Conflict of Interests
All employees of Zurich are expected to act without a conflict of interest. Where potential, perceived, or actual conflicts of interest arise, Zurich expects disclosures and mitigating actions to be adequate and effective.
A conflict of interest arises when an employee’s own personal interest (financial, social, political or otherwise), activity or relationship influences (or has the potential to influence) the interests of Zurich and business decisions.
Our Conflicts of Interest Policy sets out the Australian regulatory requirements for managing conflicts of interest and specifically conflicts of duty (collectively referred to as (‘Conflicts’) that arise when:
a) there is a clash between a personal interest and duty to the company;
b) an individual has competing duties to another party (for example to a customer) or to another company (even if the company is another Zurich entity).
