The Financial Ombudsman Service
The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) is an agency for arbitrating on unresolved complaints between regulated firms and their clients. Full details can be found on its website: www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk
Shareholder Rights Directive II
We are required by the Revised Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II) to explain whether or not we have an engagement policy in relation to the companies we invest in, where the companies’ shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market. As the proportion of shares we hold in investee companies is much lower than those held by large institutional investors, we are not able to engage with investee companies to the extent envisaged by SRD II. Therefore, we do not have a formal engagement policy.
