Insider administration


Mandatum plc’s Board of Directors has approved Mandatum Group’s (“Mandatum”) Insider Policy which takes into account the Group’s business area and extensive investment activities as well as listed company obligations. The policy is binding on all Mandatum Group employees and the members of the Board of Directors. The Insider Policy takes into account current supranational regulation, such as the Market Abuse Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 (MAR) of the European Parliament and of the Council), as well as applicable national regulation, including Nasdaq Helsinki’s Guidelines for Insiders and the Financial Supervisory Authority’s regulations, statements and interpretations. Mandatum Group’s Insider Policy is stricter than Nasdaq Helsinki’s guidelines for Mandatum’s Group Management Team and the Group employees who work on quarterly reports and other financial reports or who have access to the aforementioned documents prior to their publication, so that they cannot acquire or sell Mandatum’s financial instruments during the so-called closed window (30 day period before the release of a listed company’s financial reporting). Trading by these persons in any financial instrument is also restricted by a short-term prohibition, meaning that the time between the acquisition and sales or sales and acquisition of the same financial instrument must be at least 30 days. 

In addition to regulatory supervision, compliance with the obligations arising from the Insider Policy and the underlying legislation is supervised in Mandatum Group by the Insider Administration, a group function centralised in Mandatum plc and led by the person in charge of insider matters.

As a rule, Mandatum Group companies may not enter into agreements or transactions with their related parties on terms that differ from those normally applied by the Group company in question, or which are otherwise commercially unjustified or favourable to certain parties. All related party transactions must be agreed in writing and in the ordinary course of business. Mandatum Group’s related party transactions are typically related to purchases of internal services or related to other services or products that are part of the ordinary business of the Group company. Related party transactions that are not part of the company’s 
ordinary course of business or are carried out in deviation from customary commercial terms, require a decision by the Board of Directors before they are carried out. 

Mandatum Group maintains a register of Mandatum Group’s related parties and 
reported related party transactions. Related party transactions are reported annually to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors, and the Audit Committee monitors and evaluates how Mandatum and its related parties’ agreements, and other legal actions meet the requirements of belonging to 
Mandatum’s ordinary course of business and arm’s length principle.

Notifications (Managers' Transactions) as laid down in Article 19 of the Market Abuse Regulation can be found in Releases.
