The Firm is authorised and regulated under UK legislation by the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”).

2.1 Approach to Remuneration

The Firm does not link remuneration directly to the performance of the Firm, rather, the Firm’s performance may be a factor in determining variable remuneration. The Firm also considers its non-financial criteria when assessing remuneration.

The Firm does not operate a dedicated discretionary bonus scheme, however should the Firm decide to make additional payments these are calculated by reference to the Firm’s net operating profit, where the underlying revenue is not subject to recovery or downward adjustment. The Firm is not Authorised to take market or trading risks, therefore Employees are unable to be rewarded by taking market or trading risks (on behalf of the Firm).

When determining the variable remuneration paid to any employee, the Firm considers a number of factors covering the firm as a whole and the individual employees as appropriate. The Firm’s overall profitability, the absolute and relative performance of an employee and (as applicable) their business unit, the employee’s conduct and adherence to the Firm’s values, any disciplinary action taken against the employee and the results of the employee’s performance review will be taken into account.

The discretion held by the Board of the Firm ensures that the Firm is able to retain employees in executive positions who are vital to the Firm’s strategic development. The Firm has no obligation to pay variable remuneration other than out of realised profits which are not subject to later reduction (after subtracting all expenses relating to running the business) to allow for a fully flexible policy. Accordingly, the Firm’s total variable remuneration does not limit its ability to strengthen its capital base.

2.4 Remuneration Objectives

The Firm’s financial incentives are designed to attract and retain employees with the appropriate skills, knowledge and expertise to enable the Firm to deliver its long-term strategic goals, widen its client base and expand into similar areas of business as and when the appropriate opportunities arise, in each case in a manner which is consistent with and which promotes effective risk management and does not expose the Firm to excessive risk.

2.5 Remuneration Governance

The Firm has in place a Remuneration Policy which is approved by the Board at least annually.

The Firm does not meet the criteria to form a remuneration committee under SYSC 19G. In view of the nature and size of the Firm, the Board does not believe it is proportionate to have a Remuneration Committee but will periodically monitor the remuneration practices of the Firm to determine if the implementation of such a committee would enhance its practices. The Board has oversight of the Firm’s remuneration policies and refers to its remuneration Terms of Reference and the MIFIDPRU remuneration code. Furthermore, the Firm ensures that the Firm’s standards, fairness, compliance objectives, corporate governance and maintaining a sound capital base are not compromised by its remuneration incentives. The Firm has used external consultants to assist in the development of its remuneration policies and practices.

2.6 Total Remuneration

Total Remuneration: £48,000

Of which:

Fixed Remuneration: £0

Variable Remuneration: £48,000

A View from the Bridge - May 2024

The Bank of England were not expected to move policy rates at today’s meeting so the focus for markets was on the updated quarterly forecasts for growth and inflation along with the accompanying minutes of the two-day policy meeting.
