Welcome to our internal whistleblowing platform of VakifBank International AG!


At VakifBank, we take compliance, ethics and integrity very seriously. We believe in a transparent and open corporate culture that enables our employees to safely and confidentially report possible violations of legal requirements, company policies or ethical standards.


Our internal whistleblowing platform offers you the opportunity to report information about possible violations or misconduct anonymously and in a protected manner. We thus create a safe environment in which you can share your concerns or observations without fear of reprisals.


How does it work?


Anonymous message: You can submit your information and tips anonymously via the whistleblowing form on this platform. We ensure that your identity and personal data remain protected.


Comprehensive information: Please provide as much relevant information as possible to help us investigate and assess the reported incident. The more detailed your information, the better we can detect possible violations and take appropriate action.


Confidentiality: We treat your report with the utmost confidentiality. Information will only be made available to those persons responsible for investigating and resolving the incident. We will take all necessary steps to protect your identity unless disclosure is required by law or legal process.


No reprisals: We guarantee that there will be no negative consequences or reprisals for whistleblowers who report possible violations in good faith. Our corporate culture supports open communication and encourages employees to voice their concerns.


Hint: Misuse of this platform or deliberate misreporting of information may result in disciplinary action.
