The Board of Liontrust strongly believes that retaining and appropriately incentivising an exceptional management team albeit on a highly competitive basis is in the best interests of all our stakeholders. As such, the Board was disappointed with the voting outturn with regards to the level of shareholder support of the Directors' Remuneration Policy (Resolution 1) and the adoption of the LTIP plan rules (Resolution 2).


Prior to the General Meeting, the Remuneration Committee (the "Committee") undertook extensive and positive engagement with our top 20 shareholders on the pay proposals for our Executive Directors. This included two rounds of engagement and consultation, and a number of amendments were made in response to these, among them the move to a more traditional annual LTIP structure rather than a one-off five-year plan and further stretch placed within the level of performance required to achieve maximum vesting under the LTIP. The Committee is committed to the highest levels of governance and reiterates that exceptional levels of short and long-term remuneration will only be received by the Executive Directors for exceptional corporate performance.


While the two resolutions were passed, the Remuneration Committee is acutely conscious of the votes against and will reflect on feedback from those shareholders. The Company will continue its policy of full transparency with proactive engagement with its shareholders on aspects of remuneration going forward. In line with the UK Corporate Governance Code, we will provide an update within six months of this General Meeting.


We thank all our shareholders for taking the time to consider the resolutions and providing feedback on our proposals.
