THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

In July 2010, the UK’s Financial Reporting Council published "The UK Stewardship Code." This Code comprises a set of guidelines aimed at improving the ways in which institutional investors interact with the management of companies in which they invest. In addition it proposes measures to increase the level of transparency surrounding institutional investors’ activities as shareholders for the benefit of the investors’ underlying clients.

This section of the Terms explains how Barclays Investment Solutions Limited address the measures proposed in these guidelines.

Investment management is carried out for professional investors in the UK by Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. Investment management activity is predominantly carried out in the form of multi-manager and fund of fund arrangements. That is to say that we choose to outsource the selection of assets, including shares, to other investment managers, by either investing into a fund or by giving a number of managers a portion of the money that we raise for investment from underlying fund investors. These managers we select through a thorough due diligence process, focusing in every case on identifying a manager that we believe can generate the best risk-adjusted returns in the asset class or strategy in relation to which we are seeking to delegate management.

As part of the manager selection process, and on an ongoing basis, we will consider numerous factors around the manager’s proposed investment strategy and their performance against that strategy.

Across all of our UK investment management activity, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will not generally exercise voting rights. However, where Barclays Investment Solutions Limited does exercise discretion to vote for or against a particular proposal it will be in a manner consistent with its customers’ best interests. We do not therefore directly commit to observe the Stewardship Code, though we do support its aims. Our main goal in fund management is to ensure that we select managers and funds that seek to maximise investor returns within the constraints they operate under given their particular specialism.

LAW AND WHERE ANY DISPUTE WOULD TAKE PLACE

These Terms, and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with them, are governed by English law.

THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

In July 2010, the UK’s Financial Reporting Council published "The UK Stewardship Code." This Code comprises a set of guidelines aimed at improving the ways in which institutional investors interact with the management of companies in which they invest. In addition it proposes measures to increase the level of transparency surrounding institutional investors’ activities as shareholders for the benefit of the investors’ underlying clients.

This section of the Terms explains how Barclays Investment Solutions Limited addresses the measures proposed in these guidelines.

Investment management is carried out for professional investors in the UK by Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. Investment management activity is predominantly carried out in the form of multi-manager and fund of fund arrangements. That is to say that we choose to outsource the selection of assets, including shares, to other investment managers, by either investing into a fund or by giving a number of managers a portion of the money that we raise for investment from underlying fund investors. These managers we select through a thorough due diligence process, focusing in every case on identifying a manager that we believe can generate the best risk-adjusted returns in the asset class or strategy in relation to which we are seeking to delegate management.

As part of the manager selection process, and on an ongoing basis, we will consider numerous factors around the manager’s proposed investment strategy and their performance against that strategy.

Across all of our UK investment management activity, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will not generally exercise voting rights. However, where Barclays Investment Solutions Limited does exercise discretion to vote for or against a particular proposal it will be in a manner consistent with its customers’ best interests. We do not therefore directly commit to observe the Stewardship Code, though we do support its aims. Our main goal in fund management is to ensure that we select managers and funds that seek to maximise investor returns within the constraints they operate under given their particular specialism.

SEVERABILITY

If any provision in these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, then such provision or part of it will, to the extent that it is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, be deemed not to form part of these Terms and the legality, validity and enforceability of the remainder of these Terms will not be affected.

Law and where any dispute would take place

These Terms, and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with them, are governed by English law. The courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with these Terms.

THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

In July 2010, the UK’s Financial Reporting Council published "The UK Stewardship Code." This Code comprises a set of guidelines aimed at improving the ways in which institutional investors interact with the management of companies in which they invest. In addition it proposes measures to increase the level of transparency surrounding institutional investors’ activities as shareholders for the benefit of the investors’ underlying clients.

This section of the Terms explains how Barclays Investment Solutions Limited addresses the measures proposed in these guidelines.

