership had a material impact on the Partnership’s limited partners.  At all times Demeter served as the general partner of the Partnership and the trading manager of each Trading Company and it continues to do so.  The change in ownership occurred pursuant to the transaction in which Morgan Stanley and Citigroup agreed to combine the Global Wealth Management Group of Morgan Stanley and the Smith Barney division of Citigroup Global Markets Inc. into a new joint venture.  The transaction closed on June 1, 2009.

Prior to June 1, 2009, Demeter was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Morgan Stanley.

Effective upon the close of business on September 30, 2009, Bridgewater Associates, Inc. was terminated as a Trading Advisor to the Partnership, and ceased its activities via investment in Morgan Stanley Strategic Alternatives, L.L.C. (“Strategic Alternatives, L.L.C.”).

Effective as of the start of business on October 1, 2009, Augustus was added as a Trading Advisor to the Partnership.  Effective October 1, 2009, Augustus began trading the Partnership’s assets allocated to Augustus I, LLC.

Effective as of the start of business on October 1, 2009, GLC was added as a Trading Advisor to the Partnership.  Effective October 1, 2009, GLC began trading the Partnership’s assets allocated to GLC I, LLC.

Effective October 1, 2009, the name of the Partnership was changed from Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P. to Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P.  The name change does not have any impact on the operation of the Partnership or its limited partners.

Effective October 1, 2009, Demeter changed the name of Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Aspect I, LLC to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Aspect I, LLC.

Effective October 1, 2009, Demeter changed the name of Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Chesapeake I, LLC to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Chesapeake Diversified I, LLC.

Effective October 1, 2009, Demeter changed the name of Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Kaiser I, LLC to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Kaiser I, LLC.

Effective October 1, 2009, Demeter changed the name of Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Transtrend II, LLC to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney TT II, LLC.

Effective October 1, 2009, Demeter changed the name of Morgan Stanley Managed Futures WCM I, LLC to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney WNT I, LLC.

The Partnership began the year at a net asset value per Unit of $1,177.84, $1,186.13, $1,194.48, and $1,211.35 and returned (9.05)%, (8.59)%, (8.13)%, and (7.20)% to $1,071.20, $1,084.19, $1,097.34 and $1,124.10 for Class A, Class B, Class C, and Class Z, respectively, on December 31, 2009.

(b)  Financial Information about Segments.  The Partnership’s business consists of only one segment, which is the speculative trading of Futures Interest as discussed in Item 1(a).  The Partnership does not engage in the sale of goods or services.

(c)  Narrative Description of Business.  See Item 1(a) above for a complete description of the Partnership’s business.  The information requested in Section 101(c)(i) through (xiii) of Regulation    S-K are not applicable to the Partnership.  Additionally, the Partnership does not have any employees.  The directors and officers of the General Partner are listed in Part III Item 10. “Directors, Executive Officers and Corporate Governance”.

(d)  Financial Information about Geographic Areas.
Not applicable.

(e)  Available Information.  Effective with the Form 10 filed on October 2, 2008, the Partnership files an annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, current reports on Form 8-K, and all amendments to these reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  You may read and copy any document filed by the Partnership at the SEC’s Public Reference Room at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C.  20549. Please call the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330 for information on the Public Reference Room.  The Partnership does not maintain an internet website, however, the Partnership’s SEC filings are available to the public from the EDGAR database on the SEC’s website at “http://www.sec.gov”.  The Partnership’s CIK number is 0001428042.

Item 1A.  RISK FACTORS
This section includes some of the principal risks that investors will face with an investment in the Partnership.   All trading activities take place at the Trading Company level, but since the Partnership invests substantially all of its assets in multiple Trading Companies, each of the risks applicable to the Trading Companies flow through to the Partnership.
 
THE UNITS IN THE PARTNERSHIP ARE SPECULATIVE AND INVOLVE A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK.  THEY ARE SUITABLE ONLY FOR PERSONS WHO CAN AFFORD TO LOSE THEIR ENTIRE INVESTMENT.
 

 
Risks Relating to the Partnership and the Offering of Units
 
Limited Operating History.  The Partnership and Trading Companies each have a limited operating history.  The past performance of the Partnership may not be indicative of the future performance of the Partnership.
 

 
You Should Not Rely on Past Performance of Demeter or the Trading Advisors in Deciding to Purchase Units.   The past investment performance of other entities managed by Demeter and the Trading Advisors is not necessarily indicative of the Partnership’s or a Trading Company’s future results.  No assurance can be given that Demeter will succeed in meeting the investment objectives of the Partnership.  You may lose all or substantially all of your investment in the Partnership.
 

 

 
- 7 -
 

 
 

 

Demeter believes that past performance of the Trading Advisors may be of interest to prospective investors, but encourages you to look at such information as an example of the respective objectives of the Trading Manager and each Trading Advisor rather than as any indication that the Partnership’s objectives will, in fact, be achieved.
 

 
The Trading Companies and Partnership Incur Substantial Charges.  Each Trading Company must pay substantial charges, and must generate profits and interest income which exceed its fixed costs in order to avoid depletion of its assets.  Each Trading Company is required to pay brokerage commissions to its Commodity Brokers and monthly management fees to the Trading Advisors regardless of its performance.  In addition, each Trading Company pays its Trading Advisor an incentive fee of 20% of new trading profits.  Each Trading Company pays a fee equal to 1/12 of 0.35% (a 0.35% annual rate) of the beginning of the month net assets to cover its administrative, operating, offering and organizational expenses.  The limited partners in the Partnership will be indirectly responsible for the expenses paid by the Trading Companies in which the Partnership invests.
 

 
The Partnership pays Demeter’s Fee, and pays the ongoing compensation to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC (the “Placement Agent”).  In addition, the Partnership pays a fee equal to 1/12 of 0.40% (a 0.40% annual rate) of the beginning of the month net asset value to cover its administrative, operating, offering and organizational expenses.
 

 

 
- 8 -
 

 
 

 

Incentive Fees may be Paid by a Trading Company Even Though the Trading Company Sustains Trading Losses.  Each Trading Company pays its Trading Advisor an incentive fee based upon the new trading profits it generates for each account in the Trading Company.  These new trading profits include unrealized appreciation on open positions.  Accordingly, it is possible that a Trading Company will pay an incentive fee on new trading profits that do not become realized.  Also, each Trading Advisor will retain all incentive fees paid to it, even if it incurs a subsequent loss after payment of an incentive fee.  Due to the fact that incentive fees are paid quarterly, it is possible that an incentive fee may be paid to a Trading Advisor during a year in which the assets allocated to the Trading Advisor suffer a loss for the year.  Because each Trading Advisor receives an incentive fee based on the new trading profits earned by the Trading Advisor, the Trading Advisors may have an incentive to make investments that are riskier than would be the case in the absence of such an incentive fee being paid to the Trading Advisors based on new trading profits.  In addition, as incentive fees are calculated on a Trading-Company-by-Trading-Company basis, it is possible that one or more Trading Advisors could receive incentive fees during periods when the Partnership has a negative return as a whole.
 

 
Restricted Investment Liquidity in the Units.  There is no secondary market for the Units, and limited partners may not redeem their Units other than as of the last day of each month.  Limited partners right to receive payment for a redemption of some or all of their Units is dependent upon (a) the Partnership having sufficient assets to pay its liabilities on the redemption date, and (b) Demeter’s receipt of your request for redemption in the form provided by Demeter no later than
 

 
- 9 -
 

 
 

 

3:00 p.m., New York City time, on the last business day of the month.  Demeter will not permit a transfer, sale, pledge or assignment of Units unless it is satisfied that the transfer, sale, pledge or assignment would not be in violation of Delaware law or applicable federal, state, or foreign securities laws and notwithstanding any transfer, sale, pledge or assignment, the Partnership will continue to be classified as a partnership rather than as an association taxable as a corporation under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”).  No transfer, sale, pledge or assignment of Units will be effective or recognized by the Partnership if the transfer, sale, pledge or assignment would result in the termination of the Partnership for federal income tax purposes.  Any attempt to transfer, sell, pledge or assign Units in violation of the Limited Partnership Agreement will be ineffective.
 
General Partner Redemptions. Demeter has a right to redeem all or part of its investment in the Partnership at any time without notice to the limited partners. For any such redemption, Demeter will redeem its Units at the end of the month in the same manner as any limited partner would follow to redeem Units.  Additionally, Demeter has the right to redeem Units it holds in the event redemptions for limited partners are suspended.
 
The Partnership’s Structure Has Conflicts of Interest.
 
·  
Demeter, the Placement Agent, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, MS&Co., MSCG and MSIP are affiliates.  As a result, the fees and other compensation received by these parties and other terms relating to the operation of the Partnership and the sale of Units have not been negotiated independently.

 
- 10 -

 
 

 


·  
“Bid-ask” spreads are incorporated in the price of all over-the-counter foreign exchange trades executed by the Trading Companies, and MS&Co. and MSCG will benefit from such spreads as the Trading Advisors execute a substantial portion of over-the-counter foreign exchange trades with MS&Co. and MSCG.
·  
Employees of the Placement Agent receive a portion of the ongoing placement agent fee paid by the Partnership.  Therefore, these employees have a conflict of interest in making recommendations regarding the purchase or redemption of Units.
·  
The Trading Advisors, MS&Co., MSCG, MSIP and Demeter and their affiliates may trade futures, forwards and options for their own accounts, and thereby compete with the Trading Companies for positions.  Also, the other commodity pools managed by Demeter and the Trading Advisors may compete with the Trading Companies for futures, forwards, and options positions. These conflicts can result in less favorable prices on the Partnership’s transactions.

 
An Investment in Units may not Diversify an Overall Portfolio.  Because futures, forwards and options have historically performed independently of traditional investments in equities and bonds, Demeter believes that managed futures funds like the Partnership can diversify a traditional portfolio of equities and bonds.  However, Demeter cannot assure you that the Partnership will perform with a significant degree of non- or low-correlation to limited partners’ other investments in the future.  You may lose your entire investment in the Partnership.
 

 
- 11 -
 

 
 

 

The Partnership and the Trading Companies are not Registered Investment Companies.  The Partnership and Trading Companies are not required to register, and are not registered, as investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”).  Accordingly, investors will not have the protections afforded by the Investment Company Act (which, among other matters, requires investment companies to have a majority of disinterested directors and regulates the relationship between the advisor and the investment company).
 
The Federal Reserve Board's Regulation of Morgan Stanley Could Affect the Activities of the Partnership and the Trading Companies.  On September 21, 2008, Morgan Stanley's application to become a bank holding company was approved by the U.S. Federal Reserve Board of Governors and Morgan Stanley has elected to be deemed a financial holding company under the Bank Holding Company Act.

