FRAUD PREVENTION POLICY
Fraud occurs whenever a person brings about a malicious behavior designed to create his own economic advantage and to disadvantage an investor. Therefore it is considered that the cases of fraud may derive from the following factors, for which are provided the following safeguards, without prejudice to the fact that the Fund will report to the Judicial Authority any situation susceptible to integrate the details of a fraud.
Fraud related to the bidder’s behavior
The Fund believes that the greater risk of fraud derives from the publication of false or incomplete information provided by the subjects qualifying as bidders (the "Offerors") in accordance with Article 2, paragraph 1, letter c) of CONSOB Regulation No. 18592 of June 26, 2013. The Fund, during the phase of investment selection, formally verifies the proposals of the bidders, aimed at evaluating the accuracy, completeness and transparency of the information provided during the preparation of the investments for the purpose of collection, possibly using of the work of external collaborators to confirm the actual.
Fraud related to financial transactions
The services relating to the execution of the investment orders on the fund and of the acceptance to the risk capital subscriptions, will be managed by the depositary bank with which the fund has drawn an operating agreement (the "Bank"). Therefore, in this context are applied all anti-intrusion measures implemented by the Bank.
Fraud related to the publication of information material
The fund publishes its investments on its portal (the "Portal") only after having done a careful evaluation of the investment projects, the benefit-risk ratio, the business plan and the lawfulness of the same. This allows the fund to carry out a correct and exact control on the contents of its investments, fully verifying the real prospects of success, highlighting in detail the positive and negative aspects of the investment. At the same time, checks are done on the lawfulness and truthfulness of the documents provided during the selection process. This verification will allow the investor to have an exact picture of the project in which he invests his savings, while avoiding the risks of fraud.
