Information on Dealing with Conflicts of Interest

We impose high ethical standards on ourselves and our staff to prevent advisory services, order execution or asset management services being influenced by outside interests. We expect careful, honest, lawful and professional conduct at all times, compliance with market standards and, in particular, close attention to the interests of our clients. Our staff are required to comply with these standards and obligations.

We have an independent compliance office which reports directly to the management. lt is responsible for identifying, avoiding and managing conflicts of interest also in the matters concerning the investment process. We will disclose unavoidable conflicts of interest to the client affected before the conclusion of a transaction or before providing advisory services. Further details of the present principles and the handling of conflicts of interest are available on request.

03.3. Additional information. [Optional]

A conflict of interest may occur where the interest of a client is not the same as, or is not perceived to be the same as, that of your own organisation. This may relate to either the investment management business or other parts of the business.

A conflict of interest may sometimes arise in connection with a responsible investment matter. For example, acting in the interests of clients may indicate that an investor should choose to vote against management at a company or engage with that company; however, the pension fund of that company, or the company itself, may also be a client or potential client of the investor or another part of the investor’s parent organisation. In some markets investors are required under regulation or codes of good practice to have such policies in place. Examples include the US, the UK and South Africa.
