Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (“SFDR”)
Pursuant to EU Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 November 2019 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (the “SFDR”), AQA Capital Limited (“AQA” or the “Company “) is required to disclose the manner in which sustainability factors are integrated into the investment decisions and the assessment of the likely impacts of sustainability risks.
No consideration of sustainability adverse impacts
Presently when making investment decisions, the Company does not consider the adverse impacts of its investment decisions on sustainability factors in terms of the SFDR.
By taking into consideration the Company’s size, the nature and scale of its activities and the types of clients it has onboarded and their investment strategy, the Company considers that it would be disproportionate to consider principal adverse impacts as set out in the PAI regime in the SFDR. The Company may possibly consider such adverse impacts in respect of future mandates.
Although the Company does not currently integrate sustainability risks in its investment decision making processes, the Company may, in respect of other clients which may be onboarded in future, incorporate ESG considerations and make an assessment of sustainability risks to the extent relevant to (i) the nature of the investment management services and (ii) the appetite of the Company’s clients.
The Company will keep its decision not to consider the adverse impacts of its investment decisions on sustainability factors, under regular review, and will re-evaluate the decision at least annually.

Alignment of Remuneration Policy with sustainability investments
In line with our Remuneration Policy, no variable remuneration is paid to our staff unless it is determined to be justified following a performance assessment based on quantitative (financial) as well as qualitative (non-financial) criteria.
Due to this very limited impact on the risk-profile of our clients, as well as the nature of our business, we deem that there is no risk of misalignment with the integration of the sustainability risks in our investment decision making process with respect to our clients.
As such, we believe that our existing structures are sufficient to prevent excessive risk taking in respect of sustainability risks
The Remuneration Policy can be found on the Company’s website.
