Following the introduction of the fourth Capital Requirements Directive, rules were introduced to the General Organisational Requirements, Senior Management Functions and Remuneration parts of the PRA Rulebook and the Senior Management Arrangements, Systems and Controls manual of the FCA Handbook. These require the Group to include a compliance statement on our website in relation to these rules. Our explanation of how we meet these requirements can be found in the document below, which covers (1) Governance (2) Remuneration and (3) Reporting. Further relevant details may be found in our latest Annual Report and Accounts and in our Directors’ biographies, all of which are on this website.

Virgin Money Unit Trust Managers LTD

Virgin Money Unit Trust Managers (VMUTM) does not directly employ any staff, other than its two independent non-executive directors. Staff are provided from both Virgin Money UK PLC and Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (the ultimate parent entities) on a secondment basis.

In accordance with the FCA’s UCITS Remuneration Code, VMUTM is required to establish and apply a remuneration policy for certain categories of staff whose activities have a material impact on the risk profile of VMUTM or the UK UCITS funds (“UCITS”) that it manages (UCITS Remuneration Code Staff or “Code Staff”). VMUTM applies the remuneration policies (the “Remuneration Policies”) of the parent entities in the secondment model.

The Remuneration Policies document the remuneration policies, practices and procedures of the parents and are reviewed annually.

Virgin Money plc

Virgin Money plc does not currently have any employees. However, the Company maintains a Remuneration Committee - comprised of independent Non-Executive Directors  - that is constituted in accordance with Article 95.

Virgin Money plc’s Non-Executive Directors are Material Risk Takers and their remuneration – consisting solely of fees – is managed within the requirements of CRD IV.   In the event that Virgin Money plc employs individuals in the future the Remuneration Committee will ensure that the Company complies in full with Articles 92 to 95 of CRD IV regarding remuneration.

Virgin Money does not benefit from government intervention, so Article 93 is not applicable to us.
