The Prime Minister has set up a blind trust to manage her financial interests since being elected to the post.
She apparently had no such arrangement whilst holding other senior positions within the Government.
A blind trust passes the day to day management of shareholdings and other financial assets to a third party. Obviously the owner is broadly aware of the holdings, but has no control over the timing of any trading that takes place which is at the discretion of the manager.
Given that members of the Government are often privy to price sensitive information, is this mechanism sufficiently robust to avoid accusations of insider dealing or profiteering?
