The UK Stewardship Code 2020 (the “Code”) took effect on 1 January 2020 and sets high expectations of asset managers investing money on behalf of its investors. This latest edition of the Code places a greater focus on environmental, social and corporate governance matters defining stewardship as the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.
Conduct of Business Sourcebook rule 2.2.3R, requires Park Square to include a disclosure on its website stating the nature of its commitment to the Code. If the Firm does not commit to the Code, it must state in general terms its alternative investment strategy.
Park Square advises and manages funds which invest in various types of European and US debt securities. Park Square’s strategy does not involve any investment in UK listed companies, and Park Square does not anticipate making any such investments in the future.
For this reason, whilst Park Square supports the Code’s objectives and seeks to align its approach with the broad aims of the Code where applicable, it has decided not to commit to the full principles of the Code. As part of its strategy Park Square does not anticipate actively engaging on a regular basis with management of investee companies and were there ever to be concerns over governance which might threaten the value of such investments Park Square would consider exercising its voting power to oppose the board and/or disposing of its investment.
Should Park Square’s investment strategy change, there will be a review of its commitment to the Code at that time and appropriate disclosures will be made.
