Item 4.01.Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

(a)        On December 6, 2017, Kenmar Preferred Investments, LLC (the “Managing Owner”), the managing owner of World Monitor Trust III – Series J (the “Registrant”), dismissed Arthur F. Bell, Jr. & Associates, L.L.C. (merged with Cohen & Company) (“Arthur Bell”) as the registered public accounting firm for the Registrant.

The audit report of Arthur Bell on the Registrant’s financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the period commencing with Arthur Bell’s engagement by the Registrant on April 11, 2016 through the date of this Form 8-K, there were no disagreements between the Registrant and Arthur Bell on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Arthur Bell, would have caused it to make a reference to the subject matter thereof in its report on the financial statements of the Registrant for such period. During such period, there were no “reportable events” (as defined in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(v)).

The Managing Owner, on behalf of the Registrant, has provided Arthur Bell with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and has requested that Arthur Bell furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made by the Registrant set forth above. A copy of Arthur Bell’s letter dated December 8, 2017 is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

(b)        On November 28, 2017, the Managing Owner, on behalf of the Registrant, approved the engagement of AJSH & Co. (“AJSH”) as the independent registered public accounting firm for the Registrant. During the Registrant’s two most recent fiscal years (ending December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015) and the interim period prior to engaging AJSH, neither the Registrant, the Managing Owner, nor anyone on their behalf, consulted AJSH, on behalf of the Registrant, regarding the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction (either completed or proposed), the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Registrant’s financial statements, or any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement,” as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the instructions thereto, or a “reportable event,” as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
