A conflict of interest is a situation in which someone in a position of trust has competing professional or personal interests. Such competing interests can make it difficult to fulfil his or her duties impartially. A conflict of interest may exist even if no unethical or improper act results from it.
Angel Corporate Finance is committed to identifying, monitoring and managing all actual and potential conflicts of interest that can arise between us and our clients and between clients of all areas of our Group.
During your investment conflicts of interest may arise between you and us, our employees, our associated companies or our representatives.
To ensure we treat investors consistently and fairly, we’re required to have a policy on how to identify and manage these conflicts.
A summary of our policy is detailed below. A copy of the full policy is available on request from Angel Corporate Finance.
- will consider the interests of all of our customers and treat them fairly;
- will manage conflicts of interest fairly to ensure that all customers are treated consistently and to prevent any conflicts of interest from giving rise to a material risk of damage to the interests of our customers;
- have in place procedures to ensure that staff identify and report any new conflicts;
- will keep a written record of any conflicts or potential conflicts;
- if appropriate, will disclose any relevant conflicts to a customer before undertaking business with that customer;
- will carry out an annual review to identify any new conflicts; and
- will ensure new business developments identify any new conflicts of interest.
This policy applies to any company we may delegate any of our functions to.
If there is no other way of managing a conflict, or where the measures in place do not sufficiently protect your interests as a client, the conflict will be disclosed to allow you to make an informed decision on whether to continue using our service in the situation concerned.
