These values are the foundation of how we conduct ourselves and interact with each other, our clients, members, suppliers, shareholders and other stakeholders. The Company is committed to ensuring corporate compliance and promoting ethical corporate culture by observing the highest standards of fair dealing, honesty and integrity in our business activities. 

The Company encourages the reporting of any instances of misconduct involving the Company’s business and provides protection and measures to individuals who make a disclosure in relation to such conduct without fear of victimisation or reprisal.   

The Company relies on its employees maintaining a culture of honest and ethical behaviour.

Reportable Conduct 

By fostering a culture of accountability and transparency, we can ensure that all individuals associated with FundsDLT uphold the highest standards of conduct and contribute to a safe and ethical working environment. The purpose of this policy is to provide channels for employees and third parties associated with FundsDLT to report various types of irregularities. The following categories of misconduct or inappropriate behaviour should be reported:

    • Dishonesty, fraudulence, inappropriateness, illegality, or negligence in professional activities or behaviours exhibited by individuals.
    • Instances where a person fails to act in an appropriate, ethical, or lawful manner while performing their duties.

Examples of irregularities that should be reported include, but are not limited to:

    1. Criminal offenses
    2. Market manipulation and insider trading
    3. Breaches of civil law or regulations
    4. Violations of FundsDLT’s core values or other unethical conduct
    5. Serious breaches of FundsDLT’s internal rules and regulations
    6. Questionable accounting and audit issues
    7. Deliberate concealment of abuses and irregularities

Reporting Guidelines

    1. Relevance: The irregularity being reported should directly relate to FundsDLT or any of its associated parties.
    2. Accuracy and Completeness: Provide information that is as accurate and comprehensive as possible. Include relevant details, such as dates, individuals involved, and specific incidents or actions.
    3. Supporting Evidence: While it is preferred, it is not mandatory to provide concrete evidence of the irregularity. However, reporting individuals should have reasonable grounds to suspect that the irregularity has occurred or is likely to occur.
    4. Confidentiality: Your identity will be kept confidential to the extent permitted by law. All information provided in the whistleblowing report, including the identity of the reporting person, is treated confidentially throughout the investigation process. Disclosure of the reporting person’s identity will only occur with explicit consent, except when mandated by a court order in subsequent legal proceedings.
    5. Protection against Retaliation: FundsDLT is committed to safeguarding whistleblowers against any form of retaliation for reporting in good faith. Any retaliation or discrimination is strictly prohibited and will be dealt with appropriately.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can contribute to the integrity and compliance of FundsDLT. Your reports are crucial in ensuring a transparent and accountable environment for all stakeholders. Accordingly, if you become aware of any Reportable Conduct, it is expected that you will make a disclosure.
