8.May an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) invest in Ellington Financial?
 IRAs may invest in Ellington Financial. However, as a result of our indebtedness with respect to our assets, we expect that a significant portion of the income that we generate will be considered unrelated business taxable income (“UBTI”) for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Holders that that are generally exempt from federal and/or state income taxation, such as IRAs and tax-exempt organizations, may nevertheless be subject to “unrelated business income tax” on their allocable share of any UBTI that we generate. Tax-exempt holders, including IRAs, are strongly urged to consult their tax advisors regarding the tax consequences of owning our shares.
