Ethics and integrity

Ethics and integrity


Our investors want to invest in a bank that has high ethical standards and that maintains a solid reputation. They expect us to live up to society’s moral standards in everything we do. But not every moral issue is black-and-white, and our employees sometimes encounter dilemmas in their day-to-day work. The bank’s Ethics Committee guides staff in navigating the grey areas when it comes to acting with integrity.
