Corruption is fraudulent, unethical and punishable by heavy criminal and administrative penalties. Violations of anti-corruption regulations are, by their very nature, serious and can lead to damage to Seeyond's reputation.
Seeyond is committed to carrying out its business with integrity in order to guard against any form of influence from peddling and corruption.
Un conflit d’intérêts est une situation dans laquelle la société de gestion exerce des activités dont la réalisation peut porter atteinte aux intérêts des clients si l’organisation mise en place n’est pas appropriée. Pour Seeyond, la détection, la prévention et la gestion du risque de conflits d'intérêts passent par la mise en place d'une organisation spécifique décrite dans le document ci-dessous.
In an effort to preserve the long-term interest of its shareholders and in accordance with the recommendations of the AFG charter, Seeyond has chosen to deploy the swing-pricing mechanism.
The implementation of swing pricing only applies to funds that benefit from this mechanism. Holders can consult the prospectus for more information.
The table below illustrates the funds for which Seeyond has set up swing pricing.

|Seeyond Actions CAC 40|
A holder who subscribes or repurchases an amount below the trigger threshold is not guaranteed to be executed on a non-swung net asset value (NAV). In fact, the crossing of a trigger threshold is assessed globally by taking into account the total amount collected, i.e. the net balance of subscriptions/redemptions of all holders.
Furthermore, Seeyond can modify the parameters of the swing pricing mechanism at any time, particularly in the event of a crisis on the financial markets.
Finally, a Frequently Asked Questions section aims at answering the various questions of the holders concerning the functioning and impacts of the mechanism. It applies to professional and non-professional clients within the scope of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID).
