There will be a conflict of interest if Anchor can make a profit and, in turn, there is also a possible damage to a customer; or if a customer can make a profit or avoid a loss, while there is a possibility of concomitant loss of another customer.
Anchor has a policy of preventing potential conflicts of interest between its clients and Anchor, including its directors and employees, directly or indirectly; or between the different interests of two or more of its clients, towards each of whom Anchor has obligations.
The objective is the permanent detection and updating of situations of real or potential conflicts of interest and to prevent such situations from occurring or that, in the event that this is not possible, an adequate management of the conflicts of interest produced is carried out, in accordance with the provisions of current regulations, through a registration and communication procedure within the organization.
If the measures adopted by the Company are not sufficient to guarantee, with reasonable certainty, that risks of damage to the interests of clients will be avoided, the Company will inform those affected of the origin and nature of the conflict. The Company may only develop the services or operations in which the conflict of interest is manifested when the clients expressly consent to it.
