Och-Ziff is Authorized and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority
This Site is issued or approved by Och-Ziff Management Europe Limited (“OZMEL”) which is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”). OZMEL, whose registered office is at 40 Argyll Street, London W1F 7EB, United Kingdom, appears in the FCA's Register (Registration No. 190662). OZMEL is registered as a Private Limited Company in England and Wales (Company Number 03676366) and its VAT registration number is 749344894.
OZMEL is subject to the FCA rules and guidance, details of which can be found on the FCA's website at www.fca.org.uk. The FCA is one of the two principal regulators of the financial services industry in the UK and is located at 25 The North Colonnade, Canary Wharf, London E14 5HS, United Kingdom.
Commitment to the UK Stewardship Code
Under Rule 2.2.3R of the FCA's Conduct of Business Sourcebook, OZMEL is required to disclose in an accessible form a statement about the nature of its commitment to the UK Financial Reporting Council's Stewardship Code (the “Code”) or, where it does not commit to the Code, its alternative investment strategy. 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.
OZMEL pursues a multi-strategy approach to investing that involves it trading in global equities, including some UK equities. The Code is therefore relevant to some aspects of OZMEL's trading. While OZMEL generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, OZMEL has chosen not to commit to the Code. OZMEL invests in a variety of asset classes and in a variety of jurisdictions globally. OZMEL's policies in relation to engagement with issuers and their management are determined globally on groupwide basis. The group takes a global approach to engagement with issuers and their management in all of the jurisdictions in which it trades and, consequently, OZMEL does not consider it appropriate to commit to any particular voluntary code of practice relating to any individual jurisdiction.
