SFDR Disclosures

Knight Capital B.V. | SFDR website disclosures
In order to comply with the sustainable finance disclosure regulation (SFDR)¹, Knight Capital B.V. (Knight Capital) makes the following disclosures.

Integration of sustainability risks
A sustainability risk means:
"an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or potential material negative impact on the value of the investment"
Before any investment decisions are made on behalf of a fund that Knight Capital manages, an investment decision process is followed which in regard to specific investments includes the approval of the investment committee of such fund. Knight Capital views ESG as a standard topic in the pre-investment process. Part of the investment decisions process is that Knight capital assesses the risks attached to a potential investment opportunity, which includes sustainability risks. Identified sustainability risks are considered by Knight Capital
when making investment decisions.

In addition, the remuneration policy of Knight Capital takes into account compliance with its policies and procedures and discourages excessive risk-taking among others in relation to sustainability risks. Employees are made aware of the applicable policies and procedures when starting their employment with Knight Capital.

No consideration of sustainability adverse impacts
In accordance with article 4 sub 1 (b) of the SFDR, Knight Capital states that it does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors as set forth in article 4 sub 1 (a) of the Disclosure Regulation and therefore does not make the disclosures as described in article 4 sub 1 (a) of the SFDR. Given the small size of the organisation of Knight Capital, such disclosure as set forth in article 4 sub 1 (a) of the SFDR and the administrative burden in connection therewith would not be proportional.
