UK Stewardship Code
Capstone Investment Advisors (UK) LLP supports the stewardship code’s objectives but does not claim to comply with the code as its investment strategies do not generally involve taking positions in UK listed stock. Moreover, if we were to take a position in a UK listed stock, our investment strategy would be to trade the volatility of the security and this investment strategy is not consistent with the principles of the code.
Capstone Investment Advisors (UK) LLP is currently considering whether it will adopt an engagement policy pursuant to Article 3g of the amended EU Shareholder Rights Directive (Directive 2007/36/EC). When that decision has been made, this webpage will be updated accordingly.
Statutory Status Disclosure and Complaints
Capstone Investment Advisors (UK) LLP is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. For professional investors only.
We aim to ensure that we treat our customers fairly at all times. Any complaints will be investigated competently, diligently and impartially, assessed fairly and promptly with respect to the subject matter of the complaint, and whether the complaint should be upheld and what remedial action or redress may be appropriate.
The FCA’s Dispute Resolution (“DISP”) handbook sets out the rules relating to the handling of complaints from eligible complainants and MiFID clients. We have determined that we have no eligible complainants under the DISP rules at present.
However, certain consumers could be considered to be eligible complainants under the DISP rules in the future and, as such, we will apply the rules within DISP with respect to those investors.
We define complaints as follows with respect to the two categories of complainants:
Eligible complaint – defined by the FCA as meaning ‘any oral or written expression of dissatisfaction, whether justified or not, from, or on behalf of, a person about the provision of, or failure to provide, a financial service which (a) alleges that the complainant has suffered (or may suffer) financial loss, material distress of material inconvenience; and (b) relates to an activity of that respondent, or any other respondent with whom that respondent has some connection in marketing or providing financial services or products, which comes under the jurisdiction of the Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”).
MiFID complaint – defined as ‘any oral or written expression of dissatisfaction, whether justified or not, from, or on behalf of, a person about the provision of, or failure to provide, a financial service or a redress determination which alleges that the complainant has suffered or may suffer financial loss, material distress or material inconvenience’. This does not come under the jurisdiction of FOS.
Upon receipt of a Complaint, as defined above, the Chief Compliance Officer will ensure that eligible complainants are provided a copy of this document, which constitutes our complaints handling policy, when acknowledging a complaint.
We will endeavor to communicate with you clearly and in plain language that is easy to understand and reply to your complaint without undue delay. As soon as we have made the relevant enquiries and reviewed your complaint we will write to you. If we have reasonable grounds to be satisfied that another respondent may be solely or jointly responsible for the matter alleged in your complaint, we may promptly forward the complaint, or the relevant part of it, in writing to that other respondent. We will inform you promptly in a final response of the reason for forwarding the complaint, including the other respondent’s contact details. Where jointly responsible for the fault alleged in the complaint, we will comply with own obligations under the DISP rules in respect of that part of the complaint we have not forwarded.
We will endeavor to write to you within eight weeks.
All complainants should contact the Chief Compliance Officer.
Contact: Emily Locher
We are required to provide clear and accessible information about the Financial Ombudsman Service (“FOS”) including its website address.
If your complaint is not resolved by us to your satisfaction, and if your complaint falls within the jurisdiction of the FOS, then you may take your complaint to the FOS.
If a business and a customer can’t resolve a complaint themselves, the FOS can give an unbiased answer about what’s happened. If the FOS decide someone’s been treated unfairly, they have legal powers to put things right. In order to contact the Financial Ombudsman Service or obtain details of the compensation scheme you should:
- write to- The Financial Ombudsman Service, Exchange Tower, London, E14 9SR; or
- telephone 0300 123 9 123 or 0800 023 4567; or
- visit- http://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk/default.htm

Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation
Capstone Investment Advisors, LLC (“Capstone”) has made a determination that sustainability risks are not currently relevant to its investment decision making process and has further determined that sustainability risks are currently not likely to have a material impact on the returns of its investment portfolios. Given the focus of the investment portfolios on volatility, relative value strategies and seeking risk-based returns, Capstone generally does not expect sustainability risks and their associated effects on the underlying value of investments to influence the selection and performance of investment portfolio positions. Capstone may consider it appropriate to integrate sustainability risks into its investment decisions in the future and this disclosure will be updated in accordance with the Disclosures Regulation to reflect any such decision.
Having taking into account the size, nature and scale of its activities, and as the primary objective of Capstone is to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors, Capstone considers it would be disproportionate to consider principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors at this time. Capstone therefore does not currently consider principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors. Capstone acknowledges that the pursuit of the investment portfolios’ objectives may, in some circumstances, have an adverse impact on sustainability factors.

Additional Disclosures for Capstone Video Presentations
This presentation shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of any offer to buy, which may only be made at the time a qualified offeree receives a confidential private offering memorandum and other definitive documents (together, the “CPOM”), which contain important information (including investment objective, policies, risk factors, fees, tax implications and relevant qualifications), in those jurisdictions where permitted by law. In the case of any inconsistency between the descriptions or terms in this document and the CPOM, the CPOM shall control. Please refer to the section at the end of this document entitled “Disclaimers” when reviewing the information presented herein. For professional investors only.
The information in the presentation reflects, as of the date hereof, the views of Capstone Investment Advisors, LLC (“Capstone”) and sources believed by Capstone to be reliable.

These materials are provided for informational purposes only, and under no circumstances may any information contained herein be construed as investment advice. Capstone does not provide tax, legal or accounting advice. This presentation is not an offer or solicitation for the purchase or sale of any financial instrument, product or services sponsored or provided by Capstone. The offering of interest in the fund may only be made pursuant to the Confidential Offering Memorandum, which should be read in its entirety. References to specific securities are presented solely in the context of industry analysis and are not to be considered recommendations by Capstone. This document is not an advertisement and is not intended for public use or additional further distribution.
This presentation is provided for informational purposes only, reflecting prevailing market conditions and our judgments as of the date indicated herein. Opinions and estimates may be changed without notice and involve a number of assumptions which may not prove valid.
By viewing this presentation, the recipient will be deemed to represent that they possess, either individually or through their advisors, sufficient investment expertise to understand the risks involved in any purchase or sale of any financial instruments discussed herein. Neither this presentation nor any of its contents may be used for any purpose without the consent of Capstone.
Prospective investors should consider the following factors when determining if an investment in the Fund is suitable. A full discussion of risk factors can be found in the Fund’s Confidential Offering Memorandum. Absence of Regulatory Oversight: The shares and the offer of shares have not and will not be registered for sale, and there will be no public offering of the Interest. No offer to sell (or solicitation of an offer to buy) will be made in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation would be unlawful. The shares described herein have not been filed with or approved or disapproved by any regulatory authority of any country or jurisdiction, nor has any such regulatory authority passed upon or endorsed the merits of such securities.
Limited Liquidity: There is no active secondary market for fund shares and none is expected to develop. Opportunities for withdrawals/redemptions and transferability of interests are limited, so investors may not have access to capital when it is needed.
Investment and Trading Risks: The Fund may engage in speculative investment practices including the use of leverage, investments in distressed securities and derivatives that may increase the risk of investment loss. Fund performance may be volatile and an investor could lose all or a substantial portion of its investment.
Fees: Investment management and incentive fees will offset trading profits. The incentive fee payable to the investment manager may create an incentive for the investment manager to make investments that are riskier or more speculative than if the investment manager was not paid an incentive fee.
Capstone is an investment adviser registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended. Registration of an investment adviser with the SEC does not imply a certain level of skill or training.
