Describe your policy on managing potential conflicts of interest in the investment process.
It is our policy to identify the conflicts of interest that may exist between a) ourselves or anyone linked to the Firm and our clients or b) one client and another. We must ensure that clients are not adversely affected by potential risks. Therefore we document the arrangements we have put in place to manage the conflicts identified which create a material potential risk of damage to the interests of one or more clients. We take all reasonable steps to prevent conflicts of interest from constituting or giving rise to a material risk of damage to the interests of our clients. Where the potential risk can not be effectively managed with reasonable confidence to prevent the risk, we disclose this to our client before providing services. We make disclosure in a durable medium; providing sufficient detail to enable that client to take an informed decision with respect to the service in the context of which the conflict of interest arises.
