Our supervisory boards, Management Board, managers and all employees must practice impeccable ethics in order for us to retain the long-term confidence of our customers, business partners and the general public in the integrity of the DekaBank Group. The principles and standards required for this have been set down in the Code of Ethics of the DekaBank Group.
The DekaBank Whistleblower System
The Code of Ethics also sets down the rules for the whistleblower system, which ensures that information about illegal or dishonest activities can be reported to the DekaBank Ombudsman in confidence.
The Role of the Ombudsman
The Ombudsman examines the facts and passes relevant information to DekaBank while ensuring that confidentiality is maintained. If requested, the name of the whistleblower is maintained in confidence and not disclosed. As a lawyer, the Ombudsman is bound by an attorney’s obligation of secrecy. The whistleblower does not incur any costs.
This is how you can contact the Ombudsman
