The organisation has a Conflict of Interest Policy that covers all individuals and the wider organisation.
This Conflict of Interest Policy forms an integral part of the Code of Conduct and addresses the conduct of investment and other personnel of the fund manager. It also deals with a number of related matters, including the requirements imposed on the regulators in South Africa (Financial Sector Conduct Authority) and Namibia (Namibia Financial Institutions Supervisory Authority). In addition, certain rules may apply to individuals (in managing conflicts) by professional associations or by virtue of their specific role within the organisation.
The objective of the Conflict of Interest Policy is to protect the fund manager and investors, against inadvertent breaches of these requirements and, in the event of a breach, to demonstrate that all reasonable precautions had been taken. The policy also protects all individuals by minimizing as much as possible the risk of inadvertent breaches and from the appearance of profiting from knowledge or presumed knowledge gained at the fund manager.
