Preventing Financial Crime
We are committed to conducting business in accordance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and the highest ethical standards. This commitment is embodied in our Code of Conduct.
We invest heavily in our data analytics and systems capability to help prevent financial crime and the social harm that it brings. We combine this with a robust control framework that includes risk governance and enforcement of bank-wide policies and procedures around Anti-Money Laundering, Countering the Financing of Terrorism, sanctions, fraud, and bribery corruption.
Any employee who contravenes these policies and standards may be subject to investigation and disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment. Such incidents may also be escalated to the authorities and lead to prosecution of the parties involved.
