Legal and regulatory statements

Introduction

FQS Capital Partners L.P is registered with the U.S Securities Exchange Commission as an Investment Adviser. FQS Capital LLP is authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") and is therefore subject to the FCA's Prudential Sourcebook for Banks, Building Societies and Investment Firms ("BIPRU"). 

Confidentiality

Information is generally viewed as proprietary if sharing that information with the public would undermine a competitive position. Proprietary information may include information on products or systems that, if shared with competitors, would render the Company's investments therein less valuable. Further, the Company must regard information as confidential if there are obligations to customers or other counterparty relationships binding the Company to confidentiality. In the event that any such information is omitted, the Company shall disclose such and explain the grounds why it has not been disclosed.

Background of FQS Capital Partners L.P & FQS Capital Partners LLP ("FQS")

FQS is an independent fund of hedge fund manager with offices in the US and the UK. FQS looks to offer bespoke investment management solutions and advisory to clients, applying amongst other things its bespoke quantitative technologies.

FQS Capital Partners LLP – Stewardship Code

FQS Capital Partners LLP fully supports the UK Stewardship Code (“The Code”) which sets out good practice for institutional investors (and investment managers) when engaging with the UK listed companies in which they invest, and is intended to enhance this relationship.

However, as an investment manager that manages investments in hedge funds there are no investee companies for the firm to interact with or shareholder value to protect. Therefore, The Code does not currently apply to the firm’s activities as an investment manager.

FQS Capital Partners LLP will keep the position under review and should it consider expanding its range of operations it will determine whether the Code is likely to become applicable to its investment management activities.
