Rules, such as "When do you NOT need to disclose gifts/additional compensation to employer?"
My understanding is that if its a small gift from a client (pen, golf shirt), you don’t have to disclose it to your employer. If it’s a large gift like a weekend getaway, you can accept but have to disclose to employer. If it’s any gift (large or small) from a firm you work with, but whose money you don’t manage (such as someone you’re doing research on or underwriting), then you may not accept any type of gift becuase it shows partiality–simply disclosing is not enough.
Also, I understand that allowing a client to pay for airfare/hotel is always prohibited (even if disclosed), and that the analyst has to pay for his own airfare (unless it is to a very remote location).
Is this all true? Any other “rules”? It may be helpful if we compile a list.
