01.4. Describe your organisation’s investment principles and overall investment strategy, interpretation of fiduciary (or equivalent) duties,and how they consider ESG factors and real economy impact.

We strongly believe that we should work in the - long term - interest of the clients that have a mandate with us. This is translated in a maximum allignment of interests between our clients and ourselves, a persuit of a good financial return for our clients while limiting the potential drawdowns. The maximum allignment is obtained by limiting our revenues to the management fee we charge (so no "top up of custody, transaction or other fees, nor hidden costs). We believe that in the longer term we serve our clients well by investing in companies / countries that score well on an ESG level as we believe that it offers returns that are at least similar to "traditional" investments while reducing the potential drawdown. Moreover there is the aditional "bonus" of trying to contribute to a "better , fairer world"

SG 03. Conflicts of interest

03.1. Indicate if your organisation has a policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.

03.3. Additional information. [Optional]

We have no formal, written policy as we believe potential conflicts are minimal for the reasons described below. The investement committee would internally discuss if there might be a potenial conflict of interest and if necessairy escalate towards the board of Orcadia.

Reasons why we believe that potential conflicts are minimal;

  • we are a small company and none of the invesment managers (nor the board members for that matter) have mandates in companies in which we (might) invest 
  • we receive no inducements from funds in which we might invest. If in an individual line would recieve a placement fee this is incorporated in the price for the client in full
  • no markup for transactions nor custodian fees (the client pays directly to the custodian)
  • no investment banking activities

SG 04. Identifying incidents occurring within portfolios (Private)
