11 Applicable law and jurisdiction
Any dispute related to the use of the https://geneocapitalentrepreneur.com website is subject to French law. The competent courts of Paris shall have exclusive jurisdiction.
GENEO Capital Entrepreneur is subject to the 2011/61/EU Directive on Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM Directive). This, transposed into French law by Order 2013-676 published in the Official Journal on 27 July 2013, aims to create a harmonised framework for managers of alternative funds known as "AIF" in Europe while strengthening the protection of investors and savers. This Directive aims to increase the transparency of alternative investment fund (AIFM) managers subject to the AIFM Directive vis-à-vis their supervisory authorities, investors and other key players in order to strengthen investor confidence and to regulate the main sources of risk associated with alternative management.
The information contained on the GENEO Capital Entrepreneur website does not constitute an offer of products or services or a solicitation to buy or sell securities or other investment management products. It is presented for information purposes only and is not contractually binding.
GENEO Capital Entrepreneur manages FIAs reserved for professional or "informed" clients. Only this category of clients will have access to subscribe to our AIFs,
Investors are reminded that subscribing to units or shares of AIFs may involve risks, including the risk of capital loss. The value of investments may go down as well as up depending on market trends and the investor may not get back the amount invested, as the value of the units and shares depends on the value of the financial instruments held in the portfolio. The amount that is reasonable to invest in a fund depends on the investor's personal situation. To determine this, the investor must take into account his or her personal assets, current needs and whether he or she wishes to take risks or, on the contrary, to favour a prudent investment. It is also strongly recommended that investors diversify their investments so that they are not exposed solely to the risks of a single AIF. The tax treatment of investing in AIF units or shares depends on the individual situation of each investor and is subject to change.
2 ESG criteria applied in investment selection
GENEO Capital Entrepreneur strives to apply the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) recommended by the United Nations in the management of investments held by funds under management. Team members take every opportunity to integrate criteria relating to compliance with Environmental, Social and Governance Quality (ESG) objectives into the selection of investments as well as into the daily monitoring of risks and changes in the businesses of the companies in the portfolio. GENEO Capital Entrepreneur has signed the Charter of Commitment of France Invest, which is based on 4 pillars (economic, social and human, environment and governance), as well as the Code of Ethics, to get involved in the integration of ESG by French private equity players.
3 Managing conflicts of interest
In order to limit and manage conflict of interest situations, GENEO Capital Entrepreneur has formalised a set of rules and policies which are distributed to all employees, who undertake to respect them
These procedures are as follows:
- The Code of Ethics;
- A procedure for the personal transactions of employees;
- A procedure for investing the management company's own funds;
- An investment policy;
- A market abuse monitoring policy;
- A compensation policy for employees;
- A procedure for identifying and classifying the benefits and remuneration paid and received by the management company.
The business process for dealing with conflicts of interest is described in the Conflict of Interest Procedure
The management company shall make available to investors a summary of the policy for the prevention and management of conflicts of interest on request
4 Shareholder engagement policy

5 The treatment of investors' rights
5.1 Handling customer complaints
GENEO Capital Entrepreneur has established and maintains an operational procedure for the prompt and efficient handling of complaints from its clients. This procedure concerns all complaints, regardless of the client, the product or service in question and the nature of the complaint. A complaint is a statement of the customer's dissatisfaction with the trader. A request for information, advice, clarification, service or provision is not a complaint. The person in charge of handling complaints is Claire Alexandre.
You may contact the person in charge of handling complaints (i) by post with acknowledgement of receipt to GENEO Capital Entrepreneur, Service Réclamations, 9 rue Scribe, 75009 Paris, (ii) by e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org or (iii) by telephone on the following number 09 70 77 24 80.
Upon receipt of the claim, GENEO Capital Entrepreneur undertakes to send an acknowledgement of receipt within 10 working days, and a response within a maximum of two months. If a claim cannot be processed within this period (archives to be repatriated, documentary research, technical point), GENEO Capital Entrepreneur sends the client a letter to justify this additional delay.
GENEO Capital Entrepreneur does not itself have an internal mediation service. As a last resort or in the event of dissatisfaction, a complaint may be addressed free of charge to the Ombudsman of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers ("AMF") by mail to:
Ms Marielle Cohen-Branche
Autorité des marchés financiers,
17, place de la Bourse
75082 Paris Cedex 02.
The mediation request form and the mediation charter are available on the AMF website: https: //www.amf-france.org/fr/le-mediateur
5.2 Handling cross-border complaints
The funds we manage are marketed in several European Union countries; if you are not satisfied with the response to your complaint by GENEO Capital Entrepreneur, you can contact the European Union's network of financial mediators called FIN-NET, which is designed to facilitate the redirection of requests to the mediator with geographical jurisdiction. The AMF Ombudsman can assist you in this respect, if necessary.

6 Risk of low liquidity and investment in unlisted companies
The Company is mainly invested in Non-Listed Assets. These Assets are illiquid or illiquid. As a result, and although the management objective is to organise the realisation of its Assets under the best possible conditions, it cannot be excluded that the Company may experience difficulties in disposing of its assets within the desired timeframe and at the desired price level.
7 Remuneration policy
GENEO Capital Entrepreneur has a formalised remuneration policy which is communicated to all employees in accordance with the requirements of the AIFM Directive.
This policy is aimed at all employees of the company, including those considered as "risk takers". The company has set up a Remuneration Committee which is responsible for the annual review of the remuneration policy. The Remuneration Committee is composed of the Chairman and the CEO. It meets annually, following the annual employee appraisal campaign. The implementation of the remuneration policy is subject, at least once a year, to a central and independent internal evaluation to verify compliance with the remuneration policies and procedures. Also, and in accordance with the Disclosure Regulation, the policy sets out, among other things, rules on the consideration of risks, including sustainability, in the allocation of remuneration. Information on how the policy is adapted to the integration of sustainability risks can be found in the remuneration policy of GENEO Capital Entrepreneur.
