UK Stewardship Code

Conduct of Business Sourcebook rule 2.2.3R, requires the Investment Manager (“firm”) to include a disclosure on its website stating the nature of its commitment to the UK Stewardship Code (“the Code”) issued by the Financial Reporting Council. If the firm does not commit to the Code, it must state in general terms its alternative investment strategy. The code sets out various principles relating to the level of engagement by investors with UK equity investors. Investors may either comply with the Code or choose not to comply with certain aspects of the Code in such case an explanation of non-compliance is required.

The Firm’s alternative investment strategy is Multi-Strategy. This means that the firm may invest in Global equities, including UK equities. Therefore the Code is applicable to some aspects of the firm‘s trading. Although the firm supports the Code’s objectives, Firm has decided not to commit to the principles of the code. The firm invests in various asset classes and jurisdictions on a global basis. The current policy of the firm in engaging with issuers and their management is determined on a global basis. Thereby the firm takes a consistent approach to engaging with the issuers and their management in all the jurisdictions the firm invests in. Hence, it is not deemed appropriate to comply with any voluntary codes of practice in any individual jurisdiction.

Remuneration Code Disclosure

Governance

The Investment Manager’s Board is responsible for setting The Investment Manager’s policy on remuneration. The Investment Manager’s Remuneration Policy will be reviewed, at least annually, by the Board to ensure that it remains consistent with the Remuneration Code Principles and the Manager’s objectives. The Board will use all information available to it in order to carry out its responsibilities under the Remuneration Code including information on risk and financial performance. In addition as part of The Investment Manager’s regulatory monitoring, this will include a review of the implementation of the policy by the Investment Manager.

This remuneration disclosure is made under the Basel Pillar 3 framework. Our non-remuneration Pillar 3 disclosures can be found in our annual report and accounts.

The purpose of the Remuneration Code is to ensure that firms establish, implement, and maintain remuneration policies, procedures and practices that are consistent with, and promote, sound and effective risk management.

The Remuneration Code applies to ’Remuneration Code Staff’ (’Code Staff’). This includes senior management, risk takers, staff engaged in control functions and any employee receiving total remuneration that takes them into the same remuneration bracket as senior management and risk takers, whose professional activities have a material impact on the firm’s risk profile.

Link between pay and performance

The LLP considers the Remuneration Code as set out by the FCA in policy statement (PS10/21), consultation paper (CP10/27) and within the FCA Handbook (BIPRU11.5). The LLP has adopted its own remuneration code policy consistent with its Tier 4 level and Code Staff have been informed of this policy. Remuneration is linked to both financial and non-financial performance and bonuses over a certain threshold are subject to a linked deferral scheme. Where remuneration is performance-related then in addition to the performance of the Investment Manager will also take into account the performance of the business unit concerned and the overall results of the firm. Performance assessment will not relate solely to financial criteria but will also include compliance with regulatory obligations and adherence to effective risk management. In keeping with the Investment Managers long-term objectives, the assessment of performance will take into account longer-term performance and payment of any such performance related bonuses may need to be spread over more than one year to take account of the firms business cycle.

Quantitative remuneration information

The Investment Manager is of the opinion that, in accordance with BIPRU 11.5.20R, it is not appropriate to disclose aggregate information on remuneration in respect of its Code Staff.