As a financial holding company (“FHC”) subject to the Bank Holding Company Act, Morgan Stanley and its subsidiaries, including the Partnership and the Trading Companies, are subject to regulation, supervision and examination by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (“Federal Reserve”).  A significant focus of this regulatory framework is the operation of Morgan Stanley and its subsidiaries in a safe and sound manner, with sufficient capital, earnings and liquidity that Morgan Stanley may serve as a source of financial and managerial strength to Morgan Stanley Bank, N.A., Morgan Stanley Trust, FSB, and Morgan Stanley Bank, National Association ("the Banks").  These Banks must remain well capitalized and well managed if Morgan Stanley is to maintain its FHC status and continue to engage in the widest range of permissible financial

- 12 -

 
 

 

activities.  In addition, the general exercise by the Federal Reserve of its regulatory, supervisory and enforcement authority with respect to Morgan Stanley could result in changes to Morgan Stanley's business practices or the scope of its current lines of business, including certain limited divestitures.  Although such changes could have an impact on and consequences for Morgan Stanley, Demeter, the Partnership and the Trading Companies, any limited divestiture should not involve Demeter, the Partnership or the Trading companies.
 
The Units are not being offered by the Banks, and as such: are not FDIC insured, (2) are not deposits or other obligations of the Banks, (3) are not guaranteed by the Banks, and (4) involve investment risks, including possible loss of principal.
 
Assets Held in Accounts at U.S. Banks May Not Be Fully Insured.  The assets of each Trading Company that are deposited with Commodity Brokers or their affiliates may be placed in deposit accounts at U.S. banks.  The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) currently insures deposit accounts up to $250,000 for each accountholder, and, if the funds in a single account can be traced back to individual beneficiaries, then each beneficiary is entitled to $250,000 in coverage.  The amount of the coverage currently is expected to decrease to $100,000 as of January 1, 2013.  The FDIC currently also has in place a program for unlimited deposit insurance coverage of certain non-interest bearing deposit accounts, if the U.S. bank holding such accounts has elected to participate in the program.  This program is scheduled to end on June 30, 2010.  Uninsured depositors also may receive funds in the event of a receivership of the bank holding the deposit accounts, but uninsured depositors have a lower priority in respect of payment than insured
 

 
- 13 -
 

 
 

 

depositors or certain other creditors, and frequently there are insufficient funds in a receivership estate to pay off uninsured depositors fully.  If the FDIC were to become receiver of a U.S. bank holding deposit accounts that were established by a Commodity Broker or one of its affiliates, then it is uncertain whether the Commodity Broker, the affiliate involved, the Trading Company, the Partnership, or the investor would be able to reclaim cash in the deposit accounts in the full amount.
 
THE UNITS ARE SPECULATIVE AND INVOLVE A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK.  THEY ARE SUITABLE ONLY FOR PERSONS WHO CAN AFFORD TO LOSE THEIR ENTIRE INVESTMENT.
 
Risks Relating to Futures Interests Trading and the Futures Interests Markets
 
Futures Interests Trading is Speculative and Volatile.  The rapid fluctuations in the market prices of futures, forwards, and options make an investment in the Partnership volatile.  Volatility is caused by, among other things, changes in supply and demand relationships; weather; agricultural, trade, fiscal, monetary and exchange control programs; domestic and foreign political and economic events and policies; and changes in interest rates.  If a Trading Advisor incorrectly predicts the direction of prices in futures, forwards, and options, large losses may occur.  The Partnership’s performance will be volatile on a monthly and an annual basis.  The Partnership could lose all or substantially all of its assets.  The multi-advisor feature of the Partnership, through the Trading Companies, may reduce the return volatility relative to the performance of single-advisor investment funds.
 

 
- 14 -
 

 
 

 

The Trading Companies’ Futures Interests Trading is Highly Leveraged.  The Trading Advisors for the Partnership use substantial leverage. Trading futures, forwards, and options involves substantial leverage, which could result in immediate and substantial losses.  Due to the low margin deposits normally required in trading futures, forwards, and options (typically between 2% and 15% of the value of the contract purchased or sold), an extremely high degree of leverage is typical of a futures interests trading account.  As a result, a relatively small price movement in futures, forwards, and options may result in immediate and substantial losses to the investor.  For example, if 10% of the face value of a contract is deposited as margin for that contract, a 10% decrease in the value of the contract would cause a total loss of the margin deposit.  A decrease of more than 10% in the value of the contract would cause a loss greater than the amount of the margin deposit.
 

 
The leverage employed by each Trading Advisor in its trading can vary substantially from month to month.  This leverage, expressed as the underlying value of each Trading Company’s positions compared to the average net assets of such Trading Company, is anticipated to range from two times the Trading Company’s net assets to ten times the Trading Company’s net assets.  Under certain conditions, however, a Trading Company’s leverage could exceed (or be less than) such range.
 

 
Options Trading can be More Volatile than Futures Trading.  A Trading Company may trade options on futures.  Although successful options trading requires many of the same skills as successful futures trading, the risks are different.  Successful options trading requires a trader to
 

 
- 15 -
 

 
 

 

assess accurately near-term market volatility because that volatility is immediately reflected in the price of outstanding options.  Correct assessment of market volatility can therefore be of much greater significance in trading options than it is in many long-term futures strategies where volatility does not have as great an effect on the price of a futures contract.
 

 
Market Illiquidity May Cause Less Favorable Trade Prices.  Although the Trading Advisors for each Trading Company generally will purchase and sell actively traded contracts where last trade price information and quoted prices are readily available, the prices at which a sale or purchase occur may differ from the prices expected because there may be a delay between receiving a quote and executing a trade, particularly in circumstances where a market has limited trading volume and prices are often quoted for relatively limited quantities.  In addition, most U.S. futures exchanges have established “daily price fluctuation limits” which preclude the execution of trades at prices outside of the limit, and, from time to time, the CFTC or the exchanges may suspend trading in market disruption circumstances.  In these cases it is possible that a Trading Company could be required to maintain a losing position that it otherwise would execute and incur significant losses or be unable to establish a position and miss a profit opportunity.
 

 
Trading on Foreign Exchanges Presents Greater Risks to the Trading Companies than Trading on U.S. Exchanges.  Each Trading Company trades on exchanges located outside the United States. Trading on U.S. exchanges is subject to CFTC regulation and oversight, including, for example, minimum capital requirements for commodity brokers, segregation of customer funds, regulation of trading practices on the exchanges, prohibitions against trading ahead of customer
 

 
- 16 -
 

 
 

 

orders, prohibitions against filling orders off exchanges, prescribed risk disclosure statements, testing and licensing of industry sales personnel and other industry professionals, and recordkeeping requirements.  Trading on foreign exchanges is not regulated by the CFTC or any other U.S. governmental agency or instrumentality and may be subject to regulations that are different from those to which U.S. exchange trading is subject, provide less protection to investors than trading on U.S. exchanges, and may be less vigorously enforced than regulations in the U.S.
 

 
The percentage of each Trading Company’s positions which are traded on foreign exchanges can vary significantly from month to month.  The average percentage of each Trading Company’s positions which are expected to be traded on foreign exchanges in any given month is anticipated to range from 30% to 65% of such Trading Company’s positions, but could be greater or less than such expected range during any time period.
 

 
Positions on foreign exchanges also are subject to the risk of, among other things, exchange controls, expropriation, excessive taxation or government disruptions.
 

 
A Trading Company may incur losses when determining the value of its foreign positions in U.S. dollars because of fluctuations in exchange rates.
 

 
The Unregulated Nature of the Over-The-Counter Markets Creates Counterparty Risks that Do Not Exist in Futures Trading on Exchanges.  Unlike futures contracts, over-the-counter

“spot” and forward contracts are entered into between private parties off an exchange and are not regulated by the CFTC or by any other U.S. or foreign governmental agency.  Due to the fact that such contracts are not traded on an exchange, the performance of those contracts is not guaranteed by an exchange or its clearinghouse and a Trading Company is at risk with respect to the ability of the counterparty to perform on the contract, including the creditworthiness of the counterparty.  Trading in the over-the-counter foreign exchange markets is not regulated; therefore, there are no specific standards or regulatory supervision of trade pricing and other trading activities that occur in those markets.  The Trading Companies trade such contracts with MS & Co., MSCG and Newedge, and are at risk with respect to the creditworthiness and trading practices of each of MS&Co., MSCG and Newedge as the counterparty to the contracts.
 

 
The percentage of each Trading Company’s positions that are expected to constitute forward currency contracts can vary substantially from month to month.
 

 
The Trading Companies are Subject to Speculative Position Limits.  The CFTC and U.S. futures exchanges have established speculative position limits (referred to as “position limits”) on the maximum position in certain Futures Interests contracts that may be held or controlled by any one person or group.  Therefore, a Trading Advisor may have to reduce the size of its position in one or more futures contracts in order to avoid exceeding such position limits, which could adversely affect the profitability of a Trading Company.  The CFTC or the futures exchange may
 

 
- 18 -
 

 
 

 

amend or adjust these position limits or the interpretation of how such limits are applied, adversely affecting the profitability of a Trading Company.
 

 
The Trading Companies have Credit Risk to the Commodity Brokers.  Each Trading Company has credit risk because the Commodity Brokers act as the futures commission merchants for futures transactions or the counterparties of OTC transactions, with respect to most of each Trading Company’s assets.  As such, in the event that the Commodity Brokers are unable to perform, the Trading Company’s assets are at risk and, in such event, investors may only recover a pro rata share of their investment in the Partnership or nothing at all.  Exchange-traded futures and futures-styled option contracts are marked to market on a daily basis, with variations in value credited or charged to each Trading Company’s account on a daily basis.  The Commodity Brokers, as futures commission merchants for each Trading Company’s exchange-traded contracts, are required, pursuant to CFTC regulations, to segregate from their own assets, and for the sole benefit of their commodity customers, all funds held by them with respect to exchange-traded futures and futures-styled options contracts, including an amount equal to the net unrealized gain on all open futures and futures-styled options contracts.  With respect to each Trading Company’s over-the-counter foreign exchange contracts with MS&Co., MSCG and Newedge, there are no daily settlements of variations in value, and there is no requirement to segregate funds held with respect to such contracts.  In the event of a shortfall in segregated customer funds held by the futures commission
 

 

 
- 19 -
 

 
 

 

merchant, the Trading Company’s assets on account with the futures commission merchant may be at risk, and in such event, the Trading Company may only recover a pro rata share of the available customer funds.
 
Risks Relating to the Trading Advisors
 
You should not rely on the past performance of the Trading Advisors in deciding to purchase Units.  Since the future performance of a Trading Advisor is unpredictable, each Trading Advisor’s past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
 

 
Reliance on the Trading Advisors to Trade Successfully.  Each Trading Advisor is responsible for making all futures, forwards, and options trading decisions on behalf of the applicable Trading Company.  Demeter has no control over the specific trades the Trading Advisors may make, leverage used, risks and/or concentrations assumed or whether the Trading Advisors will act in accordance with the disclosure documents or descriptive materials furnished by them to Demeter.  Demeter can provide no assurance that the trading programs employed by the Trading Advisors will be successful.
 

 
Market Factors may Adversely Influence the Trading Programs.  Often, the most unprofitable market conditions for the Trading Companies are those in which prices “whipsaw,” that is, such price moves quickly upward (or downward), then reverses, then moves upward (or downward) again, then reverses again.  In such conditions, the Trading Advisors may establish positions based on incorrectly identifying both the brief upward or downward price movements as trends, whereas in fact no trends sufficient to generate profits develop.
 
- 20 -
 

 
 

 

Possible Consequences of Using Multiple Trading Advisors.  Each Trading Advisor makes trading decisions independent of the other Trading Advisors for the Partnership.  Thus, it is possible that the Partnership could hold opposite positions in the same or similar futures, forwards, and options, thereby offsetting any potential for profit from these positions.
 

