ISPT has a dedicated Conflict of Interest Policy which sets out our approach to managing situations where certain Parties within the organisation encounters either an ethical or material conflict between their own personal or private interests, and their duties to act in the interests of ISPT. The policy covers all ISPT Directors, Employees (including key investment staff) and Independent Contractors, who are required to confidentially disclose their personal or private interests on an annual basis.
The ISPT Board has governance processes in place to address any conflicts of interest in the voting process. Potential Conflicts of Interest are presided over by the Compliance Conflict Committee – a Committee of the Board. These processes ensure appropriate delegation levels for approvals while enforcing a level of functional separation between certain business activities.
