The management of conflicts involves taking all reasonable steps to prevent conflicts from giving rise to a material risk of damage to the interests of clients, through maintaining and operating effective organisational and administrative arrangements. Where conflicts are identified as having arisen we seek to manage and control them as appropriate to the circumstances. In accordance with these guidelines Mintus has the following principles:
- Where possible, clients’ interests will at all times be protected and preferred to the Mintus’ interests.
- Clients’ interests where possible will at all times be protected and preferred to third-party interests.
- Where conflicts between clients arise, Mintus will attempt to treat both clients fairly.
- Conflict of Interest issues are disclosed and minimised.
- Mintus operates a policy of transparency through disclosure.
- Employees are asked to disclose conflicts, upon employment and annually.
- To prevent or limit any person from exercising inappropriate influence over the way in which a relevant person carries out investment or ancillary services or investment activities.
- To prevent or control the exchange of information between relevant persons where the exchange of that information may harm the interests of one or more clients.
