The term “conflict of interest” refers to where your interests and the interests of Huntswood and/or the client are at odds with each other.

None of the information received during our business dealings may be used for personal gain or any purpose except that for which it is given.

Huntswood recognises that there may be times when your personal relationships may be perceived as a conflict of interest. For clarity, there is can be a thin line between a conflict of interest and a personal conflict.
