W I T N E S S E T H :
WHEREAS, CMF is the general partner of Smith Barney Warrington Fund L.P., a limited partnership organized for the purpose of speculative trading of commodity interests, including futures contracts, options, swaps and forward contracts on U.S. and non-U.S. markets with the objective of achieving substantial capital appreciation; and
WHEREAS, the Limited Partnership Agreement establishing the Partnership (the “Limited Partnership Agreement”) permits CMF to delegate to one or more commodity trading advisors CMF’s authority to make trading decisions for the Partnership; and
WHEREAS, the Advisor is registered as a commodity trading advisor with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) and is a member of the National Futures Association (“NFA”); and
WHEREAS, CMF is registered as a commodity pool operator with the CFTC and is a member of the NFA; and
WHEREAS, CMF, the Partnership and the Advisor wish to enter into this Agreement in order to set forth the terms and conditions upon which the Advisor will render and implement advisory services in connection with the conduct by the Partnership of its commodity trading activities during the term of this Agreement;
NOW, THEREFORE, the parties agree as follows:
1. DUTIES OF THE ADVISOR. (a) Upon the commencement of trading operations by the Partnership and for the period and on the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Advisor shall have sole authority and responsibility, as one of the Partnership’s agents and attorneys-in-fact, for directing the investment and reinvestment of the assets and funds of the Partnership allocated to it from time to time by the General Partner in commodity interests, including commodity futures contracts, options and forward contracts. The Advisor may also engage in swaps transactions and other derivative transactions on behalf of the Partnership with the prior approval of CMF. All such trading on behalf of the Partnership shall be in accordance with the trading strategies and trading policies set forth in the Partnership’s Private Placement Offering Memorandum and Disclosure Document to be dated on or about December 31, 2005, as supplemented (the “Memorandum”), and as such trading policies may be changed from time to time upon receipt by the Advisor of prior written notice of such change and pursuant to the trading strategy selected by CMF to be utilized by the Advisor in managing the Partnership’s assets. CMF has initially selected the Advisor’s Core Trading Program (the “Program”) to manage the Partnership’s assets allocated to it. Any open positions or other investments at the time of receipt of such notice of a change in trading policy shall not be
deemed to violate the changed policy and shall be closed or sold in the ordinary course of trading. The Advisor may not deviate from the trading policies set forth in the Memorandum without the prior written consent of the Partnership given by CMF. The Advisor makes no representation or warranty that the trading to be directed by it for the Partnership will be profitable or will not incur losses.
(b) CMF acknowledges receipt of the Advisor’s Disclosure Document dated August 1, 2005 as filed with the NFA. All trades made by the Advisor for the account of the Partnership shall be made through such commodity broker or brokers as CMF shall direct, and the Advisor shall have no authority or responsibility for selecting or supervising any such broker in connection with the execution, clearance or confirmation of transactions for the Partnership or for the negotiation of brokerage rates charged therefor. However, the Advisor, with the prior written permission (by either original or fax copy) of CMF, may direct any and all trades in commodity futures and options to a futures commission merchant or independent floor broker it chooses for execution with instructions to give-up the trades to the broker designated by CMF, provided that the futures commission merchant or independent floor broker and any give-up or floor brokerage fees are approved in advance by CMF. All give-up or similar fees relating to the foregoing shall be paid by the Partnership after all parties have executed the relevant give-up agreements (by either original or fax copy).
