The Code of Ethics

The aid to orientation for our actions


The code of ethics is a binding framework for all internal employees, managers and the Board of Management of Deka as well as for third parties operating on behalf of the Deka Group. It is the basis for a legally-compliant, open, transparent and added-value oriented corporate culture of the Deka Group and among other things, contains a clear commitment to sustainability.

Compliance with the requirements of the code of ethics has been verified uniformly for all employees of the Deka Group. In this verification, the relevant manager evaluates compliance with the code in the framework of the annual appraisal meeting. Violations may lead to employment measures, civil and criminal procedures up to and including termination of contract. The code can be viewed in its current version of 15 December 2017 on the Deka Group website.
