"Vested interest" is not synonymous with "conflict of interest."

Do you have a clue as to what the difference is?

A vested interest is an interest in which a person has invested.

A conflict of interest is when a person has two or more interests, roles or functions that are inherently opposed to one another, thereby causing a logistical, philosophical, ethical or legal incapability between the interests.
