CIP Terms of Business
Castlefield Investment Partners LLP Terms of Business
These Terms of Business have been written in accordance with the rules of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and are legally binding on any investment business we do for you. Before agreeing to them it is important that you take as much time as you need to read them, think about their implications and ask us about anything you feel is unclear.
Changes to our Terms of Business
We’re making the following changes to our Terms of Business:
- We’re updating our variation clause, which will allow us to update these terms immediately in future via publication on our website. We’ll still give you 30 days’ notice before the amendment(s) come into effect. Where we think that the proposed change is material to the provision of our services to you, we’ll notify you directly as well.
- On 31st December 2020, we ceased our membership of the London Stock Exchange (LSE), which means that we no longer have the option to execute orders directly on the exchange. Instead we’ll continue to place orders via a number of third parties with whom we have agreements, who’ll then execute on our behalf. This is broadly how we’ve operated since 03/01/2018 and we’re happy that it now proves LSE membership to be unnecessary. This does not affect the ongoing provision of service to our clients. Further details can be found in the section ‘Carrying out your investment transactions’.
- We’ve updated our disclosure documents. New clients will now receive an individually prepared document known as the ‘Schedule of Charges’, with the aim of providing a clear and transparent disclosure of costs and charges associated with the relevant service. Previously, this information was incorporated within the Client Information Form, which is completed by all new clients.
- We’ve updated the ‘Stewardship and Engagement’ section to explain further our specialism in this area and how this relates to our participation in the UK Stewardship Code and your voting rights as a shareholder.
- We’ve updated the contact details for the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). It requests that enquiries are made via electronic means where possible.
- We’ve updated the relevant sections where there’s been an amendment as a result of the UK leaving the EU.
- Finally, as a result of recent changes to regulation, you now have the option of electing for an individual segregated account in relation to the custody of your assets. You’ll find further details in the section ‘Custody and related administration of your investments’.
