UK DISCLOSURES

Castlelake (UK) LLP, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Castlelake, L.P., is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. 

UK STEWARDSHIP CODE STATEMENT

Castlelake is not a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code. Although Castlelake generally supports the objectives that underlie the Code, Castlelake has chosen not to commit to it given the nature of our investment strategy and the types of investments we make, all as further described on this website. Castlelake has established a Environmental, Social and Governance Policy as it believes that ESG factors can have a material influence on investment outcomes. The policy outlines Castlelake’s commitment to incorporating ESG factors into investment analysis and decision making where such factors are deemed to be relevant, while also acting in a manner that is consistent with Castlelake’s fiduciary responsibility to its clients. 

UK SHAREHOLDER ENGAGEMENT DISCLOSURE

The Shareholder Rights Directive II (SRD II) requires certain UK portfolio managers to develop and disclose a shareholder engagement policy or provide an explanation of why they have chosen not to do so. Castlelake has considered the requirements of SRD II and has concluded that it would not be appropriate for the Firm to develop a shareholder engagement policy at this time. Although Castlelake closely monitors performance of the listed companies in which it invests, it does not consider shareholder engagement in listed companies to be an integral part of its investment process or its investment strategy. Castlelake will continue to evaluate any future developments in its approach to shareholder engagement and may update this statement from time to time.
