2. Remuneration Disclosure Requirements


i. Objectives of the Firm’s Financial Incentives

The Firm’s financial incentives aim to create a direct link between reward and performance and to incentivise staff in alignment with the Firm’s risk profile, including potential conflicts of interest. The Firm’s remuneration structure is evaluated regularly to ensure its continued alignment with relevant regulatory requirements. The objective of the remuneration structure is to align individual and team contributions with performance objectives in a manner that:

  • is consistent with and promotes sound and effective risk management;
  • does not encourage excessive risk taking;
  • recognises that the Firm has a sole client, TCP General Partner Limited, and therefore the Firm has a limited risk profile;
  • includes measures to avoid conflicts of interest in accordance with the Firm’s policies; and
  • is in line with the Firm’s business strategy, regulatory obligations, objectives, values, and long-term interests.

ii. Fixed and Variable Remuneration

Total remuneration is determined in light of:

  • individual performance; and
  • the results of the Firm as a whole.

The assessment of performance to determine variable remuneration takes into account financial as well as non-financial criteria. The non-financial criteria are intended to: (i) form a significant part of the performance assessment process; (ii) where appropriate, override financial criteria; (iii) consider the individual’s conduct and which will make up a substantial portion of the non-financial criteria; and (iv) evaluate the individual’s performance in relation to effective risk management and compliance with the Firm’s policies.

3. Remuneration Governance and Decision-making Procedures

The Firm has set up governance processes aimed at ensuring the oversight of rewards, management of any potential conflicts of interests, and the review of the alignment between reward and performance.

The Firm’s Remuneration Policy is reviewed and approved annually by the Firm’s Board. Remuneration decisions made by the Firm include application of relevant financial and non-financial criteria (as further described herein).

The Firm is a SNI Firm and does not have a remuneration committee.
