Regulatory Information

Market Soundings

The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), which became effective on 3 July 2016, introduced new market soundings (or “pre-marketing”) safe harbours to the offence of unlawfully disclosing inside information. Market soundings communication of information, prior to the announcement of a transaction, in order to gauge the interest of potential investors in a possible transaction and the conditions relating to it such as its potential size or pricing, to one or more potential investors.

Pillar III Disclosures

As part of the Capital Requirements Directive, introduced by the European Union in 2007, regulated firms have a requirement to publish a document describing the risks they face in their normal course of business, alongside a description of the capital held to support the business.

Pillar 3 complements the minimum capital requirements (Pillar 1) and the supervisory review process (Pillar 2), and its aim is to encourage market discipline by developing a set of disclosure requirements. These allow market participants to assess key pieces of information on a firm’s capital, risk exposures and risk assessment processes. The third pillar greatly increases transparency and the disclosures firms must make, and is designed to allow the market and investors to have a better understanding of the overall firm risk.

Stewardship Code

Under Rule 2.2.3R of the FCA’s Conduct of Business Sourcebook, Chenavari Credit Partners LLP (“Chenavari”) is required to include on this website a disclosure about the nature of its commitment to the UK Financial Reporting Council’s UK Stewardship Code (the “Code”) or, where it does not commit to the Code, its alternative investment strategy. The Code is a voluntary code published in July 2010 and updated in September 2012, and sets out a number of principles relating to engagement by investors with UK equity issuer to exercise their stewardship responsibilities. The Code is applied on a “comply or explain” basis.

Chenavari pursues a number of different investment strategies, including in particular Corporate Credit and Asset Back Securities. Some of the investment strategies have a very limited exposure to equities for which there is not any engagement with issuers in which the funds invest and their management. As a consequence the Code is not perceived as relevant to Chenavari’s trading and therefore Chenavari has chosen not to commit to the Code. We are considering Stewardship issues on a case-by-case basis when and if relevant, making bespoke decisions in the best interests of investors. Should an investment strategy change in such a manner that the provisions of the Code become relevant, Chenavari will reconsider its position under the Code.