Investment management is carried out for professional investors in the UK by Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. Investment management activity is predominantly carried out in the form of multi-manager and fund of fund arrangements. That is to say that we choose to outsource the selection of assets, including shares, to other investment managers, by either investing into a fund or by giving a number of managers a portion of the money that we raise for investment from underlying fund investors. These managers we select through a thorough due diligence process, focusing in every case on identifying a manager that we believe can generate the best risk-adjusted returns in the asset class or strategy in relation to which we are seeking to delegate management.

As part of the manager selection process, and on an ongoing basis, we will consider numerous factors around the manager’s proposed investment strategy and their performance against that strategy.

Across all of our UK investment management activity, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will not generally exercise voting rights. However, where Barclays Investment Solutions Limited does exercise discretion to vote for or against a particular proposal it will be in a manner consistent with its customers’ best interests. We do not therefore directly commit to observe the Stewardship Code, though we do support its aims. Our main goal in fund management is to ensure that we select managers and funds that seek to maximise investor returns within the constraints they operate under given their particular specialism.

SEVERABILITY

If any provision in these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, then such provision or part of it will, to the extent that it is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, be deemed not to form part of these Terms and the legality, validity and enforceability of the remainder of these Terms will not be affected.

LAW AND WHERE ANY DISPUTE WOULD TAKE PLACE

These Terms, and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with them, are governed by English law. The courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with these Terms.

THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

In July 2010, the UK’s Financial Reporting Council published "The UK Stewardship Code." This Code comprises a set of guidelines aimed at improving the ways in which institutional investors interact with the management of companies in which they invest. In addition it proposes measures to increase the level of transparency surrounding institutional investors’ activities as shareholders for the benefit of the investors’ underlying clients.

This section of the Terms explains how Barclays Investment Solutions Limited addresses the measures proposed in these guidelines.

Investment management is carried out for professional investors in the UK by Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. Investment management activity is predominantly carried out in the form of multi-manager and fund of fund arrangements. That is to say that we choose to outsource the selection of assets, including shares, to other investment managers, by either investing into a fund or by giving a number of managers a portion of the money that we raise for investment from underlying fund investors. These managers we select through a thorough due diligence process, focusing in every case on identifying a manager that we believe can generate the best risk-adjusted returns in the asset class or strategy in relation to which we are seeking to delegate management.

As part of the manager selection process, and on an ongoing basis, we will consider numerous factors around the manager’s proposed investment strategy and their performance against that strategy.

Across all of our UK investment management activity, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will not generally exercise voting rights. However, where Barclays Investment Solutions Limited does exercise discretion to vote for or against a particular proposal it will be in a manner consistent with its customers’ best interests. We do not therefore directly commit to observe the Stewardship Code, though we do support its aims. Our main goal in fund management is to ensure that we select managers and funds that seek to maximise investor returns within the constraints they operate under given their particular specialism.

INVESTOR RIGHTS

Pursuant to Directive (EU) 2019/1160 (“CBDF”), certain local facilities relating to your investment in a UCITS fund must be made available to investors. In relation to your investment in a UCITS fund, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will make available to investors the following local facilities services:

(i) please refer to the ‘Contacting Us’ section in the Terms & Conditions for information on investor complaints in jurisdictions where your investment is marketed;

(ii) please visit the ‘Documents’ tab relevant to your investment(s) to access the prospectus, the annual and half yearly reports, and the key investor information documents (KIIDs) relating to your investment

These facilities will be made available to you in either an official language of your jurisdiction, or in a language approved by your local regulator. Please note that Barclays Solutions Limited will provide information in respect of the facilities available to you via website, on paper, or, if appropriate, by means of another durable medium.

All applicants must complete an application form prescribed by the directors in relation to the fund. An application form accompanies the fund’s prospectus and sets out the methods by which and to whom the subscription monies should be sent. Every shareholder will have the right to require the company to redeem their shares in the fund on any dealing day on furnishing to the administrator a redemption request. For further detail, please refer to the fund’s prospectus.

