Information about the nature and the level of risk

Dated June 12th, 2012 the Foundation’s Board of Trustees passed the amendment of the Foundation’s Financial Investment Code of Conduct, in force since June 30th, 2004. Such code governs the investment criteria and the maximum investment limits allowed, as well as the types of products and currencies allowed in such investments.

The Foundation’s financial risk management is centralized in one member of the Board of Trustees who is responsible for the Foundation’s financial investments. Such member is appointed for a three-year period, and among his duties is to supervise and select the investments as well as to observe the proper compliance with the Code of Conduct.

Generally, the Foundation maintains its cash flow and liquid assets equivalent, as well as its long-term and short-term financial investments in high credit rating financial institutions.

The Code of Conduct sets limits regarding credit risk rating, limiting investments to those with issuers belonging to O.E.C.D. countries and with a credit risk rating never lower than a a BBB- or Baa3, except for those issued by the Spanish State, which can be hired in any case.

In order to guarantee liquidity and to meet all the payment commitments derived from its activity, the Foundation keeps at all times a liquidity ratio of an amount equivalent to 0.5% of the total of all financial investments.

The Code of Conduct determines that all the financial products hired by the Foundation must be denominated in euros.
