UK Stewardship Code Disclosure Statement
Under COBS 2.2 of the FCA Handbook, all FCA authorised firms are required to make a public disclosure in relation to the nature of their commitment to the above Code ("the Code") which was published by the Financial Reporting Council ("FRC") in July 2010.
The Code aims to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and the companies they invest in with the intention of improving long term returns for shareholders and the efficient exercise of governance responsibilities. The FRC recognises that not all parts of the Code will be relevant to all institutional investors and that smaller institutions may judge some of the principles and guidance to be disproportionate. Firms may either comply with the Code or choose not to comply with certain aspects of the Code; in the latter case an explanation of non-compliance is required. If the firm does not commit to the Code, it must state in general terms its alternative investment strategy.
Ebullio Capital Management LLP’s (“Ebullio") supports the principles of the Code, however due to chosen investment strategy, engagement does not occur and Ebullio does not consider that its clients expect such engagement. Should there be any material changes to the investment strategy of the Firm, which would render the Code relevant, this disclosure will be revised.
All of the investments or services referred to on this Website are not available to the general public.

Pillar 3 Disclosure
The Pillar 3 rules in BIPRU 11 set out the need for firms to have a formal disclosure policy. In accordance with the rules of the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) Ebullio Capital Management(the “Firm”) will disclose the information set out in BIPRU 11 (the Pillar 3 rule) on at least an annual basis.
The Firm may omit information it deems as immaterial, in accordance with the rules. Materiality is based on the criterion that the omission or misstatement of any information would be likely to change or influence the decision of a reader relying on that information. Accordingly where the Firm has considered an item to be immaterial it has not been disclosed.
In addition, if the required information is deemed to be proprietary or confidential then the Firm may take the decision to exclude it from the disclosure. In the Firm's view, proprietary information is that which, if it were shared, would undermine its competitive position. Information is considered to be confidential where there are obligations binding the Firm to confidentiality with our customers, suppliers or counterparties. Where information is omitted for either of these reasons this is stated in the relevant section of the disclosure, along with the jurisdiction.
The Firm is authorised and regulated by the FCA and as such is subject to minimum regulatory capital requirements. The Firm is categorised by the FCA, for capital purposes, as a BIPRU firm. It is an investment management firm and has no trading book exposures. The Firm is not required to prepare consolidated reporting for prudential purposes.
The FCA’s current prudential regime can be split into three “pillars”:
Pillar 1 – prescribes the minimum capital requirements that authorised firms need to hold. This is the higher of €50k; quarter of the firms annual adjusted expenditure (the Fixed Overheads Requirement); or the sum of the firm’s prescribed Credit risk + Market risk.
Pillar 2 – requires firms to analyse the risks to the business and then consider whether the risks are mitigated to an appropriate standard. If the firm feels that the risks are not adequately mitigated then they should allocate capital against those risks. Stress and scenario tests are conducted to ensure that the processes, strategies and systems are comprehensive and robust and that the allocation of capital is sufficient.
Pillar 3 - requires firms to develop a set of disclosures which will allow market participants to assess key information about the Firm’s underlying risks, risk management controls and capital position.
The Fixed Overheads Requirement determines the Firm’s Capital Resources Requirement.
The Firm is a Limited Liability Partnership and its capital arrangements are established in its Partnership deed. Its capital is summarised as follows:
Members’ capital and other reserves 3,266
The main features of the Firm’s Capital Resources Requirement are as follows:
Tier 1 capital less innovative tier 1 capital
Total tier 2, innovative tier 1 and tier 3 capital
Deductions from tier 1 and tier 2 capital
Total capital resources, net of deductions
Due to the size, nature, scale and complexity of the Firm, there is no independent risk management function. The Partners of the Firm determine the business strategy and risk appetite along with the risk management policies and procedures. Risks to the Firm are identified and considered and the Firm’s resultant exposure is assessed after the application of both management and mitigation of these risks. Furthermore the Firm then conduct a series of stress tests and scenario analyses on these risks to determine the effect they would have on the firm.
If necessary the Firm would allocate extra capital to the relevant risk, as per the Pillar 2 requirement: this has not been deemed necessary. This process is conducted at Partners meetings which are held on a quarterly basis and the relevant policies and procedures are updated where necessary.
The Partners have identified operational risk as the main area of risk to which the firm is exposed.
The Firm has concluded that its Tier 1 capital is sufficient to cover its Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 requirements.