If you are a unitholder in the fund and these units are registered in your name on the shareholder register, you will have certain shareholder rights which you can exercise. More details on shareholder rights are set out in the Prospectus and incorporation documents for the Fund.

INVESTOR RIGHTS UNDER YOUR CONTRACT WITH THE FUND

As an investor in a UCITS fund, and depending on how you invested, you may have certain investor rights arising under contract between yourself and the Fund, for further details on these rights please refer in particular to the Prospectus and to the contractual documentation which you completed in order to make your investment.

ADDITIONAL INVESTOR RIGHTS ARISING FROM LOCAL LAWS

Depending on how you invested in the Fund, you may be entitled to avail of certain domestic protections and rights to compensation claims deriving from your local legislation. For further details on such rights please refer to your local investor compensation website, if available.

COLLECTIVE REDRESS

Furthermore, in the event you perceive you have suffered a loss, you may have a right to seek redress on a collective basis though a collective redress mechanism which has been made available in your local jurisdiction. The availability of access to a local collective redress mechanism will depend on the jurisdiction you are based in and the location of the contract formed with the Fund and how you invested in the Fund. For further details on such rights please refer to your local regulator website.

The European Union has introduced legislation to support the ability for consumers to take representative action across the EU. This piece of legislation is due to be implemented into local law by the end of December 2022 and we will update this summary with further rights as they arise in due course.

LAW AND WHERE ANY DISPUTE WOULD TAKE PLACE

These Terms, and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with them, are governed by English law. The courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with these Terms.

THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

In July 2010, the UK’s Financial Reporting Council published "The UK Stewardship Code." This Code comprises a set of guidelines aimed at improving the ways in which institutional investors interact with the management of companies in which they invest. In addition it proposes measures to increase the level of transparency surrounding institutional investors’ activities as shareholders for the benefit of the investors’ underlying clients.

This section of the Terms explains how Barclays Investment Solutions Limited addresses the measures proposed in these guidelines.

Investment management is carried out for professional investors in the UK by Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. Investment management activity is predominantly carried out in the form of multi-manager and fund of fund arrangements. That is to say that we choose to outsource the selection of assets, including shares, to other investment managers, by either investing into a fund or by giving a number of managers a portion of the money that we raise for investment from underlying fund investors. These managers we select through a thorough due diligence process, focusing in every case on identifying a manager that we believe can generate the best risk-adjusted returns in the asset class or strategy in relation to which we are seeking to delegate management.

As part of the manager selection process, and on an ongoing basis, we will consider numerous factors around the manager’s proposed investment strategy and their performance against that strategy.

Across all of our UK investment management activity, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will not generally exercise voting rights. However, where Barclays Investment Solutions Limited does exercise discretion to vote for or against a particular proposal it will be in a manner consistent with its customers’ best interests. We do not therefore directly commit to observe the Stewardship Code, though we do support its aims. Our main goal in fund management is to ensure that we select managers and funds that seek to maximise investor returns within the constraints they operate under given their particular specialism.

SEVERABILITY

If any provision in these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, then such provision or part of it will, to the extent that it is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, be deemed not to form part of these Terms and the legality, validity and enforceability of the remainder of these Terms will not be affected.

LAW AND WHERE ANY DISPUTE WOULD TAKE PLACE

These Terms, and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with them, are governed by English law. The courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any non-contractual obligation arising out of or in connection with these Terms.

THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

In July 2010, the UK’s Financial Reporting Council published "The UK Stewardship Code." This Code comprises a set of guidelines aimed at improving the ways in which institutional investors interact with the management of companies in which they invest. In addition it proposes measures to increase the level of transparency surrounding institutional investors’ activities as shareholders for the benefit of the investors’ underlying clients.

This section of the Terms explains how Barclays Investment Solutions Limited addresses the measures proposed in these guidelines.

