UK Stewardship Code Disclosures

SouthernSun Asset Management (UK) Ltd. (the “Firm”) is a UK domiciled limited company that is authorized by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to provide investment management services to its parent, SouthernSun Asset Management LLC (“SouthernSun US”).  SouthernSun UK’s business is managed and governed by its Board of Directors, which is comprised of Michael Cook (CEO/CIO of SouthernSun US) and William Halliday (COO of SouthernSun US).  Asher Ailey (CCO of SouthernSun US) is responsible for oversight of SouthernSun UK’s compliance functions.

SouthernSun UK is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SouthernSun US.

Under Rule 2.2.3R of the FCA’s Conduct of Business Sourcebook, the Firm is required to include on this website a disclosure 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 sets out a number of principles relating to engagement by investors with UK equity issuers, as follows:

The seven principles of the Code are that institutional investors should:

    1.  Publicly disclose their policy on how they will discharge their stewardship responsibilities;
    2.  Have and publicly disclose a robust policy on managing conflicts of interest in relation to stewardship;
    3.  Monitor their investee companies;
    4.  Establish clear guidelines on when and how they will escalate their activities;
    5.  Be willing to act collectively with other investors where appropriate;
    6.  Have a clear policy on voting and disclosure of voting activity; and
    7.  Report periodically on their stewardship and voting activities.

The Firm does not direct trading in any UK listed securities. Consequently, while the Firm supports the general objectives that underlie the Code, the provisions of the Code are not relevant to the activities currently undertaken by the Firm.  If the Firm’s activities change in such a manner that the provisions of the Code become relevant, the Firm will amend this disclosure accordingly.

For further information on the Firm’s approach, please contact Asher Ailey at aailey@southernsunam.com or (901) 341-2700.
