We are Tier 1 signatories to the UK Stewardship Code, which was first published by the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) in July 2010 and revised with effect from October 2012. The Code aims to enhance the quality of engagement between investors and companies to help improve long-term risk-adjusted returns to shareholders. In 2016 the FRC assessed signatories to the Code based on the quality of their statements in response to the Code. This was undertaken to improve the quality of reporting against the Code, encourage greater transparency in the market and maintain the credibility of the Code. Based on the quality of its response Amati Global Investors has been named as a Tier 1 signatory to the Code.