Investment management is carried out for professional investors in the UK by Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. Investment management activity is predominantly carried out in the form of multi-manager and fund of fund arrangements. That is to say that we choose to outsource the selection of assets, including shares, to other investment managers, by either investing into a fund or by giving a number of managers a portion of the money that we raise for investment from underlying fund investors. These managers we select through a thorough due diligence process, focusing in every case on identifying a manager that we believe can generate the best risk-adjusted returns in the asset class or strategy in relation to which we are seeking to delegate management.

As part of the manager selection process, and on an ongoing basis, we will consider numerous factors around the manager’s proposed investment strategy and their performance against that strategy.

Across all of our UK investment management activity, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited will not generally exercise voting rights. However, where Barclays Investment Solutions Limited does exercise discretion to vote for or against a particular proposal it will be in a manner consistent with its customers’ best interests. We do not therefore directly commit to observe the Stewardship Code, though we do support its aims. Our main goal in fund management is to ensure that we select managers and funds that seek to maximise investor returns within the constraints they operate under given their particular specialism.

Los datos que puede encontrar en el sitio web se basan en investigaciones y análisis cuantitativos de datos históricos que utilizan ponderaciones de los activos propuestos y actuales, y previsiones sobre rendimientos futuros y estimaciones sobre volatilidad futura.

Habida cuenta de que los ejemplos no tienen en consideración corretajes, comisiones ni impuestos, la rentabilidad real de una inversión podría ser superior o inferior a lo reflejado en el ejemplo.

EL CÓDIGO DE GESTIÓN DEL REINO UNIDO

En julio de 2010, el Consejo británico de Información Financiera (Financial Reporting Council) publicaba el «Código de Gestión del Reino Unido» (UK Stewardship Code). En él se incluyen una serie de pautas destinadas a mejorar la interacción de los inversores institucionales con la dirección de las sociedades en las que invierten. Asimismo propone medidas para incrementar el nivel de transparencia de las actividades de inversores institucionales como accionistas, en beneficio de los clientes últimos de dichos inversores.

En este apartado de las Condiciones se explica cómo abordará Barclays Investment Solutions Limited las medidas que se proponen en dichas pautas.

De la gestión de las inversiones de inversores profesionales en el Reino Unido se encarga Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. La gestión de inversiones se lleva a cabo principalmente por medio de sistemas de fondos de fondos y multigestor. Esto significa que decidimos subcontratar la selección de activos, incluidas las acciones, a otros gestores de inversiones, ya sea invirtiendo en un fondo o proporcionando a una serie de gestores una parte del dinero que nos facilitan los inversores en los fondos subyacentes para su inversión. Seleccionamos estos gestores usando una completa investigación de due diligence, centrándonos siempre en identificar a gestores que, a nuestro juicio, puedan conseguir la máxima rentabilidad ajustada al riesgo en la estrategia o clase de activo de la cual deseamos delegar la gestión.

Como parte de este proceso de selección de gestores, y con carácter permanente, consideraremos numerosos factores de la estrategia de inversión propuesta por el gestor, así como los resultados que han obtenido con esta.

En todas las actividades de gestión que llevamos a cabo en Reino Unido, Barclays Investment Solutions Limited no ejercerá generalmente derechos de voto. Sin embargo, si Barclays Investment Solutions Limited ejerce, a su criterio, sus derechos de voto a favor o en contra de una propuesta concreta, lo hará de la manera que más interese a sus clientes. Por lo tanto, no nos comprometemos directamente a aplicar el Código de Gestión, pero sí que respaldamos sus objetivos. Nuestra meta principal con la gestión de fondos consiste en garantizar la selección de gestores y fondos que traten de incrementar al máximo las rentabilidades, dentro de los límites en los que actúan dada su especialización concreta.

