Conflict Of Interest Policy

Updated May 2024


  • As market leaders in the industry, we understand the confidential nature of the services we provide. Our aim is to put our clients at ease and create a safe space where information can be shared freely, but also protected to the highest degree.
  • We work with a number of different clients within the Agriculture industry and as such, it is imperative to us that our clients are comfortable in the knowledge that we conduct our business fairly, both between ourselves and our clients and between one client and another.
  • Therefore, we have put in place “appropriate” steps within our business (some which are set out within this policy) that help us to identify and manage potential conflicts of interest, so that the appropriate course of action can be followed before a problem detrimental to a client, or to us arises.

General Principles

  • There are a number of principles we follow to ensure your information is kept confidential and safe at all times. These include, but are not limited to:
    • effective procedures to prevent or control the exchange of information between members of our staff, where the exchange of such information may harm the interests of one or more of our clients;
    • separate supervision of staff whose principal functions involve carrying out such activities on behalf of, or providing services to, clients whose interests may conflict, or who otherwise represent different interests that may conflict, including those of the Company;
    • having in place an internal Confidentiality Policy which governs the dissemination of confidential information within our Company and between us and our affiliates;
    • Chinese walls restricting the flow of confidential information within the Company and between us and our affiliates and physical separation of departments; and
    • having in place a Privacy Policy governing access to electronic data.
  • The requirements of employees to comply with the Company’s policies for managing the confidentiality of our clients are part of the mandatory internal obligations of all staff and failure to comply with such policies may result in disciplinary procedures being invoked.
  • If you would like any more information on the procedures or internal policies we have in place, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
  • This Policy is not intended to, and does not, create third party rights or duties that would not otherwise exist had the policy not been made available, nor does it form part of an agreement between the Company and the client.
