Permira has internal policies and procedures that seek to ensure that actual and potential conflicts of interest are identified, to reduce the instances when conflicts of interest arise and address conflicts that do arise in a way that protects and deals fairly with the interests of those involved. These policies are part of the governance arrangements by which the firm operates and are also required by the regulators in the jurisdictions in which Permira operates (further information provided below).
There is a conflicts of interest policy and policies on personal securities dealing and directorships, confidentiality and security of information. The conflicts of interest policy sets out potential conflicts that may arise, Permira's approach to managing potential conflicts of interest and procedures that must be followed in the event of any conflict. The securities dealing policy prohibits dealing in listed securities by any Permira employee. All policies are approved by the ExCo and the Permira Holidings Limited Board. Permira employees are required to acknowledge that they have read and understood the policies through ComplySci, a compliance monitoring software tool.