ENTRE LOS DIFERENTES FONDOS DE LOS QUE DISPONEMOS SE ENCUENTRAN LOS SIGUIENTES:

Barclays Multi-Manager Fund public limited company, Barclays Portfolios SICAV, Barclays Wealth Investment Funds (UK), Barclays Multi-Manager Fund (UK), Barclays Dividend and Growth Portfolio, Barclays Charity Fund, que constituyen todos organismos de inversión colectiva autorizados o reconocidos conforme a la definición de la sección 237 (3) de la Ley británica sobre mercados y servicios financieros (Financial Services and Markets Act) de 2000, texto refundido.

Les illustrations des risques et rendements probables d'éventuels portefeuilles et investissements présentées sur ce Site ne constituent pas des conseils spécifiques sur un investissement donné, et ne doivent pas servir de base à vos décisions. Les illustrations sont correctes uniquement au moment de la rédaction, et peuvent être modifiées.

RISQUES INHÉRENTS À LA PERFORMANCE DES INVESTISSEMENTS

La valeur des investissements éventuellement présentés sur ce Site, ainsi que les revenus qui en découlent, peuvent fluctuer à la hausse comme à la baisse. La performance passée des investissements n’est pas une indication de leur performance future.

Les fluctuations des taux de change peuvent affecter la valeur des investissements exposés à des devises étrangères.

Vous pourriez ne pas récupérer le montant du capital investi initialement. Toutes les prévisions de revenus et tous les rendements sont estimés et sont inclus uniquement à titre d'indication. En outre, toute valorisation fournie sur ce Site peut ne pas refléter exactement le prix auquel les investissements peuvent être réellement achetés ou vendus, et les incidences fiscales ne sont pas prises en compte.

Les données éventuellement fournies sur ce Site proviennent de recherches quantitatives et de l'analyse des données historiques, selon des pondérations d'actifs actuelles et suggérées, des prévisions internes quant aux rendements attendus et des estimations de la volatilité future. Les données ne reflètent pas les échanges effectivement réalisés, les contraintes liées à la liquidité, les frais et les autres coûts applicables. Elles ne doivent pas être considérées comme une prévision ou une estimation des probables rendements futurs. Dans la mesure où les illustrations ne tiennent compte ni des frais et commissions ni des incidences fiscales, la performance réelle d'un investissement peut être supérieure ou inférieure à celle présentée dans l'illustration.

AUTONOMIE DES DISPOSITIONS

Si une disposition des présentes Conditions est jugée illégale, invalide ou non applicable, dans sa totalité ou en partie, ladite disposition ou la partie concernée de ladite disposition est réputée de pas faire partie des présentes Conditions, dans la mesure où elle est illégale, invalide ou non applicable, et la légalité, la validité et l'applicabilité des autres dispositions des présentes Conditions n'est pas affectée.

LOI APPLICABLE ET ENDROIT OÙ LES LITIGES SERONT TRAITÉS

Les présentes Conditions, ainsi que toute obligation non contractuelle qui en découle ou qui y est associée, sont régies par le droit anglais. Les tribunaux d'Angleterre ont compétence exclusive pour régler tout litige découlant du présent Accord ou y afférent et toute obligation non contractuelle découlant des présentes Conditions ou y afférente.

LE CODE BRITANNIQUE DE BONNE GOUVERNANCE (« UK STEWARDSHIP CODE »)

En juillet 2010, le conseil britannique d’information financière (« UK’s Financial Reporting Council ») a publié le « code britannique de bonne gouvernance ». Ce code comprend un ensemble de lignes directrices visant à améliorer la manière dont les investisseurs professionnels communiquent avec les organes de gestion des sociétés dans lesquelles ils investissent. Le code propose également des mesures destinées à renforcer la transparence concernant les activités exercées par les investisseurs professionnels, en leur qualité de détenteurs de participations dans les fonds, dans l’intérêt des clients sous-jacents des investisseurs.

La présente partie des Conditions explique la manière dont Barclays Investment Solutions Limited répond aux mesures proposées dans ces lignes directrices.

