INTER-SERV adheres to
internationally accepted standards on client due diligence when accepting new
clients. Ultimately this is aimed at keeping our client base clean from persons
involved in money laundering, other criminal activities and from persons engaged
in activities that might otherwise be potentially harmful for our good
reputation. We strongly believe that in doing so we ultimately protect the good
reputation of our clients as well in the best possible way. Strict
compliance with all relevant laws, rules and regulations on client due diligence
is therefore not only a necessity but is also in the best interest of our
clients. Professionally trained staff with expertise in this area are available
in all offices and help our relationship managers with asking prospective and
existing clients to provide us with the relevant information on their identity,
their activities and financial background.
Within our group, we retain records
relating to our professional services, accessible to our staff, to assist us in
servicing your requirements and, in some cases, to administer our business or to
comply with professional standards. We maintain physical, electronic, and
procedural safeguards for your personal non-public information that comply with
our professional standards.
our standards of confidentiality are also backed by the Professional Secrecy
Act which has established a high common standard of confidentiality for all
professional practitioners. Those who violate professional secrecy may be
prosecuted under Section 27 of the Criminal Code and on conviction may be
liable to a maximum fine of LM20,000 and/or a 2 year prison sentence. All
disclosures ordered by the Court if expressly provided by law remain 'in
camera' and are accessible only by the court and the parties.
If you have further questions
regarding the confidentiality of your personal information, please contact any
INTER-SERV advisor with whom you have worked.
