9. Claims adjusters must avoid placing themselves, directly or indirectly, in a situation of conflict of interest. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a claims adjuster would be in a situation of conflict of interest where
(1) the interests involved are such that the claims adjuster may tend to favour certain interests over those of the client, or the claims adjuster’s judgment and loyalty towards the client may be adversely affected; or
(2) the claims adjuster obtains a current or future personal benefit, directly or indirectly, for a particular act.
