Code of Conduct
Alter Domus' Code of Business Conduct and Ethics lays down the principles and practices that are binding for all of our employees and Board members to follow unreservedly both in letter and in spirit.
The principles and standards set out in the Code characterise all our
business activities and all our dealings with our stakeholders,
including clients, colleagues, shareholders, regulators and business
partners. These principles and standards form the basis for all of our
policies, guidelines and procedures relating to the appropriate and
responsible corporate behaviour expected of our employees.
Our Code of Conduct is organised into five categories containing
guiding principles that should be used by everyone within Alter Domus to
guide our behaviour across all areas of our activity:
- Your responsibilities
Working with one another
Working with clients and others
Acting with professional integrity
Maintaining our objectivity and independence
Every employee contributes to the process of compliance, it is the
responsibility of all our employees to familiarise themselves with the
contents of the code and also with any other more detailed Policies and
Procedures that may directly affect them or their work.
Each of us is expected to behave accordingly to the principles
contained in the Code of Conduct. We encourage consultation and the
seeking of advice, as appropriate, from the resources available to
assist in the application of this code as it is our responsibility as
management to ensure that all firms and employees worldwide understand
and comply with this code of conduct.
We take our code of conduct very seriously and it is also important
for everybody to be aware that any breach of it will be subject to
disciplinary action - up to and including dismissal.
Our clients are the reason we exist and they rely on us to help them
succeed in their business goals and ambitions. To earn and maintain
their trust we are committed to carrying out our business fairly,
honestly, legally and ethically wherever we operate around the world.
Our code of conduct that we adhere to provides the ethical framework on
which we base our decisions, as individuals and as members of our global