La gestion des investissements est assurée par Barclays Investment Solutions Limited pour le compte d’investisseurs professionnels établis au Royaume-Uni. L’activité de gestion d’investissement est exercée, pour l’essentiel, sous la forme de mécanismes à plusieurs gestionnaires et de fonds de fonds. Cela signifie que nous choisissons d’externaliser la sélection des actifs (y compris des participations) auprès d’autres gestionnaires d’investissements, soit en investissant dans un fonds, soit en versant à un certain nombre de gestionnaires une portion des sommes que nous levons à des fins d’investissement auprès d’investisseurs dans des fonds sous-jacents. Nous sélectionnons ces gestionnaires à l’issue d’une procédure de due diligence rigoureuse, en nous concentrant dans tous les cas sur la nécessité d’identifier un gestionnaire que nous estimons à même d’offrir les meilleurs rendements corrigés dans la classe d’actifs ou dans le cadre de la stratégie dont nous cherchons à déléguer la gestion.

Dans le cadre de la procédure de sélection du gestionnaire, et de manière continue par la suite, nous examinerons de nombreux facteurs se rapportant à la proposition de stratégie d’investissement du gestionnaire et à la performance de celui-ci au regard de cette stratégie.

Barclays Investment Solutions Limited n’exercera généralement pas ses droits de vote dans le cadre de son activité britannique de gestion d’investissement. Cependant, dans les cas où Barclays Investment Solutions Limited exerce le droit discrétionnaire dont elle dispose de voter en faveur ou à l’encontre d’une proposition donnée, elle le fera de manière à servir au mieux les intérêts de ses clients. En conséquence, nous ne prenons pas directement l’engagement de respecter le code de bonne gouvernance, même si nous en soutenons les finalités. Notre principal objectif, en matière de gestion d’investissement, est de veiller à sélectionner des gestionnaires et des fonds qui cherchent à optimiser les rendements offerts aux l’investisseurs dans la limite des contraintes auxquelles ils sont soumis dans l’exercice de leur activité compte tenu de leurs spécialisations respectives.

RECOURS COLLECTIF

En outre, si vous estimez avoir subi une perte, il est possible que vous ayez le droit de demander réparation sur une base collective par le biais d’un mécanisme de recours collectif qui a été mis en place dans votre juridiction locale. La possibilité d’accéder à un mécanisme de recours collectif local variera en fonction de la juridiction dont vous dépendez, du pays dans lequel vous avez conclu votre contrat avec le Fonds et de la manière dont vous avez investi dans le Fonds. Pour de plus amples informations sur ces droits, veuillez consulter le site Internet de votre organisme local de réglementation.

L’Union européenne a présenté une législation permettant aux consommateurs d’engager des actions représentatives à travers l’UE. Cette législation devrait être implémentée dans la législation locale d’ici la fin du mois de décembre 2022 et nous mettrons à jour le présent récapitulatif en indiquant les droits supplémentaires au fur et à mesure de leur mise en œuvre.

Redução do negócio jurídico

Se qualquer disposição nestes Termos for considerada ilegal, inválida ou inexequível, no todo ou em parte, essa disposição ou parte dela, na medida em que seja ilegal, inválida ou inexequível, será considerada como não integrando estes termos e a legalidade, validade e exequibilidade do restante destes Termos não serão afetadas.

O “Stewardship Code” do Reino Unido

Em julho de 2010, o Financial Reporting Council do Reino Unido publicou “The UK Stewardship Code”. Este Código compreende um conjunto de orientações destinadas a melhorar as formas em que os investidores institucionais interagem com as administrações das empresas nas quais investem. Além disso, propõe medidas para aumentar o nível de transparência em torno das atividades dos investidores institucionais, na qualidade de acionistas, para benefício dos clientes subjacentes dos investidores.

Esta secção dos Termos explica como a Barclays Investment Solutions Limited trata as medidas propostas nestas orientações.