 
Increasing Assets Managed by a Trading Advisor may Adversely Affect Performance.  The rates of return achieved by a Trading Advisor often diminish as the assets under its management increases.  This can occur for many reasons, including the inability of the Trading Advisor to execute larger position sizes at desired prices and because of the need to adjust the Trading Advisor’s trading program to avoid exceeding speculative position limits.  These are limits established by the CFTC and the exchanges on the number of speculative futures and options contracts in a commodity that one trader may own or control.  The Trading Advisors have not agreed to limit the amount of additional assets that they will manage.
 

 
You will not be Aware of Changes to Trading Programs.  Because of the proprietary nature of each Trading Advisor’s trading programs, you generally will not be advised if adjustments are made to a Trading Advisor’s trading program in order to accommodate additional assets under management or for any other reason.
 

 
A Trading Advisor may Terminate its Advisory Agreement.  Generally, the advisory agreements with the current Trading Advisors had an initial one-year term, which renew for
 

 
- 21 -
 

 
 

 

additional one-year terms annually, unless terminated by the Trading Manager or the Trading Advisor.  One of the advisory agreements had a shorter initial term and has a three-month renewal term.  In the event an advisory agreement is not renewed, the Trading Manager may not be able to enter into arrangements with that Trading Advisor or another trading advisor on terms substantially similar to the advisory agreements described in this Memorandum.
 

 
Disadvantages of Replacing or Switching Trading Advisors.  A Trading Advisor generally is required to recoup previous trading losses before it can earn performance based compensation.  However, the Trading Manager may elect to replace a Trading Advisor that has a “loss carry-forward.”  In that case, the Trading Company would lose the “free ride” of any potential recoupment of the prior loses.  In addition, the new Trading Advisor would earn performance-based compensation on the first dollars of investment profits. The effect of the replacement of or the reallocation of assets away from Trading Advisors therefore could be significant.
 
Taxation Risks
 
You May Have Tax Liability Attributable To Your Interest in the Partnership Even If You Have Received No Distributions and Redeemed No Units and Even if the Partnership Generated a Loss.  If the Partnership has profit for a taxable year, the profit will be includible in your taxable income, whether or not cash or other property is actually distributed to you by the Partnership.  Demeter presently does not intend to make any distributions from the Partnership.  Accordingly, it is anticipated that federal income taxes on your allocable share of the Partnership’s
 

 

 
- 22 -
 

 
 

 

profits will exceed the amount of distributions to you, if any, for a taxable year, so that you must be prepared to fund any tax liability from redemptions of Units or other sources.  In addition, the Partnership may have capital losses from trading activities that cannot be deducted against the Partnership’s interest income so that you may have to pay taxes on interest income even if the Partnership generates a net loss.
 

 
The Partnership’s Tax Returns Could be Audited.  The Internal Revenue Service could audit the Partnership’s federal income tax returns.  If an audit results in an adjustment to the Partnership’s tax return, limited partners in the Partnership could be required to file amended returns and pay additional tax.
 

 
You Will Recognize Short-Term Capital Gain.  Profits on futures contracts traded in regulated U.S. and some foreign exchanges, foreign currency contracts traded in the interbank market, and U.S. and some foreign exchange-traded options on commodities are generally taxed as short-term capital gain to the extent of 40% of gains with respect to section 1256 contracts and at least 50% of the gain arising from a mixed straddle account and are currently taxed at a maximum marginal tax rate of 35%.
 

 
The IRS Could Challenge Allocations of Recognized Gains to limited partners who Redeem.  The Limited Partnership Agreement of the Partnership provides that recognized gains may be specially allocated for tax purposes to redeeming limited partners.  If the IRS were to successfully
 

 
- 23 -
 

 
 

 

challenge such allocations, each remaining limited partner’s share of recognized gains would be increased.
 

 
The IRS Could Take the Position that Deductions for Certain Partnership Expenses Are Subject To Various Limitations.  Non-corporate taxpayers are subject to certain limitations for deductions for “investment advisory expenses” for federal income tax and alternative minimum tax purposes.   The IRS could argue that certain Partnership expenses are investment advisory expenses.  Prospective investors should discuss with their tax advisers the tax consequences of an investment in the Partnership.

Item 7.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND
 
                        RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
 
Liquidity.  MS&Co. and its affiliates (Newedge with respect to Kaiser I, LLC) act as custodians of each Trading Company’s assets pursuant to customer agreements and foreign exchange customer agreement.  The Partnership allocates substantially all of its assets to multiple Trading Companies.  Such assets are deposited in the Trading Companies’ trading accounts with MS&Co. or its affiliates (Newedge with respect to Kaiser I, LLC).  The funds in such accounts are available for margin and are used to engage in Futures Interest trading pursuant to instructions provided by the Trading Advisors.  The assets are held in either non-interest bearing bank accounts or in securities and instruments permitted by the CFTC for investment of customer segregated or secured funds.  Since the Partnership’s sole purpose is to trade Futures Interests indirectly through the investment in the Trading Companies, it is expected that the Trading Companies will continue to own such liquid assets for margin purposes.

The Trading Companies’ investment in Futures Interests may, from time to time, be illiquid.  Most U.S. futures exchanges limit fluctuations in prices during a single day by regulations referred to as “daily price fluctuations limits” or “daily limits”.  Trades may not be executed at prices beyond the daily limit.  If the price for a particular futures or options contract has increased or decreased by an amount equal to the daily limit, positions in that futures or options contract can neither be taken nor liquidated unless traders are willing to effect trades at or within the limit.  Futures prices have occasionally moved the daily limit for several consecutive days with little or no trading.  These market conditions could prevent the Trading Companies from promptly liquidating their futures or options contracts and result in restrictions on redemptions.

- 27 -

 
 

 

There is no limitation on daily price movements in trading forward contracts on foreign currencies.  The markets for some world currencies have low trading volume and are illiquid, which may prevent the Trading Companies from trading in potentially profitable markets or prevent the Trading Companies from promptly liquidating unfavorable positions in such markets, subjecting them to substantial losses.  Either of these market conditions could result in restrictions on redemptions.  For the periods covered by this report, illiquidity has not materially affected the Partnership’s assets.

There are no known material trends, demands, commitments, events, or uncertainties at the present time that are reasonably likely to result in the Partnership’s liquidity increasing or decreasing in any material way.

Capital Resources.  The Partnership does not have, nor does it expect to have, any capital assets.  Redemptions, exchanges, and sales of Units in the future will affect the amount of funds available for investments in Futures Interests in subsequent periods.  It is not possible to estimate the amount, and therefore the impact, of future inflows and outflows of Units.

There are no known material trends, favorable or unfavorable, that would affect, nor any expected material changes to, the Partnership’s capital resource arrangements at the present time.

Results of Operations
General.  The Partnership's results depend on the Trading Advisors and the ability of each Trading Advisor's trading program to take advantage of price movements in the futures, forwards and options

- 28 -

 
 

 

markets.  The following presents a summary of the Partnership’s operations for the years ended
December 31, 2009 and 2008, and for the period from August 1, 2007 (commencement of operations) to December 31, 2007, and a general discussion of its trading activities during each period.  It is important to note, however, that the Trading Advisors trade in various markets at different times and that prior activity in a particular market does not mean that such market will be actively traded by the Trading Advisors or will be profitable in the future.  Consequently, the results of operations of the Partnership are difficult to discuss other than in the context of the Trading Advisors’ trading activities on behalf of the Partnership during the period in question.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The Partnership’s results of operations set forth in the financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), which require the use of certain accounting policies that affect the amounts reported in these financial statements, including the following:  the contracts the Trading Companies’ trade are accounted for on a trade-date basis and marked to market on a daily basis. The difference between their original contract value and fair value is recorded on the Statements of Operations as “Net change in unrealized gain (loss)” for open contracts, and recorded as “Realized trading gain (loss)” when open positions are closed out.  The sum of these amounts constitutes the Trading Company’s trading results.  The fair value of a futures contract is the settlement price on the exchange on which that futures contract is traded on a particular day.  The value of a foreign currency forward contract is based on the spot rate as of the close of business.



- 29 -

 
 

 

Demeter believes that, based on the nature of the operations of the Partnership, no assumptions relating to the application of critical accounting policies other than those presently used could reasonably affect reported amounts.

Year Ended December 31, 2009
The Partnership recorded total realized/net change in unrealized depreciation on investments of $(2,462,992) and expenses totaling $1,503,016, resulting in a net loss of $3,966,008 for the year ended December 31, 2009.  The Partnership’s net asset value per Unit by share Class is provided in the table below.

Total subscriptions and redemptions across all share Classes for the year ended December 31, 2009, were $39,383,315 and $11,542,783, respectively, and the Partnership’s ending capital was $58,933,830 at December 31, 2009 an increase of $23,874,524 from ending capital at December 31, 2008 of $35,059,306.

The most significant trading losses of approximately 2.8% were experienced within the energy markets, primarily during May, June, July, and September, from short futures positions in crude oil and its related products as prices increased on optimism that a rebound in global economic growth might boost energy demand.  Additional losses were experienced during October and December from newly established long futures positions in crude oil and its related products as prices reversed

lower amid speculation of waning energy demand after the U.S. government reported a rise in inventories.  Within the global interest rate sector, losses of approximately 2.6% were recorded during January, April, June, July, October, and December.  During January, losses were experienced from long positions in U.S., Australian, and Japanese fixed-income futures as prices dropped following news that debt sales might increase as governments around the world boosted spending.  During the second quarter, long positions in U.S. interest-rate futures resulted in additional losses as prices moved lower after a pledge from Group of 20 (“G-20”) leaders to support the global economy and rising investor confidence sapped demand for the “safe haven” of government bonds. Furthermore, short positions in Japanese fixed-income futures also recorded losses during June as prices increased after the Bank of Japan indicated that they remain cautious about the Japanese economy.  Lastly, losses were incurred during October and December from long positions in U.S. and European fixed-income futures as prices decreased on concerns that an unprecedented supply of government debt might outweigh demand, as well as on forecasts that the U.S. economy will expand in 2010.  Within the currency markets, losses of approximately 1.6% were recorded primarily during February, March, April, June, August, and October.  During February and March, long positions in the Japanese yen versus the U.S. dollar resulted in losses as the value of the Japanese yen reversed lower against most of its rivals amid speculation that the Bank of Japan would intervene to weaken the currency.  Additional losses were incurred primarily during March, April, and May from short positions in the euro and British pound versus the U.S. dollar as the value of the U.S. dollar moved lower relative to most of its rivals following the U.S. Federal Reserve’s surprise plans to begin a more aggressive phase of quantitative easing.  During June and August, further losses were recorded from long positions in the Japanese yen, euro, and

- 31 -

 
 

 

British pound versus the U.S. dollar as the value of the U.S. dollar reversed higher against these currencies amid better-than-expected economic data out of the U.S.  Lastly, losses were recorded during October from long positions in the Canadian dollar and Mexican peso versus the U.S. dollar as the value of the U.S. dollar increased relative to these currencies amid speculation that U.S. and European financial institutions may have to raise more capital, thereby spurring demand for the U.S. dollar as a “safe haven” currency.  A portion of the Partnership’s losses for the year was offset by gains of approximately 2.0% achieved within the global stock index sector, primarily during February, June, August, September, November, and December.  Gains were recorded during February from short positions in U.S. equity index futures as prices declined due to disappointing corporate earnings reports.  Additional gains were experienced during June from long positions in Pacific Rim and U.S. equity index futures as prices rose amid better-than-expected corporate earnings reports and news that G-20 leaders pledged more than $1 trillion to cushion the global economy from further financial turmoil.  During August and September, long positions in U.S., European, and Australian equity index futures resulted in gains as prices rose due to positive economic data.  Lastly, gains were recorded during November and December from long positions in U.S., European, and Pacific Rim equity index futures as prices continued to trend higher following a pledge from the G-20 leaders to maintain stimulus measures, as well as fundamental signs that the global economy might be recovering.  Gains of approximately 1.0% were experienced within the agricultural markets, primarily during the second and third quarters, from long positions in sugar futures as prices increased on expectations of a drop in global production and concerns that unfavorable weather in producing countries and rising import demand may worsen the global supply shortfall.  Gains were also experienced in December from long positions in sugar futures as

- 32 -

 
 

 

prices reached a 28-year high amid news that excess rain in Brazil, the world’s biggest producer of sugar, hampered harvesting and curbed output.  Additional gains were experienced from short futures positions in lean hogs as prices fell during April and June amid speculation of a drop in demand due to ongoing swine flu concerns.  Smaller gains of approximately 0.7% were recorded within the metals sector, primarily during November, from long futures positions in gold and silver as prices were supported higher amid a drop in the value of the U.S. dollar.

