Stewardship code – Disclosure Statement

Under Rule 2.2.3R of the FCA's Conduct of Business Sourcebook regulated firms that manage investments for institutional clients are required to disclose by a statement on their website the nature of their commitment to The Stewardship Code ("the Code").

The Code, which has been published by the Financial Reporting Council, sets out principles for institutional investors in relation to their engagement with the companies in which they have invested. The FCA's regulations oblige any firm subject to the rules to publicly disclose the nature of its commitment to the Code, or where it does not commit to the Code, its alternative approach.

Walker Crips Investment Management’s investment strategy is, in general, such that the firm does not consider it to be appropriate for it to engage directly with companies in which it invests or to actively vote on resolutions at meetings of shareholders. The basis on which the firm manages investments for institutional clients is such that engagement would not be beneficial for those clients and the firm does not consider that engagement with management is expected by our institutional clients.

It is important to remember that the value of investments can go down as well as up and it is possible to get back less than you invested, especially in the early years. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns and interest rates and dividends are variable and cannot be guaranteed in the future. Any tax treatment mentioned is based on personal circumstances and current legislation which is subject to change. In the event of a client having a complaint about our services we will do our best to resolve that complaint promptly and to the client's satisfaction. However if we are unable to do so, the client may have the right to complain to the Financial Ombudsman Service. Further information can be found on the Financial Ombudsman Services's Website at www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk.