A gestão de investimento é realizada por investidores profissionais no Reino Unido em nome do Barclays Investment Solutions Limited. A atividade de gestão de investimento é predominantemente realizada sob a forma de mecanismos multigestor e fundos de fundos. Ou seja, optamos por subcontratar a seleção de ativos, incluindo ações, a outros gestores de investimento, investindo num fundo ou oferecendo a vários gestores uma parte do dinheiro que obtemos para o investimento dos investidores de fundos subjacentes. Selecionamos estes gestores através de um processo exaustivo de análise, cujo enfoque em cada caso é a identificação de um gestor que acreditamos consegue gerar o melhor retorno ajustado ao grau de risco na classe de ativos ou estratégia em relação à qual pretendemos delegar essa gestão.

Como parte do processo de seleção de gestores e, de forma permanente, iremos considerar inúmeros fatores em torno da estratégia de investimento proposta pelo gestor e respetivo desempenho face a essa estratégia.

Em toda a nossa atividade de gestão de investimento no Reino Unido, a Barclays Investment Solutions Limited geralmente não exerce direitos de voto. No entanto, caso a Barclays Investment Solutions Limited exerça a sua prerrogativa de voto a favor ou contra uma determinada proposta será de uma forma consistente com os melhores interesses dos seus clientes. Não estamos por isso diretamente empenhados em observar o “Stewardship Code”, embora apoiemos os seus objetivos. O nosso objetivo principal na gestão de fundos é assegurar que selecionamos gestores e fundos que procuram maximizar os retornos do investidor dentro dos condicionalismos em que operam dada a sua especialização em particular.

Lei e foro para qualquer litígio

Estes Termos e quaisquer obrigações extracontratuais decorrentes ou a eles relacionadas regem-se pela lei Inglesa. Os tribunais de Inglaterra terão foro competente exclusivo para dirimir qualquer litígio resultante ou relacionado a este Acordo ou qualquer obrigação extracontratual decorrente ou relacionada a estes Termos.

Informações sobre a empresa e regulamentares importantes

Os fundos e subfundos distribuídos a qualquer momento estão devidamente registados para distribuição em Portugal junto do regulador local (a “CMVM”), no âmbito do quadro legal e regulamentar aplicável e conforme as informações disponíveis no respetivo website: www.cmvm.pt.

DIREITOS DO INVESTIDOR

De acordo com a Diretiva (UE) 2019/1160 ("CBDF"), determinadas infraestruturas locais relacionadas com o seu investimento num fundo OICVM devem ser facultadas aos investidores. Em relação ao seu investimento num fundo OICVM, a Barclays Investment Solutions Limited facultará aos investidores os seguintes serviços de infraestruturas locais:

(i) consulte a secção "Contactar-nos" nos Termos e Condições para obter informações sobre reclamações de investidores em jurisdições onde o seu investimento é comercializado;

(ii) visite o separador "Documentos" relevante para o(s) seu(s) investimento(s) para aceder ao prospeto, aos relatórios anuais e semestrais e aos documentos com as informações fundamentais destinadas aos investidores (KIID) relativos ao seu investimento

Estas infraestruturas ser-lhe-ão disponibilizadas num idioma oficial da sua jurisdição ou num idioma aprovado pela sua entidade reguladora local. Tenha em atenção que a Barclays Investment Solutions Limited irá disponibilizar informações relativas às infraestruturas disponíveis através do seu website, em papel ou, se adequado, através de outro suporte duradouro.

Todos os interessados têm de preencher um formulário de subscrição prescrito pelos administradores relativamente ao fundo. O formulário de subscrição acompanha o prospeto do fundo e dispõe os métodos pelos quais e a quem os montantes da subscrição devem ser enviados. Todos os acionistas terão o direito de exigir que a sociedade resgate as suas ações no fundo em qualquer dia de negociação através do fornecimento de um pedido de resgate ao administrador. Para obter mais informações, consulte o prospeto do fundo.

