How we avoid conflicts of interest when selecting our rated products

Interactive investor has strict rules around personal investing by employees. It has additional rules that apply to employees or contractors who are involved in the research and production of research recommendations, presented through investment articles, rated funds (such as the Super 60), or model portfolios. 

Members and attendees of the firm’s investment governance arrangements (including both Executive and Board level committees) and who are privy to decision making related to new and changed recommendations are restricted from Personal Account Trading in any instrument that is the subject of those recommendations. Dealing restrictions apply from the date any such member or attendee is given or is otherwise made aware of the research recommendation and expires five working days following publication. 

In addition, in advance of any Personal Account Trading, they have to make a positive declaration in writing to the Compliance Department, which confirms that the trade does not create any conflict of interest or unfair advantage over ii’s customers.
