Ethics - When to Disclose and When to take written permission

Guys any advice

Accept gifts from clients -DIsclose Get additional compensation - Disclose and get it in writing from all the concerned parties

is it like whatever you accepted…just disclose it. Whatever you are going to accept it in future…take written permission?

Yes …

I work as a mutual fund analyst. I am going to begin managing the IRA’s of 5 close friends. Do I need to have written permission from my 5 friends that allow me to work for the mutual fund? Or, do I just need written permission from the fund?

Just from Fund Supervisor

How about taking board of director position in a company that doesn’t have anything to do with your fund (e.g., you work at a short-term govt fixed income fund) Do you have to disclose? written permission? or not need to do anything?