Year Ended December 31, 2008
The Partnership recorded total realized/net change in unrealized appreciation on investments of $4,020,161 and expenses totaling $699,324, resulting in net income of $3,320,837 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The Partnership’s net asset value per Unit by share Class is provided in the table below.

The most significant trading gains of approximately 6.6% were experienced within the global interest rate sector throughout the majority of the year from long positions in U.S., European, and

- 33 -

 
 

 

Australian fixed-income futures as prices moved higher in a worldwide “flight-to-quality” amid a consistent decline in the global equity markets, as well as worries regarding the fundamental health of the global economy and financial system.  Additionally, prices of U.S. fixed-income futures moved higher as the U.S. Federal Reserve cut interest rates to an unprecedented target range of 0% to 0.25%, while European and Australian interest rate futures prices increased after the European Central Bank and Reserve Bank of Australia lowered borrowing costs in an attempt to stimulate economic growth.  Within the global stock index sector, gains of approximately 5.5% were recorded primarily during February, March, and June from short positions in U.S., European, and Pacific Rim equity index futures as prices decreased during the first half of the year on concerns that a persistent U.S. housing slump, mounting losses linked to U.S. sub-prime mortgage investments, rising commodity prices, and a weakening job market may restrain consumer spending, erode corporate earnings, and curb global economic growth.  Additional gains were experienced during September, October, November, and December as prices dropped sharply amid unprecedented U.S. financial market turmoil and growing concerns that efforts by central banks and governments around the world to support the financial system may not prevent a global recession.  Within the energy markets, gains of approximately 4.4% were recorded primarily during the first half of the year from long futures positions in crude oil and its related products as prices moved consistently higher due to speculation that OPEC may cut production, ongoing geopolitical concerns in the Middle East, growing Asian fuel consumption, and strong demand for physical commodities as an inflation hedge.  Additional gains were recorded primarily during the fourth quarter from newly established short futures positions in crude oil and its related products as prices sharply decreased on concerns that a substantial global economic slowdown may erode energy demand.  Elsewhere,

- 34 -

 
 

 

long positions in natural gas futures also resulted in gains during February and March as prices increased on expectations of a rise in demand due to colder weather in the U.S. Northeast, news of a drop in U.S. inventories, and forecasts for an active hurricane season in the Atlantic.  Further gains were recorded during the fourth quarter from newly established short positions in natural gas futures as prices dropped amid rising U.S. inventories and slowing global energy demand.  Within the currency sector, gains of approximately 2.9% were experienced primarily during a majority of the first half of the year from long positions in the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, and Brazilian real versus the U.S. dollar as the value of the U.S. dollar decreased relative to most of its rivals amid speculation that signs of a slowing U.S. economy may spur the U.S. Federal Reserve to lower interest rates at a faster pace than other central banks around the world.  Additional gains were recorded primarily during October and November from short positions in the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, and British pound versus the U.S. dollar as the value of the U.S. dollar moved higher against most of its rivals in tandem with rising U.S. dollar-denominated Treasury bonds amid the aforementioned “flight-to-quality”. Within the agricultural markets, gains of approximately 1.8% were experienced primarily during January, February, and June, from long positions in cocoa futures as prices rose on speculation that crops in the Ivory Coast, the world’s largest cocoa producer, were developing more slowly than anticipated.  Additional gains were recorded primarily during October and November from short futures positions in live cattle, lean hogs, and cotton as prices declined amid rising inventories and growing concerns that slowing global economic growth may erode demand for food and raw materials.  Lastly, gains of approximately 1.5% were recorded within the metals sector primarily during January, February, and June from long positions in aluminum and copper futures as prices increased during the first half of the year due to falling

inventories and rising demand from China and India.  Further gains were recorded primarily during September, October, November, and December from short futures positions in aluminum, nickel, copper, and zinc as prices dropped amid ongoing worries that a global economic recession may erode demand for base metals.

Period from August 1, 2007 (commencement of operations) to December 31, 2007
The Partnership recorded total realized/net change in unrealized appreciation on investments of $472,131 and expenses totaling $103,670, resulting in net income of $368,461 for the period from August 1, 2007 (commencement of operations) to December 31, 2007.  The Partnership’s net asset value per Unit by share Class is provided in the table below.

The most significant trading gains of approximately 3.6% were recorded in the energy markets, primarily during September, October, and December from long futures positions in crude oil and its related products as prices trended higher due to persistent concerns that instability in Iraq and tension

regarding Iran’s nuclear program would negatively affect global supply.  In addition, energy prices increased due to continued weakness in the value of the U.S. dollar as U.S. dollar-denominated assets became more attractive to investors.  Within the agricultural sector, gains of approximately 2.4% were experienced, primarily during September, November, and December, from long futures positions in the soybean complex as prices increased in September due to concerns that hot, dry weather in U.S. growing regions may have damaged crops, increased purchases from China, and speculation that the rising cost of oil may boost demand for alternative biofuels made from crops.  Elsewhere in the agricultural complex, long positions in the wheat futures resulted in gains as prices increased during September amid persistently strong international demand and fears of a shortage in supply.  Within the global interest rate sector, gains of approximately 0.7% were recorded, primarily during August and November, from long positions in U.S. fixed-income futures as prices increased following a sharp decline in global equity markets and forecasts of deeper losses related to sub-prime investments.  Additional gains of approximately 0.8% were recorded within the metals markets, primarily during September, October, and December from long futures positions in gold as prices moved higher due to a decline in the value of the U.S. dollar and uncertainty regarding the future direction of the global economy.  Elsewhere, long positions in copper futures resulted in gains during September as prices increased amid speculation that global demand may be buoyed by China, the world’s largest consumer.  Smaller gains of approximately 0.2% were experienced within the currency sector, primarily during September and October, from long positions in the euro, Canadian dollar, Australian dollar, and Turkish lira versus the U.S. dollar as the value of the value of the U.S. dollar declined relative to most of its major rivals leading up to and after the U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision to reduce its benchmark interest rate to 4.5%, as well as on expectations

of further rate reductions in the near term.  Meanwhile, the value of the Canadian dollar and Australian dollar, also known as the “commodity currencies”, moved higher in the wake of consistently rising commodity prices.  A portion of the Partnership’s gains for the year was offset by a loss of approximately 0.4% within the global stock index sector, primarily during August, November, and December from long positions in U.S., European, and Pacific Rim equity index futures as prices decreased on persistent concerns that a collapsing U.S. sub-prime mortgage market and declining U.S. real estate prices may pull the global economy into a recession.

For further sector trading information, please refer to the  Partnership’s Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009, which are included in Item 8 of this Form 10-K.

The Partnership's income and losses are allocated among its partners for income tax purposes.

Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.
As defined by Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820-10-55, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (formerly, Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 157, Fair Value Measurements), fair value is the amount that would be recovered when an asset is sold or an amount paid to transfer a liability, in an ordinary transaction, between market participants at the measurement date (exit price).  Market price observability is impacted by a number of factors,

- 38 -

 
 

 

including the types of investments, the characteristics specific to the investment, and the state of the market (including the existence and the transparency of transactions between market participants).  Investments with readily available actively quoted prices in an ordinary market will generally have a higher degree of market price observability and a lesser degree of judgment used in measuring fair value.

ASC 820-10-55 requires use of a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three levels: Level 1 – unadjusted quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities; Level 2 – inputs other than unadjusted quoted market prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly (including quoted prices for similar investments, interest rates, credit risk); and Level 3 – unobservable inputs for the asset or liability (including the Partnership’s own assumptions used in determining the fair value of investments).

In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy.  In such cases, an investment’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.  The Partnership’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment, and considers factors specific to the investment.


The Partnership adopted ASC 820-10-55 as of January 1, 2008.  The adoption of ASC 820-10-55 did not have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements, other than enhanced financial statements disclosures.

Other Pronouncements
(a)  Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
On July 1, 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued SFAS No. 168, The FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, also known as FASB ASC 105-10, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“ASC 105-10” or the “Codification”).  ASC 105-10 established the exclusive authoritative reference for U.S. GAAP for use in financial statements except for SEC rules and interpretive releases, which are also authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants.  The Codification supersedes all existing non-SEC accounting and reporting standards.  The Codification became the single source of authoritative U.S. GAAP and is effective for financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009.

(b)  Investment in Certain Entities That Calculate Net Asset Value per Share (or Its Equivalent)
In September 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-12 addressing Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures, Topic ASC 820. ASU No. 2009-12 amended Subtopic 820-10, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures-Overall, for the fair value measurement of investments in certain entities that calculate net asset value per share or its equivalent.  The amendments in ASU No. 2009-12 permit, as a practical expedient, a reporting entity to measure the fair value of an investment that is within the scope of the amendments in ASU No. 2009-12 on the basis of the net asset value per share of the investment or its equivalent.  Additionally, ASU No. 2009-12 requires disclosures by major category of investment about the attributes of the

- 42 -

 
 

 

investments within the scope of the amendments, such as the nature of any restrictions on redemptions, any unfunded commitments and the investment strategies of the investees.  The amendments in ASU No. 2009-12 are effective for interim and annual periods ending after December 15, 2009.  Management believes that the adoption of ASU No. 2009-12 did not have a material impact on the financial statements of the Partnership. 

(c)  Subsequent Events
The Partnership adopted ASC 855-10, Subsequent Events (formerly, SFAS No. 165, Subsequent Events), which was issued in May 2009, and ASU No. 2010-09, Subsequent Events (Topic 855) Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements, which was issued in February 2010.  ASC 855-10 establishes general standards of accounting for and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued.  ASC 855-10 is effective for the interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009 and ASU No. 2010-09 is effective immediately.  Management has performed its evaluation of subsequent events and has determined that there was no subsequent events requiring adjustment or disclosures in the December 31, 2009 financial statements.

