UK Stewardship Code
As a firm authorised and regulated by the FCA, Optimum Complexity Ltd is required to either disclose its compliance with or explain its non-compliance with the principles set out in the UK Financial Reporting Council’s Stewardship Code (the “Stewardship Code”).
The Code is a voluntary code and sets out a number of principles relating to engagement by investors with UK equity issuers. Investors that commit to the Code can either comply with it in full or choose not to comply with aspects of the Code, in which case they are required to explain their non compliance.
Optimum manages assets across a number of discretionary strategies, however the investment processes do not involve significant engagement with underlying investee companies in any of these strategies.
While the Firm generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, the Firm has chosen not to commit to the Code