Se for titular de unidades do fundo e estas unidades estiverem registadas em seu nome no registo de acionistas, pode exercer determinados direitos de acionista. São apresentadas mais informações sobre os direitos dos acionistas no Prospeto e nos documentos de incorporação do Fundo.

DIREITOS DO INVESTIDOR AO ABRIGO DO CONTRATO COM O FUNDO

Como investidor num fundo OICVM, e, dependendo da forma como investiu, poderá ter determinados direitos de investidor decorrentes de um contrato entre si e o Fundo. Para obter mais informações sobre estes direitos, consulte o Prospeto, em particular, e a documentação contratual que preencheu para fazer o investimento.

DIREITOS ADICIONAIS DO INVESTIDOR DECORRENTES DAS LEIS LOCAIS

Dependendo da forma como investiu no Fundo, poderá ter direito a beneficiar de determinadas proteções nacionais e direitos a pedidos de indeminização decorrentes da legislação local. Para obter mais informações sobre esses direitos, consulte o website local de indemnização dos investidores, se disponível.

INDEMNIZAÇÃO COLETIVA

Além disso, caso considere que sofreu uma perda, pode ter o direito a pedir uma indemnização numa base coletiva, através de um mecanismo de indemnização coletiva que ficou disponível na sua jurisdição local. A disponibilidade de acesso a um mecanismo de indemnização coletiva local irá depender da jurisdição em que se encontra, da localização do contrato celebrado com o Fundo e da forma como investiu no Fundo. Para obter mais informações sobre esses direitos, consulte o website da entidade reguladora local.

A União Europeia introduziu legislação para apoiar a capacidade de os consumidores tomarem medidas representativas em toda a UE. Esta legislação deverá ser implementada nas leis locais até ao final de dezembro de 2022 e iremos atualizar este resumo com mais direitos à medida que estes surgirem.

Offshore Funds with Reporting Status

This page is intended for persons subject to UK tax who are invested in Offshore Funds which may have ‘Reporting Status’ under the UK tax rules for Offshore Funds.

Under the rules, a fund is obliged to publish, for each of its accounting years, details of Reported Income per share for any of its share classes that have Reporting Status.

Understanding the rules

The rules are complicated. If you have any concerns you should speak to your tax adviser. Barclays does not provide tax advice.

If a share class that you have invested in does have Reporting Status, it is important that you check whether it has any Reported Income for its accounting year (in excess of distributions made for that year) for which the fund’s ‘Fund Distribution Date’ - six months after the fund’s accounting year-end.

If a fund share class has, for its accounting year, an excess of Reported Income over actual distributions it has made, and you are deemed to be entitled to a share of that excess (to the extent that you owned shares as at the fund’s accounting year-end), you will need to include that share of the excess in your Tax Return, in addition to any distributions you actually received during the tax year. As indicated above, your share of the deemed distribution will be taxed on you for the UK tax year in which the ‘Fund Distribution Date’, 6 months after the fund’s year-end, falls.

Distributions actually received are included in your Tax Pack issued by Barclays, as usual. Any disposals you have made out of interests in offshore funds with Reporting Status should also appear in your Tax Pack, as usual. However (as well as needing to add, to income actually received, any deemed income as above in your Tax Return), you will also need to adjust your CGT computation for any deemed income, in order to avoid double taxation.

If you want to find out if a particular share class has Reporting Status

You can check the HMRC “List of Reporting Funds A-Z"

Tax Advice

The UK tax rules under the regime are highly complex and can materially affect your Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax (“CGT”) positions.

If you are invested in an Offshore Fund which does not have Reporting Status (or which has not had Reporting Status and/or ‘Distributor Status’ under the predecessor UK tax regime for Offshore Funds at any time when you owned interests in it), the tax consequences for you could be different.

We strongly recommend that you consult your tax adviser, and provide them with your Tax Pack to help you complete your Tax Return.
