ethics- gifts

can analyst receive gifts from the company he covers? never or could, but need get consent from his employer (or both customers)? thanks in advance

Could. Need to obtain written consent from all parties involved (Handbook page 91).But I did see some correct answer only mentioning obtaining written consent from employer. Anyway, remember, Must get written consent from both employer and customers.

You don’t need consent from all parties since its not extra compensation. However, you must disclose the receipt of the gift to your employer (P 15).

thanks alot

you cannot accept the gift if it is reasonable to assume that accepting the gift could impare your objectivitiy.
