Important Legal Information

The information, products and services referred to on this website are not directed at any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country outside those where NEVASTAR FINANCE has an office.

The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up, and you may not recover the amount of your original investment. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.

Where an investment involves exposure to a foreign currency, changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of the investment, and the income from it, to go up or down. In the case of some investments, you should be aware that there is no recognised market for them, and that it may therefore be difficult for you to deal in them or for you to obtain reliable information about their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. Certain investments carry a higher degree of risk than others and are, therefore, unsuitable for some investors. Before contemplating any transaction, you should consider whether you require financial advice, which we would be pleased to provide upon request. NEVASTAR FINANCE, or a connected company, its clients and officers may have a position or engage in transactions in any of the securities mentioned. The research and analysis on this website have been procured, and may have been acted upon, by NEVASTAR FINANCE and connected companies for their own purposes, and the results are being made available to you on this understanding.

The Stewardship Code

The Stewardship Code (the "Code") was developed from the Walker Review on Corporate Governance in the UK and aims to enhance the quality of engagement between investors, investment managers and UK listed companies. Although the Code is voluntary, the Financial Services Authority (under the FSA Rule COBS 2.2.3R ), requires Nevastar Finance Ltd. to include on this website a disclosure about the nature of its commitment to the Code or, where it does not so commit, its alternative strategy.

Nevastar Finance Ltd. is an independent investment firm which provides management services to clients around the world. Nevastar Finance's overriding objective is to protect and increase the wealth of our clients by achieving superior returns while minimising investment risks. As we are not in the business of selling in-house products to our clients we pursue various equity investment strategies that sometimes involve Nevastar Finance indirectly investing in global equities, including UK equities. We look for the best investments to meet our client's needs without placing artificial restrictions on that search and aim to find the best managers and solutions across all asset classes, irrespective of geographic location.

Consistent with that objective and aim, our principal strategy is to invest in funds which are managed by other investment managers who may or may not have committed to the Code. As part of that, we may on occasions invest directly into corporate vehicles such as investment trusts, whether those vehicles are funds or otherwise. Nevastar Finance takes a global approach to engagement with issuers and their management in all of the jurisdictions in which we invest and consequently, while we support the general objectives behind the Code, Nevastar Finance does not consider it appropriate to commit to any particular voluntary code of practice relating to corporate governance in any individual jurisdiction.
