COMMITMENT TO THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE 2020
Under Rule 2.2.3R of the Financial Conduct Authority's ("FCA") Conduct of Business Sourcebook, Blantyre Capital Limited ("Blantyre" or "the Firm"), to the extent it is managing investments for a professional client (as defined by the FCA), is required to include a disclosure about the nature of its commitment to the UK Financial Reporting Council's Stewardship Code 2020 (the "Code"), or, where it does not commit to the Code, explain its considered choice based on the Firm’s investment approach. The Code is a voluntary code and sets out a number of principles relating to engagement by investors in UK listed companies.
Blantyre invests in a variety of asset classes in a variety of jurisdictions and exposure to UK- listed companies is relatively limited. Therefore, whilst Blantyre generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, the nature of its investment strategy do not allow it to formally engage with investee companies through voting rights. The Firm has therefore chosen not to commit to the Code at this time.
