II) PILLAR 3 DISCLOSURE                                as of 30/06/2021

 

Macrocapital Limited, is registered in England and Wales with company number 04014398 and for over twenty-one years now (since March 2001) is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (IMRO and FSA in the past) as an Investment Manager (195463).

Part of the regulatory requirements and in particular of the Capital Requirement Directive (‘CRD’), is to carry out an Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (‘ICAAP’) at least in the end of its financial year. Since January 2022 the new IFPR – Investment Firms Prudential Regime changes come into force and with that new capital and risk calculations. These new calculation factors known as K factors will form the content of the Internal Capital Adequacy Risk Assessment (ICARA) which replaces the ICAAP.

As far as capital requirements are concerned, Macrocapital Limited is a ‘BIPRU’ Limited License Firm, that doesn’t hold or control client money. This is explained in the Financial Conduct Authority (‘FCA’) Handbook and particularly within the FCA Prudential Sourcebook for Banks, Building Societies and Investment Firms (‘BIPRU’).

This regulatory capital has 3 pillars of capital requirements that have to be followed:

I] Pillar 1 is a variable capital requirement based on the sum of operational, market and credit risk requirements. Every firm must maintain at all times capital resources equal to or in excess of the amount specified.

II] Pillar 2 is an additional capital requirement related to risks not covered in Pillar 1. It requires firms and their supervisors to review whether additional capital should be held against risks not covered in Pillar 1 as well as instigate and oversee additional controls to mitigate such risks or a combination of these two approaches.

III] Pillar 3 is a requirement to publish certain details of capital and risk management and to review and update this information at least annually.

Under the current rules, a firm may omit one or more disclosures where the information provided by such disclosure is not regarded as material. As our services are offered to a very select set of customers and we are currently not marketing we do not disclose detailed information to the wider public.

The required Pillar 3 disclosures below apply solely to Macrocapital Limited as a legal, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, entity.


Risk management
The company's risk management focuses on the major areas of market risk, operational risk and business risk. The management of the firm has sufficient experience to manage risks appropriately and has a compliance director who regularly monitors risk by reviewing reports prepared by external compliance consultants.


Capital resources
The company's capital comprises of called up share capital and the audited profit and loss account.
A summary of the company's capital is as follows:  

                                                                        £'000
Tier 1
Called up share capital                                   380

Revaluation reserve                                          42
Profit and loss account                                 (251)
Total capital                                                      172


Market, operational, and credit risk
The company is a small firm with a simple operational infrastructure and in the directors' opinion the simplified standard approach to credit, market, and operational risk is appropriate.
The company has assessed its Pillar 1 and Pillar 2 capital requirement to be £45K.

The Pillar 1 capital resource requirement is the higher of the base capital requirements (a fixed number equal to €50,000) and the variable capital resource requirements.

(The latter is  the higher of i) the Fixed Overhead Requirement(13 weeks of the Firm’s annual expenses excluding variable costs.) and ii) the sum of the Credit Risk and Market Risk Capital Requirements-which are very small for our company.) .

 


III) Disclosure of commitment to the Financial Reporting Council's Stewardship Code ("The Code") under FCA COBS 2.2.3R.
Macrocapital Limited ("The Firm") is an investment manager based in the United Kingdom and authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
We endeavour to apply our approach on stewardship to all companies that we invest in on behalf of our clients. Our approach is consistent with the Firm's overall aims, which are to provide good long-term performance to our clients, and keeping clients' interests paramount.
The Firm monitors all investee companies as part of its general investment policy and approach. The Firm takes action in line with its investment objectives where its research of publically available information warrants such action.
However, given the nature of our chosen investment strategy, this approach does not include active engagement with UK listed investee companies, nor do we consider that our clients would expect such engagement.
If our investment strategy changes in such a manner that the provisions of the Code become relevant, the Firm will amend this disclosure accordingly.

IV) SFDR  - Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation

SFDR aims to increase transparency on how financial market participants integrate sustainability into their investment decisions and recommendations. It introduces a classification system with new disclosure requirements for investment products.
The aim of SFDR is to promote transparency by ensuring that fund managers disclose their approach to sustainability. Macrocapital Limited will include disclosures on its website, in its managed account prospectuses and in its annual report. The implementation of SFDR and other related sustainable finance regulations is expected to run from 10 March 2021 until at least the end of 2022, meaning that Macrocapital Limited will continue to implement and provide more transparency in the years to come. 


The SFDR applies to Macrocapital Limited because we manage managed accounts. We may also provide investment advice, which means we are a financial advisor for SFDR purposes.


Financial market participant Macrocapital Limited, with LEI: 213800OYOFGU1OAG2S92  does not consider principal adverse impacts of its investment decisions on sustainability factors. 

Reasoning:
All our discretionary strategies are based on technical driven trading on listed futures and options on equity indices or currencies. Having thoroughly establishes what the sustainability impacts would be of these strategies we have found they are none, particularly for the size of trades we place and the holding period. Furthermore, most of our strategies are very bearish. We believe we are looking at a very substantial correction and most likely a period of depression like the 1930's. where sustainability criteria will most likely not be sustainable and for now we are not looking to change that and integrate sustainability on our policies


The present statement is the consolidated principal adverse sustainability impacts statement of Macrocapital Limited. This principal adverse impacts statement covers the reference period from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022.
