LOUISE TO CONFIRM THIS TEXT FROM 2015 IS STILL ACCURATE:
The management of potential conflicts of interest is addressed in four OPTrust policies.
The SIP&P requires trustees, external investment advisors, OPTrust employees and all agents and advisors to act in the best interests of the Plan and its members. It details requirements to disclose all conflicts of interest and subsequent steps to manage conflicts. The SIP&P also outlines procedures to be followed in the event of conflicts between OPTrust's investment policy and that of our investment managers' pooled funds.
All OPTrust employees are required to follow the Code of Conduct which defines prohibited conduct, requirements for disclosure of real and perceived conflicts of interest and steps to managing any conflicts.
OPTrust has a Personal Trading Policy which provides rules for certain employees' personal trading activities and prohibits insider trading.
OPTrust's Ethical Wall Policies and Procedures also prohibits insider trading.
