Professional standards

Working to the highest standards

Invest Europe is the guardian of the industry’s professional standards, shaping the principles of ethical behaviour and trust that govern the relationships between private equity managers, their investors and portfolio companies. All Invest Europe members must adhere to the Invest Europe Code of Conduct and are strongly encouraged to adhere to the standards when they join. 

The standards are published in Invest Europe's Handbook of Professional Standards. The Handbook is used in Invest Europe training courses, which supply first class tuition to practitioners. The Invest Europe Professional Standards Committee, a group made up of both private equity managers and their investors, is responsible for the standards.

Should you have a complaint about an Invest Europe member not complying with the professional standards,  please contact us and we will direct your concerns to the Professional Standards Committee.
