The Group maintains a Whistleblowing Policy to facilitate the raising of matters of serious concerns by employees and its related third parties (e.g. contractors, customers, suppliers, etc., who deal with the Group), or collectively referred to as “Whistleblowers”, in confidence without the fear of recrimination. Procedures are established for whistleblowers to report suspected misconduct, malpractice or irregularities directly to the Chief Compliance Officer, who will review the complaints and determine the appropriate mode of investigation and subsequent corrective action. Recommendations on improvements are communicated to the respective department's senior management for implementation. Results of the review of the complaints received will be reported to the Audit Committee twice a year.