(d)  Fair Value Measurements
ASC 820-10-65, Fair Value Measurements (formerly, FASB Staff Position (“FSP”) SFAS No. 157-4, Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly),was issued in April 2009.  ASC 820-10-65 provides additional guidance for determining fair value and requires

- 43 -

 
 

 

new disclosures regarding the categories of fair value instruments, as well as the inputs and valuation techniques utilized to determine fair value and any changes to the inputs and valuation techniques during the period.  ASC 820-10-65 is effective for the interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009.  The adoption of ASC 820-10-65 did not have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
(a)  Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements
In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06, Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements, which, among other things, amends ASC 820 to require entities to separately present purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in their reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements (i.e., to present such items on a gross basis rather than on a net basis), and which clarifies existing disclosure requirements provided by ASC 820 regarding the level of disaggregation and the inputs and valuation techniques used to measure fair value for measurements that fall within either Level 2 or Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.  ASU No. 2010-06 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements which are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years.  The Partnership is currently assessing the impact of adopting ASU No. 2010-06.



- 44 -

 
 

 

(b)  Consolidation
In June 2009, the FASB issued ASC 810-10, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities (formerly, SFAS 167, Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R), Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities).  ASC 810-10 contains new criteria for determining the primary beneficiary, and increases the frequency of required reassessments to determine whether a company is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity.  ASC 810-10 also contains a new requirement that any term, transaction, or arrangement that does not have a substantive effect on an entity’s status as a variable interest entity, a company’s power over a variable interest entity, or a company’s obligation to absorb losses or its right to receive benefits of an entity must be disregarded in applying Interpretation 46(R)’s provisions.  ASC 810-10 is applicable for annual periods beginning after November 15, 2009, and interim periods thereafter.  Effective February 25, 2010, the FASB has decided to indefinitely defer the application of ASC 810-10 for certain entities.  Management believes that the Partnership meets the criteria of the indefinite deferral of the application of ASC 810-10.

Item 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
Introduction
All of the Partnership’s assets are subject to the risk of trading loss through its investments in the Trading Companies, each of which invests substantially all of its assets in the trading program of an unaffiliated Trading Advisor.  The market-sensitive instruments held by the Trading Companies are acquired for speculative trading purposes, and substantially all of the respective Trading Companies’ assets are subject to the risk of trading loss.  Unlike an operating company, the risk of market-sensitive instruments is integral, not incidental, to the Trading Companies’ main line of business.

The futures, forwards and options traded by the Trading Companies involve varying degrees of related market risk.  Market risk is often dependent upon changes in the level or volatility of interest rates, exchange rates, and prices of financial instruments and commodities, factors that result in frequent changes in the fair value of the Trading Companies’ open positions, and consequently in their earnings, whether realized or unrealized, and cash flow.  Gains and losses on open positions of exchange-traded futures, exchange-traded forward, and exchange-traded futures-styled options contracts are settled daily through variation margin.  Gains and losses on off-exchange-traded forward currency contracts are settled upon termination of the contract.  Gains and losses on off-exchange-traded forward currency options contracts are settled upon an agreed upon settlement date.  However, the Trading Companies are required to meet margin requirements equal to the net unrealized loss on open forward currency contracts in the Trading Companies’ accounts with the counterparty, which is accomplished by daily maintenance of the cash balance in a custody account held at MS&Co.
- 46 -

 
 

 

The total market risk of the respective Trading Companies may increase or decrease as it is influenced by a wide variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the diversification among the Trading Companies’ open positions, the volatility present within the markets, and the liquidity of the markets.

The face value of the market sector instruments held by the Trading Companies is typically many times the applicable margin requirements.  Margin requirements generally range between 2% and 15% of contract face value.  Additionally, the use of leverage causes the face value of the market sector instruments held by the Trading Companies typically to be many times the total capitalization of the Trading Companies.

The Partnership’s and the Trading Companies’ past performance is no guarantee of their future results.  Any attempt to numerically quantify the Trading Companies’ market risk is limited by the uncertainty of their speculative trading.  The Trading Companies’ speculative trading and use of leverage may cause future losses and volatility (i.e., “risk of ruin”) that far exceed the Trading Companies’ experiences to date disclosed under the “Trading Companies’ Value at Risk in Different Market Sectors” section and significantly exceed the Value at Risk (“VaR”) tables disclosed below.

Limited partners will not be liable for losses exceeding the current net asset value of their investment.

Quantifying the Trading Companies’ Trading Value at Risk
The following quantitative disclosures regarding the Trading Companies’ market risk exposures

- 47 -

 
 

 

contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor from civil liability provided for such statements by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (set forth in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934).  All quantitative disclosures in this section are deemed to be forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor, except for statements of historical fact.

The Trading Companies accounts for open positions on the basis of mark to market accounting principles.  Any loss in the market value of the Trading Companies’ open positions is directly reflected in the Trading Companies’ earnings and cash flow.

The Trading Companies’ risk exposure in the market sectors traded by the Trading Advisors is estimated below in terms of VaR.  VaR for a particular market sector is estimated by Demeter using a model based upon historical simulation (with a confidence level of 99%) which involves constructing a distribution of hypothetical daily changes in the value of a trading portfolio.  The VaR model takes into account linear exposures to risks including equity and commodity prices, interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and correlation among these variables.  The hypothetical daily changes in the value of a Trading Company’s portfolio value are based on daily percentage changes observed in key market indices or other market factors (“market risk factors”) to which the portfolio is sensitive.  The one-day 99% confidence level of the Trading Companies’ VaR corresponds to the reliability of the expectations that the Trading Company’s trading losses in one day will not exceed the maximum loss indicated by the VaR.  The 99% one-day confidence level is not an indication of probability of such losses, nor does VaR typically represent the worst case outcome.  Demeter uses approximately four years of daily

- 48 -

 
 

 

market data and re-values its portfolio for each of the historical market moves that occurred over this period.  This enables Demeter to generate a distribution of daily “simulated profit and loss” outcomes.

The Trading Companies’ VaR computations are based on the risk representation of the underlying benchmark for each instrument or contract and do not distinguish between exchange and non-exchange dealer-based instruments.  They are also not based on exchange and/or dealer-based maintenance margin requirements.

VaR models, including the models used by Morgan Stanley and Demeter, are continually evolving as trading portfolios become more diverse and modeling techniques and systems capabilities improve. Please note that the VaR model is used to quantify market risk for historic reporting purposes only and is not utilized by either Demeter or the Trading Advisors in their daily risk management activities.  Please further note that VaR as described above may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other entities.

The VaR for a market category represents the one-day downside risk for the aggregate exposures associated with this market category.  The Aggregate Value at Risk listed above represents the VaR of the respective Trading Companies’ open positions across all the market categories, and is less than the sum of the VaRs for all such market categories due to the diversification benefit across asset classes.

Because the business of the Trading Companies is the speculative trading of futures, forwards and options, the composition of their trading portfolio can change significantly over any given time period, or even within a single trading day.  Such changes could positively or negatively materially impact market risk as measured by VaR.

The tables below supplement the December 31, 2009 and 2008 VaR set forth above by presenting the Trading Companies’ high, low, and average VaR, as a percentage of total net assets for the four quarter-end reporting periods from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009 and January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008, respectively.

Limitations on Value at Risk as an Assessment of Market Risk
VaR models permit estimation of a portfolio’s aggregate market risk exposure, incorporating a range of varied market risks, reflect risk reduction due to portfolio diversification or hedging activities, and can cover a wide range of portfolio assets.  However, VaR risk measures should be viewed in light of the methodology’s limitations, which include, but may not be limited to the following:
- 55 -

 
 

 


·  
past changes in market risk factors will not always result  in accurate predictions of the distributions and correlations of future market movements;
·  
changes in portfolio value caused by market movements may differ from those of the VaR model;
·  
VaR results reflect past market fluctuations applied to current trading positions while future risk depends on future positions;
·  
VaR using a one-day time horizon does not fully capture the market risk of positions that cannot be liquidated or hedged within one day; and
·  
the historical market risk factor data used for VaR estimation may provide only limited insight into losses that could be incurred under certain unusual market movements.

In addition, the VaR tables above, as well as the past performance of the Partnership and the Trading Companies, give no indication of the Partnership’s potential “risk of ruin”.

The VaR tables provided present the results of the Partnership’s VaR for each of the Trading Companies’ market risk exposures and on an aggregate basis at December 31, 2009 and 2008 and for the four quarter-end reporting periods during calendar years 2009 and 2008.  VaR is not necessarily representative of the Trading Companies’ historic risk, nor should it be used to predict the Partnership and the Trading Companies’ future financial performance or their ability to manage or monitor risk. There can be no assurance that the Trading Companies’ actual losses on a particular day will not exceed the VaR amounts indicated above or that such losses will not occur more than once in 100 trading days.
- 56 -

 
 

 


Non-Trading Risk
The Trading Companies have non-trading market risk on their foreign cash balances.  These balances and any market risk they may represent are immaterial.

The Trading Companies also maintain a substantial portion of their available assets in cash at MS&Co.; as of December 31, 2009, such amounts are equal to:
·  
approximately 87% of Aspect I, LLC’s net assets.
·  
approximately 98% of Augustus I, LLC’s net assets.
·  
approximately 81% of Chesapeake I, LLC’s net assets.
·  
approximately 96% of GLC I, LLC’s net assets.
·  
approximately 99% of Kaiser I, LLC’s net assets.
·  
approximately 90% of TT II, LLC’s net assets.
·  
approximately 91% of WNT I, L.L.C.’s net assets.

A decline in short-term interest rates would result in a decline in the Trading Companies’ cash management income.  This cash flow risk is not considered to be material.

Materiality, as used throughout this section, is based on an assessment of reasonably possible market movements and any associated potential losses, taking into account the leverage, optionality, and multiplier features of the Trading Companies’ market-sensitive instruments, in relation to the Trading Companies’ net assets.

Qualitative Disclosures Regarding Primary Trading Risk Exposures
The following qualitative disclosures regarding the Partnership’s market risk exposures – except for (A) those disclosures that are statements of historical fact and (B) the descriptions of how the Partnership manages its primary market risk exposures – constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  The Partnership’s primary market risk exposures, as well as the strategies used and to be used by Demeter and the Trading Advisors for managing such exposures, are subject to numerous uncertainties, contingencies and risks, any one of which could cause the actual results of the Partnership’s risk controls to differ materially from the objectives of such strategies.  Government interventions, defaults and expropriations, illiquid markets, the emergence of dominant fundamental factors, political upheavals, changes in historical price relationships, an influx of new market participants, increased regulation, and many other factors could result in material losses, as well as in material changes to the risk exposures and the risk management strategies of the Partnership.

Investors must be prepared to lose all or substantially all of their investment in the Partnership.

The Trading Advisor for each Trading Company, in general, tends to utilize its trading system(s) to take positions when market opportunities develop, and Demeter anticipates that the Trading Advisors will continue to do so.

The following were the primary trading risk exposures of the Partnership at December 31, 2009, by market sector.  It may be anticipated, however, that these market exposures will vary materially over time.

