Anti Bribery & Corruption Policy


Introduction

The Pluralists Club values its reputation for ethical behaviour and for financial probity and reliability. It recognises that over and above the commission of any crime, any involvement in bribery will also reflect adversely on its image and reputation. Its aim therefore is to limit its exposure to bribery by:


The Policy

The Pluralists Club Ltd prohibits the Board of Directors:

the offering, the giving, the solicitation, or the acceptance of any bribe, whether cash or other inducement to or from any person or company, wherever they are situated and whether they are a public official or body or private person or company by any individual staff member, consultant, agent or other person or body acting on the Board of Directors behalf in order to gain any commercial, contractual or regulatory advantage for the Board of Directors in a  way which is unethical or in order to gain any personal advantage, pecuniary or otherwise, for the individual or anyone  connected with the individual

Further Clarification

The Board of Directors recognises that market practice varies across the territories in which it does business and what is normal and acceptable in one place may not be in another. This policy prohibits any inducement which results in a personal gain or advantage to the recipient or any person or body associated with them, and which is intended to influence them to take action which may not be solely in the interests of the Club or of the person or body employing or contracting with them or whom they represent.

This policy is not meant to prohibit the following practices providing they are customary in a particular market, are proportionate and are properly recorded

Inevitably, decisions as to what is acceptable may not always be easy. If anyone is in doubt as to whether a potential act constitutes bribery, the matter should be referred to the Director with responsibility for this policy before proceeding. If necessary, guidance should also be sought from the Compliance Officer.

The prevention, detection and reporting of bribery is the responsibility of all personnel.  Suitable channels of communication by which personnel or others can report confidentially any suspicion of bribery will be maintained via the Anti­Corruption Reporting procedures.

When you've achieved success in business the best reward is being able to chose what you do and when, and be properly rewarded for it. The Pluralists Club is the place to build a new work-life balance while enjoying good company, new perspectives, and developing new portfolio strands.
