By accessing this website you agree to be bound by the following terms, including those related to our code of conduct.

Forward-Looking Statements


This website contains forward-looking statements and information suggesting future events or future performance, as they relate to Standard, its investments, or any affiliate of Standard.

In particular, this website contains forward-looking statements with respect to, among other things, listed companies; their management teams and controlling shareholders ; their operational and financial performances; their business strategies, future prospects, asset quality, cash-flows, valuations and dividends paid to shareholders; their operational and credit risks; their capital investments and expenditure programs, and the funding thereof; and any other finance-related terms. Statements relating to value and valuations are also deemed to be forward‐looking statements, as they involve implied assessments based on certain estimates and material assumptions.

Any of those forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties which could cause results or events to differ from current expectations. Should one or more of those risks or uncertainties materialize, or should assumptions underlying forward-looking statements prove incorrect, actual results may in fact differ very materially from those described in this website.

Modern Slavery Act


We are absolutely committed to conducting business in a responsible and ethical manner. We take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we expect the same high standards and commitment from those we do business with. We consider the risk of modern slavery existing within our business to be low, and we have never identified any examples of modern slavery within our business or supply chain, including within the last twelve months.

We have implemented a number of internal policies and procedures with the aim of ensuring that effective systems and controls are in place to prevent slavery and human trafficking from occurring in any part of our business. We promote a culture of integrity, and have established principles for how we deal with our clients, employees and the public. These include the values and rules set out in our policies, which seek to foster a safe, healthy and productive workplace, and to maintain accountability at all levels of the organisation. Employees, consultants and all affiliates are encouraged to report any compliance concerns they may have to management.

We always take a risk-based approach to our assessment of suppliers. As our arrangements with suppliers come up for renewal, we will endeavour to include obligations in our commercial agreements requiring suppliers and their sub-contractors to comply with the Act. We will also endeavour to reserve audit and termination rights in our supplier agreements, for situations in which we have reasonable evidence to suggest that a supplier is in breach of the Act.

Anti-Bribery Act


Standard’s policy is to conduct all business in an honest and ethical manner. A zero-tolerance approach is taken to bribery and corruption. Standard is committed to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity in all of its business dealings and relationships wherever it operates, and implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery and corruption. It expects the same from those it works with.



Although they vary by country and entail specific dispositions in each case, whistleblower policies are essential tools for protecting individuals who report activities believed to be illegal, dishonest, unethical, or otherwise improper. Standard actively encourages such policies as they relate to the company, its investments, or any affiliate of the company.
