Subject 5. Ethical vs. Legal Standards
#cabra-session #ethical-vs-legal-standards #ethics #has-images #reading-rene-toussaint

Laws often codify ethical actions that lead to better outcomes for society or specific groups of stakeholders. Legal and ethical conduct often coincide, but they are not always the same.

  • Some legal behaviors are not considered ethical.

  • Some ethical behaviors may not be legal in certain countries.

Laws and regulations are not always the best mechanism to reduce unethical behavior. They often lag behind current circumstances; legal standards are often created to address past ethical failings and do not provide guidance for an evolving and increasingly complex world. In addition, new laws designed to reduce or eliminate conduct that adversely affects the markets can create opportunities for different but similarly problematic conduct.
Investment professionals should act beyond legal standards, making good judgments and responsible choices even in the absence of clear laws or rules.
