Our whistleblower system enables our employees to report any possible illegal activities. All members of staff are able to contact an external ombudsman, either confidentially or anonymously. Helaba will not attempt to identify any whistleblowers. In this way, we ensure that nobody providing information will be placed at a disadvantage.
The possibilities for whistleblowers to provide information are defined in a general operating procedure, which also specifies who is in charge of and responsible for prevention, detection and following up criminal offenses, such as corruption.
Frankfurt Sparkasse has established its own system.
