It describes the control objectives and measures, and an auditor also checks whether these are effective.
IBS Asset Management BV has been issued with an investment firm licence from the AFM (the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets). IBS Asset Management BV’s equity capital is more than sufficient to continuously meet the capital requirements of DNB (the central bank of the Netherlands).

No proprietary trading
IBS Asset Management BV does not have its own trading portfolio and does not take positions itself for trading reasons. IBS Asset Management BV only trades on its clients’ behalf and risk.
We apply a controlled remuneration policy that complies with the Dutch Remuneration Policy (Financial Enterprises) Act. There is no relationship between the returns achieved, the risk taken and the amount of variable remuneration. Variable remunerations are bound to a statutory maximum.
We also take sustainability and the associated risks into account. These sustainability risks relate to IBS itself, our employees, investment policy and customers. The degree to which these sustainability risks are controlled, affects part of the variable remuneration of employees and aims to create a positive effect on the management of sustainability risks. This variable remuneration fits within the framework of the Financial Enterprises Remuneration Policy Act.

Conflicts of Interest
In the context of (potential) conflicts of interest, we announce that, as part of its services, IBS Asset Management BV can also advise clients on investment companies managed by IBS Fund Management BV, provided that they are suitable for the clients.
