While ethics is not law and is very difficult to define, most people know what constitutes unethical behavior.
We believe that a Mergers & Acquisitions firm is only as good as its reputation, and a good reputation can result only from a history of ethical business practice.
The “Golden Rule” is how we describe ethical behavior, and that is the standard that we strive to attain in our daily business practices: “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You.”
Calder Capital’s Code of Ethics enshrines, but is not limited to, the following standards of practice:
- Loyalty: Calder Advisors owe their undivided loyalty to the client and must put the client’s interest above its own. This means that Calder Advisors will never recommend working with a buyer or accepting an offer to benefit themselves. Calder Advisors understand that if they put forth the right intentions and effort, the right reward will follow.
- Agency: Calder Advisors will represent only one client in a transaction. In the rare event that Calder would represent the buyer and seller, both buyer and seller would be fully informed and consent to such a relationship prior to the engagement.
- Confidentiality: Calder Advisors will hold the client’s information in the strictest of confidence and will not disclose confidential information except to buyers who have executed a strict non-disclosure agreement.
- Disclosure: Calder Advisors must disclose any information that may benefit the client.
- Care: Calder Advisors must use all skills to the best of their ability to benefit the client.
