Risk Warnings

The information presented on this website is not investment advice and does not take into consideration the investment objectives, financial situation or particular needs of any investor. Investing entails certain risks, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount invested. Prospective investors should seek their own financial, tax, accounting and legal advice in connection with any proposed investment.

Any investor who proposes to subscribe for an investment in Cirera Funds must be able to bear the risks involved and must meet the respective Fund’s suitability requirements. Some or all alternative investment programs may not be suitable for certain investors. No assurance can be given that investment objectives will be achieved.

Cirera’s investments may be speculative and involve a substantial degree of risk. The Funds may be leveraged and engage in other speculative investment practices that may increase the risk of investment loss. The fees and expenses typically earned by Cirera and its funds or affiliates may offset the Funds' trading profits. The instruments in which the Funds invests may involve complex tax structures and there may be delays in distributing important tax information. The Funds are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors with respect to its individual investments. Cirera is not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds. Cirera is subject to various other risk factors and conflicts of interest.

Inherent in any investment is the potential for loss. 

Cirera’s portfolio managers have had positive trading results over certain periods in the past while employed at prior firms. However, prospective investors must consider the uncertain significance of past performance in determining whether or not to invest in funds offered by Cirera. Investors should not substantially rely on the past record of Cirera’s portfolio managers as a prediction of future performance. Investors should not assume that trading decisions made by Cirera in the future will be profitable. Because some investors may have different fee arrangements and depending on the timing of a specific investment, net performance for an individual investor may vary from the net performance as stated herein.

Commitment to the UK Stewardship Code

UK Stewardship Code COBS 2.2.3R of the FCA’s Conduct of Business Sourcebook requires Cirera Capital Limited (“Cirera”, or the “Firm”) to disclose clearly on its website the nature of its commitment to the Financial Reporting Council’s Stewardship Code (the “Code”).

The Code was first published by the FRC in July 2010, then updated in September 2012, and then subsequently the FRC published a new UK Stewardship Code 2020 which took effect from the 1 January 2021. The code is a voluntary code and sets out a number of principles aiming to enhance engagement between institutional investors (including both fund managers and asset owners) and companies.

The FRC defines ‘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.’

 

The twelve principles of the 2020 Code for asset managers are:

Purpose and governance

1.         Signatories’ purpose, investment beliefs, strategy, and culture enable stewardship that creates long term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society.

2.         Signatories’ governance, resources and incentives support stewardship

3.         Signatories manage conflicts of interest to put the best interests of clients and beneficiaries first.

4.         Signatories identify and respond to market-wide and systemic risks to promote a well- functioning financial system.

5.         Signatories review their policies, assure their processes and assess the effectiveness of their activities

Investment approach

6.         Signatories take account of client and beneficiary needs and communicate the activities and outcomes of their stewardship and investment to them.

7.         Signatories systematically integrate stewardship and investment, including material environmental, social and governance issues, and climate change, to fulfil their responsibilities.

8.         Signatories monitor and hold to account managers and/or service providers.

Engagement

9.         Signatories engage with issuers to maintain or enhance the value of assets.

10.       Signatories, where necessary, participate in collaborative engagement to influence issuers.

11.       Signatories, where necessary, escalate stewardship activities to influence issuers.

Exercising rights and responsibilities

12.       Signatories actively exercise their rights and responsibilities.

 

Cirera invests in a variety of asset classes in a variety of jurisdictions globally and exposure to UK listed companies is chiefly achieved through investment in (non-voting) financial derivative positions. Since the Firm’s strategy does not involve investing in the shares of companies, the Code has a limited application to its investment activities.

The Firm has a conflicts of interest policy in place to identify the risk of any conflicts of interest arising with or between its clients and has in place procedures to deal with any conflicts that may arise. All policies and procedures are regularly reviewed and updated. There are currently no circumstances and manner in which Cirera will vote on behalf of clients.

​​

While the Cirera generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, the Firm does not consider it appropriate to commit to adhering to the Code at this time. If the Firm’s investment strategy changes such the provisions of the Code become relevant, the Firm will review and if necessary, amend this disclosure accordingly.
