Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future returns. Any information you receive from XY Capital Europe is believed to be reliable. Nevertheless, neither XY Capital Europe nor its agents are liable for any deficiencies in the accuracy, completeness, availability or timeliness of such information. The information provided on this website does not necessarily reflect the most up to date or current information available on the product or service. The information contained herein is provided without any warranty of any kind. The performance and other information and opinions expressed in the following materials are provided without any warranty of any kind.
Opinions expressed whether in general or in both on the performance of the individual funds and in a wider economic context represent the views of the contributor at the time of preparation. Financial information contained on the website have not been audited. XY Capital Europe furthermore disclaims any liability for any loss, damage, costs or expenses (including direct, indirect, special and consequential) howsoever arising which any person may suffer or incur as either a direct or consequential a result of viewing or utilising any information included in this website.
The value of investments may fall as well as rise and you may not get back your original investment. Past performance should not be viewed as a guide to future performance. Investment carries the risk of potential total loss of capital. Where an investment involves a foreign currency, it may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. These changes to exchange rates may also cause the value of an underlying investment to go down as well as up. The annual management fee is taken from the capital of the funds and may constrain or erode capital. Investments or investment services referred to in this website may not be suitable for all investors and we therefore recommend that you seek advice from your investment adviser before making an investment.
If you wish to invest in a specific investment or product managed by XY Capital Europe, you should refer to the risk warnings in the relevant prospectus for that product or investment. Information and details of such investments, managers or their products or laws or circumstances, may change, and it is the requirement of any investor or those making or considering to make such investments that they conduct due diligence on any and all investments made or considered. All investments should be made with discretionary capital set aside strictly for speculative purposes.
Stewardship Code (the “Code”)
Under Rule 2.2.3R of the FCA’s Conduct of Business Sourcebook (“COBS”), XY Capital Europe is required to disclose whether or not it commits to the UK Financial Reporting Council’s Code. The Code is a voluntary code and sets out a number of principles relating to engagement by investors with UK equity issuers. XY Capital Europe pursues a strategy that employs a systematic approach to invest securities, including in listed equities. XY Capital Europe does not believe in meeting with company management in order to ensure all companies are assessed using a uniform dataset at a single point in time. This assessment – based on hard, current evidence – is repeated every month. Consequently, while XY Capital Europe generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, the Code is relevant only to limited aspects of XY Capital Europe ‘s trading and XY Capital Europe has chosen not to commit to it.
Shareholder Rights Directive Statement
XY Capital Europe is making this statement in Compliance with Rule 2.2B.5R of COBS.
COBS requires every FCA authorised asset manager that invests in listed equities to: (1) develop and publicly disclose on its website, a copy of its engagement policy which includes the content specified in the amended EU Shareholder Rights Directive (Directive 2007/36/EC); and (2) publicly disclose on an annual basis how its engagement policy has been implemented, including a general description of its voting behaviour, an explanation of its most significant votes and details of its use of the services of proxy advisors, or, in either case, to publicly disclose a clear and reasoned explanation of why it has chosen not to comply with those requirements
XY Capital Europe has considered carefully whether it wishes to adopt an engagement policy and to make the disclosures described above and has, for the time being, decided not to do so. For the portion of investments that is more focused on equities, the relevant exposure is often obtained through swap positions (particularly in relation to European issuers). Where equities exposures are held via a swap position, the opportunities for engagement are more limited, when compared with shareholdings (as for example, a swap holder is not entitled to vote at general meetings of the issuer). Where XY Capital Europe does invest in shares, it does not typically vote proxies. Therefore, while XY Capital Europe supports the general principles of shareholder engagement, it does not at this time (for the reasons set out above) consider it appropriate to adopt an engagement policy or make the relevant public disclosures. XY Capital Europe will keep its position under review and will update this section of its website accordingly, if there is a change in its approach.
