FRAUD WARNING

From time to time fraudsters may try to pass themselves off as CBPE Capital. Such frauds may involve e-mail communications purporting to come from CBPE Capital, or referring potential victims to a website purporting to belong to CBPE Capital. If you have any doubts about the authenticity of any persons purporting to represent CBPE Capital, we recommend that you thoroughly check out their credentials. Alternatively you can contact the FCA, the UK financial services regulator. You may also wish to refer to the “Warnings and Alerts” page of the FCA’s website for details of the latest known frauds.

 DISCLOSURE POLICY

We welcome the Guidelines for Disclosure and Transparency in Private Equity issued by the Guidelines Monitoring Group (the Walker Guidelines). The Guidelines make recommendations in three areas:

  • disclosures by portfolio companies above certain size thresholds;
  • disclosures by the private equity firms which manage the investments in such companies; and
  • recommendations for the BVCA, including greater collection and dissemination of industry-wide data.

CBPE Capital does not manage investments in any portfolio companies to which the Guidelines apply and so the disclosure requirements on us as a firm also do not apply. However, we have voluntarily sought to comply with the Guidelines wherever possible. In particular this website includes:

A description of CBPE Capital LLP (which is authorised and regulated by the FCA), its history, investment approach and investment holding periods, illustrated with case studies:

  • the names and brief CVs of all the partners and executives of CBPE Capital;
  • a description of our significant portfolio companies; and
  • a description of our funds and our investors.

Additionally we confirm that:

  • appropriate arrangements are in place to deal with conflicts of interest. CBPE Capital is a pure fund manager and has no corporate advisory capability;
  • reporting to limited partners is of the utmost importance to us and we have regard to the EVCA reporting guidelines;
  • valuations are prepared having regard to the IPEVC valuation guidelines; and
  • we are complying fully with the BVCA’s enhanced data collection programme.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST

CBPE Capital has a policy for managing any conflicts of interests that may arise between the interests of its investors, the companies it invests in, its staff and management. The policy identifies the potential conflicts and how these are managed to achieve fairness between all parties. A copy of the policy is available to all investors.
