Information barriers & conflicts of interest
Our business centres around people and trust. Only by acting with professionalism and integrity can we maintain our stakeholders’ confidence and preserve our company’s reputation. ING conducts its business to the principle that it identifies and manages conflicts of interest, between itself and its clients, one client and another, a client and ING employees and between itself and ING employees. The ING policy on Conflicts of Interest sets out mandatory principles aimed at identifying and managing these conflicts of interests and ensuring that confidential and inside information are properly dealt with.
Any person not being a third party working for or on behalf of ING Bank, on contract or temporary, including Senior Management and members of the Executive Board, Management Board Banking and the Supervisory Board must not put themselves in a position in which their personal interests, financial or otherwise, might influence or give the foreseeable appearance of influencing any action they take, judgment they make, or advice they give on behalf of ING.
