Modern Slavery Statement
This statement is made by Symmetry Investments UK LLP (“Symmetry UK”) pursuant to section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) and in respect of the financial year ended 31 December 2022.
Business and Organisational Structure
Symmetry Investments LP and its affiliates (collectively, “Symmetry”) is a global alternative investment manager that seeks to integrate fixed income arbitrage with global macro strategies. Symmetry UK is a sub-investment manager to Symmetry.
Symmetry UK is a limited liability partnership incorporated in England and Wales and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority to carry on investment management activities.
Symmetry employs a workforce comprising employees, independent contractors and consultants who perform business and non-core functions. Most of these staff carry out highly-skilled activities and therefore the risk of these individuals being subject to Modern Slavery is very low.
As a financial services business we have a limited supply chain comprised mostly of professional services companies such as institutional financial firms, financial data providers and information technology service companies that employ skilled labour in developed financial markets where the risk of Modern Slavery in such supply chains is low.
Symmetry also receives services for certain non-core functions (for example office cleaning, catering and building facilities services) that may pose a higher risk of Modern Slavery.
We expect all of our suppliers to adhere to all applicable laws in conducting their businesses and to operate a fair and ethical workplace for their staff. Symmetry will not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking within its supply chain and, where applicable, we have contacted suppliers to remind them of our values and ethical standards.
Awareness and Training
We have existing policies in place that are relevant to addressing Modern Slavery, including a Staff Handbook, a Whistleblowing policy and policies related to the prevention of money laundering, bribery and corruption. Staff receive periodic training on modern slavery to ensure they remain vigilant and we expect any concerns about modern slavery to be raised via our Whistleblowing policy.
This statement has been approved by Symmetry’s senior management.
