An important part of our obligations to treat our clients fairly lies in how we handle complaints. We have a complaints policy designed to help us carry out those duties and comply with applicable regulations.

While we seek to resolve any dissatisfaction with our services through regular dialogue with our clients, we recognise that there may be times when feedback will take the form of an explicit and formal complaint.

There are two firms in the J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) group that are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom and follow the FCA’s rules on complaints handling:

  • J O Hambro Capital Management Limited, a MiFID1 firm, which provides investment management and advisory services to segregated account clients, and
  • JOHCM Funds (UK) Limited, a UCITS2 management company, which serves as the Authorised Corporate Director (ACD)3 of our UK-domiciled Open-Ended Investment Company (OEIC)4 fund range.

The Board of Directors of each firm has ultimate accountability for how the respective firm addresses any complaint. Each firm has assigned day-to-day responsibility to the Compliance team, which runs the JOHCM group’s Complaints Management Function in accordance with the complaints policy.
