Our Commitment to You
When you become a client of Hansberger Global Investors, Inc. ("HGI") you entrust us with not only your hard-earned money but also with personal and financial information about you. We recognize that your relationship with us is based on trust, and that you expect us to act responsibly and in your best interests. Because we have access to this private information about you, we hold ourselves to the highest standards in its safekeeping and use. This means, most importantly, that we do not sell client information—whether it is your personal information or the fact that you are a current or former HGI Client - to anyone.
The Information We Collect About You
In the course of doing business with investors, we collect nonpublic personal information about you. "Nonpublic personal information" is personally identifiable private information about you. For example, it includes information regarding your name and address, social security or taxpayer identification number, assets, income, account balance, bank account information, and investment activity (e.g., purchase and redemption history).
How We Handle Your Personal Information
As emphasized above, we do not sell information about current or former clients or their accounts to third parties. Nor do we share such information, except when necessary to complete transactions at your request or to make you aware of related investment products and services that we offer. Additional details about how we handle your personal information are provided below.
- To complete certain transactions or account changes that you direct, it may be necessary to provide identifying information to companies, individuals, or groups that are not affiliated with HGI. For example, if you ask to transfer assets from another financial institution to HGI, we will need to provide certain information about you to that company to complete the transaction.
- In certain instances, we may contract with non-affiliated companies to perform services for us. Where necessary, we will disclose information we have about you to these third parties. In all such cases, we provide the third party with only the information necessary to carry out its assigned responsibilities and only for that purpose. And, we require these third parties to treat your private information with the same high degree of confidentiality that we do.
- Finally, we will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are compelled by law to do so, or in other circumstances permitted by law.
How We Safeguard Your Personal Information
We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about shareholders to our employees and in some cases to third parties (for example, the service providers described above) as permitted by law. We maintain strict physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard and dispose of your nonpublic personal information. HGI maintains documents and other media on-site or at a secured vendor site for the required retention period. Additionally, HGI contracts with vendor(s) that place secured storage containers on-site and specialize in the removal and destruction of confidential documents and other media. HGI employees are instructed to deposit into these containers all documents and media that may potentially contain nonpublic information. On a regular basis, the container contents are removed and immediately destroyed in a mobile shredder.