Equity.  The largest market exposure of the Partnership at December 31, 2009, was to the global stock index sector, primarily to equity price risk in the G-7 countries.  The G-7 countries consist of France, the U.S., the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada.  The stock index futures traded by the Partnership are by law limited to futures on broadly-based indices.  At December 31, 2009, the Partnership’s primary market exposures were to the S&P 500 (U.S.), Euro Stox 50 (Europe), FTSE 100 (United Kingdom), DAX (Germany), SPI 200 (Australia), CAC 40 (France), NASDAQ 100 (U.S.), Canadian S&P 60 (Canada), Taiwan (Taiwan), NIKKEI 225 (Japan), IBEX 35 (Spain), AEX (The Netherlands), Dow Jones (U.S.), Russell 2000 (U.S.), S&P Midcap (U.S.), S&P MIB (Italy), Hang Seng (Hong Kong), H-Shares (Hong Kong), OMX 30 (Sweden), Euro Stox 600 (Europe), All Share (South Africa), S&P Nifty (India), Singapore Free (Singapore), Euro Stox Mid 200 (Europe), Tech DAX (Europe), MDAX (Europe), and Euro First (Europe) stock indices.  The Partnership is typically exposed to the risk of adverse price trends or static markets in the U.S., European, and Pacific Rim stock indices.  Static markets would not cause major market changes, but would make it difficult for the Partnership to avoid trendless price movements, resulting in numerous small losses.

Currency.  At December 31, 2009, the Partnership had market exposure to the currency sector.  The Partnership’s currency exposure is to exchange rate fluctuations, primarily fluctuations which disrupt the historical pricing relationships between different currencies and currency pairs.  Interest rate

- 59 -

 
 

 

changes, as well as political and general economic conditions influence these fluctuations.  The Partnership trades a large number of currencies, including cross-rates - i.e., positions between two currencies other than the U.S. dollar.  At December 31, 2009, the Partnership’s major exposures were to the euro, Polish zloty, Norwegian krone, Czech koruna, Swedish krona, Hungarian forint, Australian dollar, Canadian dollar, Japanese yen, Swiss franc, British pound, New Zealand dollar, Brazilian real, Russian ruble, Singapore dollar, and Turkish lira currency crosses, as well as to outright U.S. dollar positions.  Outright positions consist of the U.S. dollar vs. other currencies.  These other currencies include major and minor currencies.  Demeter does not anticipate that the risk associated with the Partnership’s currency trades will change significantly in the future.

Interest Rate.  At December 31, 2009, the Partnership had market exposure to the global interest rate sector.  Exposure was primarily spread across the European, U.S., Japanese, Australian, and Canadian interest rate sectors.  Interest rate movements directly affect the price of the sovereign bond futures positions held by the Partnership and indirectly affect the value of its stock index and currency positions.  Interest rate movements in one country, as well as relative interest rate movements between countries, materially impact the Partnership’s profitability.  The Partnership’s interest rate exposure is generally to interest rate fluctuations in the U.S. and the other G-7 countries.  However, the Partnership also takes futures positions in the government debt of smaller nations - e.g., Australia.  Demeter anticipates that the G-7 countries’ and Australian interest rates will remain the primary interest rate exposure of the Partnership for the foreseeable future.  The speculative futures positions held by the Partnership may range from short to long-term instruments.  Consequently, changes in short, medium, or long-term interest rates may have an effect on the Partnership.
- 60 -

 
 

 

Commodity.
Soft Commodities and Agriculturals.  The second largest market exposure of the Partnership at December 31, 2009, was to the markets that comprise these sectors.  Most of the exposure was to the sugar, cotton, cocoa, wheat, coffee, soybean meal, soybeans, live cattle, lean hogs, corn, soybean oil, feeder cattle, and orange juice markets.  Supply and demand inequalities, severe weather disruptions, and market expectations affect price movements in these markets.

Metals.  The third largest market exposure of the Partnership at December 31, 2009, was to the metals sector.  The Partnership's metals exposure was to fluctuations in the price of base metals, such as copper, aluminum, zinc, nickel, lead, and tin, as well as precious metals, such as gold, silver, and platinum.  Economic forces, supply and demand inequalities, geopolitical factors, and market expectations influence price movements in these markets.

Energy.  At December 31, 2009, the Partnership had market exposure to the energy sector.  The Partnership’s energy exposure was shared primarily by futures contracts in crude oil and its related products, as well as in natural gas.  Price movements in these markets result from geopolitical developments, particularly in the Middle East, as well as weather patterns, and other economic fundamentals.  Significant profits and losses, which have been experienced in the past, are expected to continue to be experienced in the future.  Natural gas has exhibited volatility in prices resulting from weather patterns and supply and demand factors and will likely continue in this choppy pattern.

Qualitative Disclosures Regarding Non-Trading Risk Exposure
The following was the only non-trading risk exposure of the Partnership at December 31, 2009:

Foreign Currency Balances. The Partnership’s major foreign currency balances at December 31, 2009, were in British pounds, Japanese yen, euros, Australian dollars, Canadian dollars, Hong Kong dollars, Swedish kroner, Hungarian forint, Swiss francs, South African rands, Norwegian kroner, Turkish lira, Czech koruny, Singapore dollars, and New Zealand dollars.  The Partnership controls the non-trading risk of foreign currency balances by regularly converting them back into U.S. dollars upon liquidation of their respective positions.

Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P.
(formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P.)
Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

To the Limited Partners and the General Partner of
Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P. (formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P.):

We have audited the accompanying statements of financial condition of Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P. (the “Partnership”) as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, and the related statements of operations, changes in partners’ capital, and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, and for the period from August 1, 2007 (commencement of operations) to December 31, 2007. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Partnership’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Partnership is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, such financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P. at December 31, 2009 and 2008, and the results of its operations, changes in its partners’ capital, and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, and for the period from August 1, 2007 (commencement of operations) to December 31, 2007, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P.
(formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P.)
Notes to Financial Statements
 
 
 
1.  Organization

 
Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P. (formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P.) (“Profile MV” or the “Partnership”) is one of the Partnerships in the Managed Futures Multi-Strategy Profile Series, (formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Multi-Strategy Profile Series) comprised of the Partnership, Managed Futures Profile LV, L.P., and Managed Futures Profile HV, L.P. (collectively, the “Profile Series”), was formed on February 22, 2007, under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act, as a multi-advisor commodity pool created to profit from the speculative trading of domestic and foreign futures contracts, forward contracts, foreign exchange commitments, options on physical commodities and futures contracts, spot (cash) commodities and currencies, exchange of futures contracts for physicals transactions and futures contracts transactions, and any rights pertaining thereto (collectively, “Futures Interests”) (refer to Note 7.  Financial Instruments of the Trading Companies).  The Partnership allocates substantially all of its assets to multiple affiliated Trading Companies (each a “Trading Company” or collectively the “Trading Companies”) each of which allocates substantially all of its assets in the trading program of an unaffiliated commodity trading advisor (each a “Trading Advisor”, or collectively, the “Trading Advisors”) registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which makes investment decisions for each respective Trading Company.
 

 
The Partnership commenced trading operations on August 1, 2007, in accordance with the terms of the Limited Partnership Agreement of the Partnership.


- 69 -

 
 

 

 
The general partner of the Partnership and the trading manager of each Trading Company is Demeter Management LLC (“Demeter”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Holdings LLC (“MSSB”).  MSSB is majority-owned indirectly by Morgan Stanley and minority-owned indirectly by Citigroup Inc. (“Citigroup”).  Demeter may reallocate the Partnership’s assets to the different Trading Companies at its sole discretion.
 

 
On April 30, 2009, Demeter Management Corporation was converted from a Delaware corporation to a Delaware limited liability company and changed its name to Demeter Management LLC.
 

 
Demeter does not believe that the change in its ownership had a material impact on the Partnership’s limited partners.  At all times Demeter served as the general partner of the Partnership and the trading manager of the Trading Companies and it continues to do so.  The change in ownership occurred pursuant to the transaction in which Morgan Stanley and Citigroup agreed to combine the Global Wealth Management Group of Morgan Stanley and the Smith Barney division of Citigroup Global Markets Inc. into a new joint venture.  The transaction closed on June 1, 2009.
 

 
Prior to June 1, 2009, Demeter was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Morgan Stanley.
 

 

 


- 70-

 
 

 

 
Effective October 1, 2009, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Augustus I, LLC (“Augustus I, LLC”) was added as a Trading Company to Profile MV.  Augustus I, LLC allocates substantially all of its assets to Augustus Asset Managers Limited (“Augustus”) as the sole Trading Advisor to Augustus I, LLC.  Augustus began trading Profile MV’s assets allocated to Augustus I, LLC effective October 1, 2009.
 

 
Effective October 1, 2009, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney GLC I, LLC (“GLC I, LLC”) was added as a Trading Company to Profile MV.  GLC I, LLC allocates substantially all of its assets to GLC, Ltd. (“GLC”) as the sole Trading Advisor to GLC I, LLC.  GLC began trading Profile MV’s assets allocated to GLC I, LLC effective October 1, 2009.
 

 
Effective October 1, 2009, Demeter change the name of Morgan Stanley Managed Futures MV, L.P. to Managed Futures Profile MV, L.P.  The name change does not have any impact on the operation of the Partnership or its limited partners.
 

 
Effective September 1, 2008, Bridgewater Associated, Inc. (“Bridgewater”) began trading assets for Profile MV.  All of the other Trading Advisors’ trading assets on behalf of the Partnership at such time remained the same.
 

 

 
- 71 -

 
 

 

Effective upon the close of business on September 30, 2009, Bridgewater was terminated as a Trading Advisor to Profile MV and ceased its activities via investment in Morgan Stanley Strategic Alternatives, L.L.C. (“Strategic Alternatives, L.L.C.”).  Bridgewater traded from September 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009.

The financial statements have been prepared using the “Fund of Funds” approach and accordingly all revenue and expense information from the Trading Companies is reflected as a net change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments on the Statements of Operations.  The Partnership maintains sufficient cash balances on hand to satisfy ongoing operating expenses for the Partnership.  As of December 31, 2009 and 2008, the Partnership’s cash balances were zero.

Units of limited partnership interest (“Units”) of the Partnership are being offered in four share classes in a private placement pursuant to Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  Depending on the aggregate amount invested in the Partnership, limited partners receive either class A, B, C or D Units in the Partnership (each a “Class” and collectively the “Classes”).  As of December 31, 2009 and 2008, there were no Class D Units outstanding in Profile MV.  Certain limited partners who are not subject to the ongoing placement agent fee (as described herein) are deemed to hold Class Z Units.  Demeter receives Class Z Units with respect to its investment in the Partnership.
 

 

 
- 72 -

 
 

 

 
Demeter is not required to maintain any investment in the Partnership, and may withdraw any portion of its interest in the Partnership at any time, as permitted by the Limited Partnership Agreement.  In addition, Class Z shares are only being offered to certain individuals affiliated with Morgan Stanley at Demeter’s sole discretion. Class Z Unit holders are not subject to paying the placement agent fee (as defined in Note 2).
 

