Summary Remuneration Policy
Ownership Capital has established a remuneration policy to promote good business practice and sound and effective risk management, in accordance with the “Wet financiëel toezicht” (Financial Supervisory Act), Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector (SFDR), and other applicable rules and regulations. The below is a summary of this policy.
Through its remuneration of employees, Ownership Capital seeks to align the personal objectives of employees with the business strategy, objectives, values and long-term interests of Ownership Capital and its clients, investors, and other stakeholders. In doing so, it endeavours to be consistent with and to promote sound and effective risk management, including sustainability-related risks, and not to encourage excessive risk-taking.
We are committed to the principle of equal pay for equal work for all our employees and will not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, political opinion, religion, belief, disability, civil status, age, or nationality.
Ownership Capital’s fixed remuneration to employees is well in keeping with the market. Employees may be entitled to variable remuneration when Ownership Capital’s portfolios have outperformed the market. Such variable compensation will be based both on the employees’ financial and non-financial contribution to portfolio outperformance. Ownership Capital will seek to ensure that fixed and variable components of total remuneration are appropriately balanced.
Performance will be measured over multi-year periods to ensure that compensation is based on longer-term performance. Payment of performance-based remuneration will be spread over a period which takes account of the underlying business cycle of Ownership Capital and its associated business risks.
Over the year 2020, there were no employees who received total compensation of more than seven hundred thousand euros and no employee received variable remuneration in excess of three hundred fifty thousand euros. Due the close relationship between variable remuneration and portfolio performance, Ownership Capital does not make any forward looking statements on variable remuneration.
Execution and venue Information
Under MiFID II Ownership Capital is required to publish information on the top 5 execution venues and an analysis of the quality of execution over the past calendar year. However, Ownership Capital only executes trades for the portfolios it manages through one venue, Goldman Sachs International Bank.
