This website is issued and approved by Patronus Partners Ltd (“Patronus”) which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. The value of investments and any income generated from them may go down as well as up. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance and transactions in derivative products may involve significant leverage as a relatively small fluctuation in the price of the underlying asset can have a proportionately greater impact on the amount invested.
The information and opinions contained in this website are for background purposes only and do not purport to be full or complete. Nor does this website constitute investment advice. No representation, warranty, or undertaking, express or limited is given as to the accuracy or completeness of the information or opinions contained in this website by Patronus. As such, no reliance may be placed on the information and opinions contained in this website.
Patronus is not registered as an investment advisor with the SEC and therefore this website is neither directed at nor intended for US investors.
Patronus 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, the Firm currently offers advisory and managed futures services which means there are no investee companies for the firm to interact with or shareholder value to protect. Therefore, this Code does not currently apply to the firm’s activities as an investment manager.
Patronus 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.
Execution Venues 2017
Patronus Partners Limited (“Patronus”) is authorised and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
Patronus is required to make quantative and qualitative disclosures regarding our execution of transactions on behalf of our clients. Our quantative disclosures are made on our website in CSV format. This document gives our qualitative disclosures.
Patronus executes all transactions in accordance with our best execution policy. The importance we give to execution factors is set out in our best execution policy. We are an independent business and we have no financial linkages with any broker with whom we do business. During 2017 we did not receive any cash rebates or other soft dollar from our broker. During 2017, as was market practice and in accordance with the FCA rules pre-MiFID we did receive research from brokers that we execute with. Since the introduction of MiFID II the rules on research and other broker services have changed and we pay for all research out of our own resources.
MiFID II came into force on 3 January 2018. As acknowledged by the European Securities and Markets Authority (“ESMA”), prior to the introduction of MiFID II, there was not sufficient data readily available to market participants to enable them to fully analyse the effectiveness of their best execution policies in respect of 2017. We except to be able to publish more complete data in respect to 2018.
From 3 January 2018 we will periodically review and monitor our execution policy. As part of our monitoring we will review the venues where we execute orders and the entities who execute orders on behalf of our clients.