 
2.  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
Use of Estimates – The financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. “GAAP”), which require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the financial statements and related disclosures.  Management believes that the estimates utilized in the preparation of the financial statements are prudent and reasonable. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
 

 
Revenue Recognition – Net change in appreciation (depreciation) on investments in the Trading Companies is recorded based upon the proportionate share of the Partnership’s aggregate amount of the net performance recorded by each Trading Company.
 

 
Valuation of Investments in Affiliated Trading Companies – The Partnership’s investments in affiliated Trading Companies are stated at fair value which is based on (1) the Partnership’s net contribution to the Trading Companies and (2) its allocated share of the undistributed profits and losses, including realized and change in unrealized gains/losses of the Trading Company.
 
- 73 -

 
 

 

 
Net Income (Loss) per Unit – Net income (loss) per Unit is computed in accordance with the specialized accounting for Investment Companies as illustrated in the Financial Highlights Footnote (See Note 10. Financial Highlights) and is allocated to all partners at the end of each month in proportion to their respective opening capital accounts.
 

 
General Partner Fee – The Partnership pays Demeter a monthly administration fee equal to 1/12 of 1.0% (a 1.0% annual rate) of the net asset value of each Class in the Partnership at the beginning of each month for services in operating and managing the Partnership.
 

 
Placement Agent Fee – Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC, the principal subsidiary of MSSB, currently serves as the placement agent (the “Placement Agent”) and may appoint affiliates or third parties as additional Placement Agents.  The Partnership pays the Placement Agent an ongoing compensation on a monthly basis equal to a percentage of the net asset value of a limited partner’s Units as of the beginning of each month.
 

 
The applicable rate payable by each limited partner will be determined by the Class of Units each limited partner may hold.  Each limited partner pays the Placement Agent the following percentage based on the aggregate amount invested in the Partnership (as adjusted) by each limited partner in accordance with the following schedule:
Class of Units
 
Aggregate Investment
 
Monthly/Annualized Rate (%)
 
A
Up to $249,999
     0.167%/2.0%
B
$250,000 - $499,999
     0.125%/1.5%
C
$500,000 - $4,999,999
     0.083%/1.0%
D
$5,000,000 and above
     0.063%/0.75%
 
- 74 -

 
 

 

 
Certain limited partners who are not subject to the ongoing Placement Agent fee (as described herein) are deemed to hold Class Z Units.  The Placement Agent pays a portion of the ongoing Placement Agent fee it receives from the Partnership to the Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Financial Advisor or Private Wealth Management Investment Representative responsible for selling the Units to the limited partners.
 

 
Partnership Administrative Fee – The Partnership pays Demeter a monthly fee to cover all administrative, operating, offering, and organizational expenses (the “Partnership Administrative Fee”). The monthly Partnership Administrative Fee is equal to 1/12th of 0.40% (a 0.40% annual rate) of the beginning of the month net asset value of the Partnership.
 

 
Continuing Offering – Units of the Partnership are offered in four Classes, identical in all material respects except for the ongoing Placement Agent fees charged. Units within the Partnership Class were initially offered at $1,000 per Unit.  Thereafter, Units are offered on a continuous basis as of the last day of each month (a “Subscription Date”) at the net asset value per Unit for each Class as of the last day of the month.  The minimum subscription amount in the Partnership is $25,000, subject to the discretion of Demeter to accept a lower amount.  Prior to May 2009, the minimum subscription amount in the Partnership was $50,000.  The minimum subscription amount for ERISA/IRA investors is $10,000.  Additional subscriptions can be made in increments of $10,000 if a limited partner has already met the minimum subscription amount, subject to the discretion of Demeter to accept a lower amount.
 

- 75 -

 
 

 

 
Redemptions – Limited partners may redeem some or all of their Units at 100% of the net asset value per Unit as of the last day of any month (a “Redemption Date”).  The Request for Redemption must be delivered to a limited partner’s local Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Branch Office in time for it to be forwarded to and received by Demeter, no later than 3:00 p.m. New York City time, on the last Business Day of the month in which the redemption is to be effective. Investors must maintain a minimum investment in the relevant Partnership of $10,000 unless an investor is withdrawing his or her entire investment.  Prior to May 2009, the minimum investment in the Partnership was $40,000, and $10,000 for ERISA/IRA investors.  Demeter may cause a limited partner to withdraw (in whole or in part) from the Partnership at any time and for any reason upon at least 5 days written notice.  Demeter will not cause a limited partner to withdraw if the value of his or her investment falls below the minimum described above due to the performance of the Partnership.  Demeter may also, in its sole discretion, permit redemptions by limited partners in any amount at any time.  There are no redemption charges.  Demeter endeavors to pay all redemptions within 10 business days after the applicable Redemption Date.  Demeter may suspend redemptions in certain circumstances.
 

 
Exchanges – Limited partners may redeem some or all of their Units at 100% of the net asset value per Unit in the Partnership on the Redemption Date and use the proceeds to purchase Units of any other Profile Series Partnership (a “Partnership Exchange”) on the Subscription Date. Each limited partner may also redeem Units in any other partnership operated by Demeter, and use the proceeds to purchase Units in any of the Profile Series Partnerships (a “Non-Partnership
 

- 76 -

 
 

 

Exchange”) on the Subscription Date (subject to certain restrictions outlined in the Limited Partnership Agreement).

Units Outstanding by Share Class – The table below shows the Units outstanding by share Class for the Partnership as of December 31, 2009.  As of December 31, 2009, there were no Class D Units outstanding in the Partnership.

Distributions – Distributions, other than redemptions of Units, are made on a pro-rata basis at the sole discretion of Demeter.  No distributions have been made to date. Demeter does not intend to make any distributions of the Partnership’s profits.

Income Taxes – No provision for income taxes has been made in the accompanying financial statements, as limited partners are individually responsible for reporting income or loss based upon their respective share of the Partnership’s revenues and expenses for income tax purposes. The Partnership files U.S. federal and state tax returns.
 
- 77 -
Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 740-10-50-15, Income Taxes (which incorporates former Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Statement No. 109 and FASB Interpretation No. 48, Income Taxes), clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a Partnership’s financial statements, and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken.  The Partnership has concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions that would require recognition in the financial statements as of December 31, 2009.  If applicable, the Partnership recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in other expenses in the Statements of Operations.  Generally, 2007 through 2009 tax years remain subject to examination by U.S. federal and most state tax authorities.

 
Dissolution of the Partnership – The Partnership may be terminated upon any of the circumstances first to occur (i) receipt by Demeter of a notice setting forth an election to terminate and dissolve the Partnership by limited partners holding not less than a Majority of Units (as defined in the Limited Partnership Agreement), with or without cause (ii) the withdrawal, insolvency, bankruptcy, dissolution, or liquidation of Demeter (iii) the occurrence of an event which shall make it unlawful for the existence of the Partnership to be continued or  (iv) a determination by Demeter upon 60 days notice to the limited partners to terminate the Partnership.
 

 

 
- 78 -

 
 

 

 
Other Pronouncements – On July 1, 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 168, The FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, also known as FASB ASC 105-10, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“ASC 105-10” or the “Codification”).  ASC 105-10 established the exclusive authoritative reference for U.S. GAAP for use in financial statements except for Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules and interpretive releases, which are also authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants.  The Codification supersedes all existing non-SEC accounting and reporting standards.  The Codification became the single source of authoritative U.S. GAAP and is effective for financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009.
 

 
In September 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-12 addressing Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, Topic ASC 820.  ASU No. 2009-12 amended Subtopic 820-10, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures-Overall, for the fair value measurement of investments in certain entities that calculate net asset value per share or its equivalent.  The amendments in ASU No. 2009-12 permit, as a practical expedient, a reporting entity to measure the fair value of an investment that is within the scope of the amendments in ASU No. 2009-12 on the basis of the net asset value per share of the investment or its equivalent. Additionally, ASU No. 2009-12 requires disclosures by major category of investment about the attributes of the investments within the scope of the amendments, such as the nature of any
 

 
- 79 -

 
 

 

 
restrictions on redemptions, any unfunded commitments and the investment strategies of the investees.  The amendments in ASU No. 2009-12 are effective for interim and annual periods ending after December 15, 2009.  Management believes that the adoption of ASU No. 2009-12 did not have a material impact on the financial statements of the Partnership.
 

 
The Partnership adopted ASC 855-10, Subsequent Events (formerly, SFAS No. 165, Subsequent Events), which was issued in May 2009, and ASU No. 2010-09, Subsequent Events (Topic 855) Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements, which was issued in February 2010.  ASC 855-10 establishes general standards of accounting for and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued.  ASC 855-10 is effective for the interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009 and ASU No. 2010-09 is effective immediately.  Management has performed its evaluation of subsequent events and has determined that there were no subsequent events requiring adjustment or disclosure in the December 31, 2009 financial statements.
 

 
ASC 820-10-65, Fair Value Measurements (formerly, FASB Staff Position (“FSP”) SFAS No. 157-4, Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly), was issued in April 2009.  ASC 820-10-65 provides additional guidance for determining fair value and requires
 

 

 
- 80 -

 
 

 

 
new disclosures regarding the categories of fair value instruments, as well as the inputs and valuation techniques utilized to determine fair value and any changes to the inputs and valuation techniques during the period.  ASC 820-10-65 is effective for the interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009.  The adoption of ASC 820-10-65 did not have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements.
 

 
3.  Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06, Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements, which, among other things, amends ASC 820 to require entities to separately present purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in their reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements (i.e., to present such items on a gross basis rather than on a net basis), and which clarifies existing disclosure requirements provided by ASC 820 regarding the level of disaggregation and the inputs and valuation techniques used to measure fair value for measurements that fall within either Level 2 or Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.  ASU No. 2010-06 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements which are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years.  The Partnership is currently assessing the impact of adopting ASU No. 2010-06.
 

 

 
- 81 -

 
 

 

 
In June 2009, the FASB issued ASC 810-10, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities (formerly, SFAS 167, Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R) Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities).  ASC 810-10 contains new criteria for determining the primary beneficiary, and increases the frequency of required reassessments to determine whether a company is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity.  ASC 810-10 also contains a new requirement that any term, transaction, or arrangement that does not have a substantive effect on any entity’s status as a variable interest entity, a company’s power over a variable interest entity, or a company’s obligation to absorb losses or its right to receive benefits of an entity must be disregarded in applying Interpretation 46(R)’s provisions.  ASC 810-10 is applicable for annual periods beginning after November 15, 2009, and interim periods thereafter.  Effective February 25, 2010, the FASB has decided to indefinitely defer this application of ASC 810-10 for certain entities.  Management believes that the Partnership meets the criteria for the indefinite deferral of the application of ASC 810-10.
 

 
4.  Trading Companies
 
Investments in Affiliated Trading Companies – The Partnership’s assets identified as “Investments in Affiliated Trading Companies” reflected on the Statements of Financial Condition represent the Partnership’s pro rata share of each Trading Company’s net asset value.  The net assets of each Trading Company are equal to the total assets of the Trading Company (including, but not limited to
 

 

 
- 82 -

 
 

 

 
all cash and cash equivalents, accrued interest, and the fair value of all open Futures Interests contract positions and other assets) less all liabilities of the Trading Company (including, but not limited to brokerage commissions that would be payable upon the closing of open Futures Interests positions, management fees, incentive fees, and extraordinary expenses), determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
 

 
The commodity brokers for the Trading Companies except for Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Kaiser I, LLC (“Kaiser I, LLC”) (formerly, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Kaiser I, LLC) are Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated (“MS&Co.”) and Morgan Stanley & Co.

