ABAL is committed to promoting and supporting a culture of honest and ethical practice, corporate compliance and good corporate governance, and has accordingly implemented a Whistleblower Policy.
Recognising the expectations of the Bank's shareholders, employees, customers, regulators and the community, the Board of Directors, the Bank's governing body, is committed to ensuring the highest standard of ethical behaviour. This policy directs the management of reports made by Bank employees with respect to suspected improper conduct or misconduct or contravention with federal laws within the Bank, and the protection of the individuals making those reports. Designed to maintain a culture of openness and transparency, the policy is consistent with the Bank's Code of Conduct and complies with the relevant legislation.
ABAL encourages the reporting of any instances of suspected unethical, illegal, fraudulent or undesirable conduct involving ABAL and provides protections and measures so that those persons who make a report may do so confidentially and without fear of intimidation, disadvantage or reprisal.
