Responsible Corporate Governance

Our Code of Conduct

DZ HYP believes that acting lawfully, ethically and responsibly is integral and indispensable in fulfilling its entrepreneurial and social responsibility. To hold us accountable beyond legal requirements and market standards, we developed our own set of internal rules and values, upon which our Guiding Principles and Management Guidelines are based, and which are also reflected in our Code of Conduct developed jointly with DZ BANK Group. As a subsidiary of DZ BANK AG, we are part of the Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken cooperative financial network, which comprises about 870 individual cooperative banks.

Our Code of Conduct is a risk prevention, leadership and communication tool. It documents the corporate culture that defines each Group entity, and the values we share as a group. Our understanding of ethical and responsible conduct is further elaborated upon in detailed instructions, guidelines and central handbooks for each bank. Apart from basic rules to counter corruption and bribery, money laundering, financing of terrorism and white-collar crime, our Code of Conduct provides guidelines on sustainability and responsibility vis-à-vis our clients, business partners and employees. It serves as a compass for our daily conduct.

At DZ HYP, we are committed to abiding by our Code of Conduct. We know that the demands made upon our actions and work ethics will increase as we grow our business, and we acknowledge this fact in our everyday work life. Each employee is responsible for complying with our Code of Conduct. We are convinced that adhering to the principles will lead to a fair working environment for both clients and employees, and to successful and sustainable growth for DZ HYP.
