COMMITMENT TO THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE - Under Rule 2.2.3R of the Financial Conduct Authority's (“FCA”) Conduct of Business Sourcebook, Squarepoint Capital LLP (“Squarepoint UK LLP” 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 (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.
Squarepoint UK LLP invests in a broad range of asset classes on a predominantly systematic basis in a variety of jurisdictions globally and exposure to UK-listed issuers is, as a result, likely to be relatively limited in terms of overall exposure at any given point. Therefore, whilst Squarepoint UK LLP generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, the nature of its investment strategy would mean that it is not practical for it to formally engage with investee companies on a voluntary basis in any particular jurisdiction through the exercise of its voting rights. The Firm has therefore chosen not to commit to the Code at this time.
Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD II)
SRD II aims to promote effective stewardship and long term investment decision making. It sets requirements in several areas, including transparency of engagement policies and investment strategies across the institutional investment community.
Under Rule 2.2B.5R of the Financial Conduct Authority's (“FCA”) Conduct of Business Sourcebook, and with respect to investment activity in shares admitted to trading on regulated markets in the EEA, or on comparable regulated markets outside the EEA, Squarepoint Capital LLP “Squarepoint UK LLP” or “the Firm”) is required to either
1. develop and publicly disclose an “Engagement Policy” providing details of how the Firms investment strategies and shareholder engagement activities, and their implementation, contribute towards the medium and long term performance of the assets of the fund; or
2. publicly disclose a clear and reasoned explanation of why it has chosen not to comply with any of the requirements under this rule
As Squarepoint UK LLP has a quantitative and systematic trading approach, the nature of its investment strategy would mean that it is not practical for it to formally engage with investee companies and carry out shareholder engagement activities. The Firm has therefore chosen not to implement an Engagement Policy at this time
