Report Misconduct / Whistleblowing

Quintet wishes to create and foster a corporate culture marked by honesty, transparency and openness.  Quintet wants to encourage everyone to report financial criminal activities and breaches of any legal, regulatory, external or internal requirements linked to Quintet.

Employees as well as non-employees[1] who are in contact with Quintet Private Bank Group in the context of their work-related activities (e.g. contractors and suppliers), should all have the opportunity to report potential wrongdoing at the earliest possible stage.

Employees are encouraged to speak up any specific concerns with line management first, before raising concerns through other escalation channels.

[1] “Non-employees” include any person whose employment contract hast not started or has ended, self-employed persons, volunteers and trainees, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and facilitators.

Our communication channels

We value open communication and would like to encourage also non-employees to submit their report using their name. This will help us to communicate with them and if necessary, request further information we may need. Such report will always be handled strictly confidential and Quintet will respect the legitimate interests of all parties involved up to the extent possible by law.

The CSSF supervising Quintet together with the ECB, has established a whistleblowing line via its website and published an user guide Reporting Breaches of Breaches of financial sector regulations to CSSF

This Q&A states that the CSSF’s whistleblowing procedure is to be used by those who have “reasonable grounds for believing that the report will show breaches of applicable regulation by entities or persons of the financial sector which fall under the supervision of the CSSF”. 

It also clarifies that “The whistleblowing procedure should however not be used for breaches which are clearly of a criminal nature”. 

Finally, the CSSF is clear in that  “before contacting the CSSF, employees of entities of the financial sector are requested to first use the whistleblowing procedures in their workplace, if there are any”.

Whistleblowing topics

The reportable matters covered by the whistleblower scheme cover, in particular:

This applies to any regulatory offences, not just financial crime offences.

For any complaint, please contact the BRM department, which is intended specifically to support you.

Reportable matters also include any so-called protected disclosures made in the public interest under the Employment Rights Act 1996 (ERA) in the UK as well as disclosures made according to the Allgemeine Gleichbehandlungsgesetz (AGG) in Germany.

Processing of alerts

Whistleblowers concerns are treated in confidence by a dedicated investigator.

The investigator is subject to strict ethical rules and ensures that each reported allegation is treated confidentially, objectively and fairly. Any investigation that is being carried out due to a reported concern will be answered within a reasonable time provided the report was not made anonymously.

Where appropriate, e.g. when there is a possible conflict of interest, the seniority or position of the subject of the report requires it, or the independence of an internal or local investigator might be otherwise compromised), recourse may be made to an external party to conduct the investigation.

Reported concerns are recorded in a Whistleblowing register held by Quintet Group Compliance with restricted access and subject to strict recordkeeping and data governance rules.