The strategy for each Trading Company is disclosed in Note 6. Trading Advisors to the Trading     Companies.

For all Trading Companies, Contributions and Withdrawals are permitted on a monthly basis.  As of December 31, 2009, there have been no suspended redemptions, “lock up” periods or gate provisions imposed before a withdrawal can be made by the Partnership.

 
Valuation – Futures Interests are open commitments until settlement date, at which time they are realized.  They are valued at fair value, generally on a daily basis, and the resulting net change in unrealized gains and losses is reflected in the change in unrealized appreciation (depreciation) on investments on open contracts from one period to the next on the Statements of Operations.  The fair value of exchange-traded futures, options and forwards contracts is determined by the various futures exchanges, and reflects the settlement price for each contract as of the close of business on the last business day of the reporting period from various exchanges.  The fair value of foreign currency forward contracts is extrapolated on a forward basis from the spot prices quoted as of approximately 3:00 P.M. (E.T.) of the last business day of the reporting period from various
 

 
- 86 -
 
 
 

 
exchanges.  The fair value of non-exchange-traded foreign currency option contracts is calculated
 
by applying an industry standard model application for options valuation of foreign currency options, using as input, the spot prices, interest rates, and option implied volatilities quoted as of approximately 3:00 P.M. (E.T.) on the last business day of the reporting period.

The Trading Companies may buy or write put and call options through listed exchanges and the over-the-counter market. The buyer of an option has the right to purchase (in the case of a call option) or sell (in the case of a put option) a specified quantity of a specific Futures Interest on the underlying asset at a specified price prior to or on a specified expiration date. The writer of an option is exposed to the risk of loss if the fair value of a Futures Interest on the underlying asset declines (in the case of a put option) or increases (in the case of a call option). The writer of an option can never profit by more than the premium paid by the buyer but can potentially lose an unlimited amount.

Premiums received/premiums paid from writing/purchasing options are recorded as liabilities/assets on the Trading Companies’ Statements of Financial Condition and are subsequently adjusted to fair values. The difference between the fair value of an option and the premiums received/premiums paid is treated as an unrealized gain or loss.
 

 
Revenue Recognition – Monthly, MS&Co. credits each Trading Company, except Kaiser I, LLC, with interest income on 100% of its average daily funds held at MS&Co. Assets deposited with MS&Co. as margin will be credited with interest income at a rate approximately equivalent to what
 

- 87 -
 
 
 
 

 
MS&Co. pays or charges other customers on such assets deposited as margin.  Assets not deposited
 
as margin with MS&Co. will be credited with interest income at the rate equal to the monthly average of the 4-week U.S. Treasury bill discount rate less 0.15% during such month but in no event less than zero.  For purposes of such interest payments, net assets do not include monies owed to each Trading Company on Futures Interests.

For Kaiser I, LLC, monthly, Newedge credits the Trading Company with interest income on 100% of its average daily funds held at Newedge. Assets deposited with Newedge as margin will be credited with interest income at a rate approximately equivalent to what Newedge pays or charges other customers on such assets deposited as margin.  Assets not deposited as margin with Newedge will be credited with interest income at the rate equal to the monthly average of the 4-week U.S. Treasury bill discount rate less 0.15% during such month but in no event less than zero.  For purposes of such interest payments, net assets do not include monies owed to the Trading Company on Futures Interests.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments – The fair value of each Trading Company’s assets and liabilities that qualify as financial instruments under ASC 825-10-50-10, Financial Instruments (formerly, SFAS No. 107, Disclosures About Fair Values of Financial Instruments), approximates the carrying amount presented in the Trading Company’s Statements of Financial Condition.




- 88 -

 
 

 

Foreign Currency Translation – The Trading Companies’ functional currency is the U.S. dollar; however, the Trading Companies may transact business in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.  Assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the rates in effect at the date of the Statements of Financial Condition.  Income and expense items denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar are translated into U.S. dollars at the rates in effect during the period. Gains and losses resulting from the translation to U.S. dollars are reported in income currently.

Brokerage, Clearing and Transaction Fees – Each Trading Company accrues and pays brokerage, clearing and transaction fees to MS&Co. (to Newedge in the case of Kaiser I, LLC).  Brokerage fees and transaction costs are paid as they are incurred on a half-turn basis at 100% of the rates MS&Co. (Newedge in the case of Kaiser I, LLC) charges retail commodity customers and parties that are not clearinghouse members.  In addition, the Trading Companies pay transactional and clearing fees as they are incurred.

Trading Company Administrative Fee – Each Trading Company pays Demeter a monthly fee to cover all administrative and operating expenses (the “Trading Company Administrative Fee”).  The monthly Trading Company Administrative Fee is equal to 1/12th of 0.35% (a 035% annual rate) of the beginning of the month net assets of each Trading Company.


- 89 -

 
 

 

5.  Related Party Transactions
The Partnership pays monthly administrative fees and General Partner fees to Demeter as described in Note 2.  The Partnership pays monthly Placement Agent fees to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC as described in Note 2.

The cash held by each Trading Company is on deposit with MS&Co. and MSIP in futures interest trading accounts to meet margin requirements as needed.  MS&Co. pays each Trading Company (except for Kaiser I, LLC) at each month end interest income as described in Note 4.  Each Trading Company pays MS&Co. brokerage fees and transactions costs as described in Note 4.  Each Trading Company pays Demeter a monthly Trading Company Administrative Fee as described in Note 4.

6.  Trading Advisors to the Trading Companies
Demeter retains certain commodity Trading Advisors to make all trading decisions for the Trading Companies.  The Trading Advisors and their strategies for each Trading Company as of December 31, 2009 are as follows:

Effective February 29, 2008, Demeter terminated the management agreement by and among Demeter, Morgan Stanley Managed Futures Cornerstone I, LLC, and Cornerstone Quantitative Investment Group Inc. (“Cornerstone”).  Consequently, Cornerstone ceased all Futures Interests trading on behalf of the Partnership as of February 29, 2008.
 

 
Compensation to the Trading Advisors by the Trading Companies consists of a management fee and an incentive fee as follows:
 

 

 
Management Fee – Each Trading Company pays its Trading Advisor a monthly management fee based on a percentage of Members’ Capital as described in the advisory agreement among each Trading Company, Demeter, and each Trading Advisor.
 

 
Incentive Fee – Each Trading Company pays each Trading Advisor a quarterly incentive fee equal to 20% of the trading profits earned by the applicable Trading Company.  Such fee is accrued on a monthly basis.
 

 
Trading profits represent the amount by which profits from Futures Interests trading exceed losses after management fees and administrative fees are deducted.  When a Trading Advisor experiences losses with respect to net assets as of the end of a calendar quarter, the Trading Advisor must recover such losses before that Trading Advisor is eligible for an incentive fee in the future.
 
- 91 -

 
 

 

 
7.  Financial Instruments of the Trading Companies
 

 
The Trading Advisors trade Futures Interests on behalf of the Trading Companies. Futures and forwards represent contracts for delayed delivery of an instrument at a specified date and price.  Risk arises from changes in the value of these contracts and the potential inability of counterparties to perform under the terms of the contracts.  There are numerous factors which may significantly influence the fair value of these contracts, including interest rate volatility.
 

 
The fair value of exchange-traded contracts is based on the settlement price quoted by the exchange on the day with respect to which fair value is being determined.  If an exchange-traded contract could not have been liquidated on such day due to the operation of daily limits or other rules of the exchange, the settlement price shall be the settlement price on the first subsequent day on which the contract could be liquidated.  The fair value of off-exchange-traded contracts is based on the fair value quoted by the counterparty.
 

 
The Trading Companies’ contracts are accounted for on a trade-date basis and marked to market on a daily basis. The Trading Companies account for their derivative investments as required by ASC 815-10-15, Derivatives and Hedging (formerly, SFAS No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities).  A derivative is defined as a financial instrument or other contract that has all three of the following characteristics:
 
(1)      One or more underlying notional amounts or payment provisions;
 

 
- 92 -

 
 

 

 
 
(2)
Requires no initial net investment or a smaller initial net investment than would be required relative to changes in market factors;
 
(3)      Terms require or permit net settlement.
 

 
Generally, derivatives include futures, forward, swaps or options contracts, and other financial instruments with similar characteristics such as caps, floors, and collars.
 

 
8.  Investment Risks
 
The Partnership’s investments in the Trading Companies expose the Partnership to various types of risks that are associated with Futures Interests trading and markets in which the Trading Companies invest.  The significant types of financial risks which the Trading Companies are exposed to are market risk, liquidity risk, and counterparty credit risk.
 

 
The rapid fluctuations in the market prices of Futures Interests in which the Trading Companies invest make an investment in the Partnership volatile.  If a Trading Advisor incorrectly predicts the direction of prices in the Futures Interests in which it invests, large losses may occur.
 

 
Illiquidity in the markets in which the Trading Companies invest may cause less favorable trade prices.  Although the Trading Advisors for each Trading Company generally will purchase and sell actively traded contracts where last trade price information and quoted prices are readily available, the prices at which a sale or purchase occur may differ from the prices expected because there may
 

 
- 93 -

 
 

 

 
be a delay between receiving a quote and executing a trade, particularly in circumstances where a market has limited trading volume and prices are often quoted for relatively limited quantities.
 

 
The credit risk on Futures Interests arises from the potential inability of counterparties to perform under the terms of the contracts.  Each Trading Company has credit risk because the commodity brokers will act as the futures commission merchants or the counterparties with respect to most of each Trading Company’s assets. Each Trading Company’s exposure to credit risk associated with counterparty nonperformance is typically limited to the cash deposits with, or other form of collateral held by, the counterparty.  
 

9.  Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures

 
As defined by ASC 820-10-55, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (formerly, SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements) fair value is the amount that would be recovered when an asset is sold or an amount paid to transfer a liability, in an ordinary transaction, between market participants at the measurement date (exit price).  Market price observability is impacted by a number of factors, including the types of investments, the characteristics specific to the investment, and the state of the market (including the existence and the transparency of transactions between market participants).  Investments with readily available actively quoted prices in an ordinary market will generally have a higher degree of market price observability and a lesser degree of judgment used in measuring fair value.
 

 
- 94 -

 
 

 

 
ASC 820-10-55 requires use of a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three levels: Level 1 — unadjusted quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities; Level 2 — inputs other than unadjusted quoted market prices that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly (including quoted prices for similar investments, interest rates, credit risk); and Level 3 — unobservable inputs for the asset or liability (including the Partnership’s own assumptions used in determining the fair value of investments).
 

 
In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy.  In such cases, an investment’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.  The Partnership’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment, and considers factors specific to the investment.
 

 
The Partnership adopted ASC 820-10-55 as of January 1, 2008.  The adoption of ASC 820-10-55 did not have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements, other than enhanced financial statements disclosures.
 

 
The following tables summarize the valuation of the Partnership’s investments according to the level of the above ASC 820-10-55 fair value hierarchy as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively:
