Conflicts of Interest

In the course of our normal business activities we have the responsibility to deal fairly, honestly and in good faith with our clients, and to act in their interests. Many financial services companies act as a financial intermediary where they may at times act for both the buyer and the seller of a security. We recognize that there is the potential for conflicts of interest to arise between the interest of the clients, its advisors and the firm.

Accordingly, we have implemented policies and procedures designed to manage those potential conflicts, using three basic mechanisms to do so; depending on the circumstances we will either control the conflict, disclose the potential conflict to you in order for you to factor it into your decision making or, when there is serious potential impact to the firm or its clients, avoid it, usually by forgoing the business opportunity giving rise to the potential conflict.

Disclosure Statement – Conflicts of interest

Under certain circumstances we may deal with or for you in securities transactions where the issuer of the securities or the other party to the transaction is a firm or party having an ownership or business relationship with us. Since these transactions may create a conflict between our interests and yours, we are informing you of the relevant relationships and connections relating to the transactions. Any future unresolved material conflict of interest situations will be disclosed to you as they arise.

Important Concepts

A person or company is a “related issuer” of us if the person or company is an influential security holder of us if we are an influential security holder of the person or company or each of us and the person or company is a related issuer of the same third person or company.

A "connected issuer" is a party that is distributing securities and has a relationship with us that may lead a reasonable prospective purchaser of the securities to question if we and the issuer are independent of each other as respects the distribution of such securities.
