Compliance is an integral part of our day-to-day work. You can find an excerpt of the statutory rules, policies and codes to be observed which are relevant for IBB here.
For many years, IBB has persistently been implementing the legal and regulatory requirements of various national and European laws and regulations. This ensures, among other things, the protection of personal data, the prevention of money laundering, financing of terrorism and other criminal acts (Money Laundering Act, German Banking Act (KWG, Kreditwesensgesetz)), as well as the legally compliant processing of trading transactions (Securities Trading Act) and the prevention of prohibited securities transactions by IBB’s employees (Market Abuse Regulation).
With a view to these matters, IBB is supervised by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority, the German Bundesbank and the Berlin Commissioner for Data Security and Freedom of Information.
What are the tasks of IBB’s Corporate Compliance?
IBB maintains a central unit pursuant to section 25h of the German Banking Act to prevent criminal offences, such as subsidy fraud, corruption and embezzlement. This unit carries out preventive measures and performs regular control procedures. That being said, uncovering the criminal offences mentioned above is often not possible without the assistance of staff and customers.
This area of responsibility is assigned to IBB’s Corporate Compliance and the Data Protection Officer. Customers, partners and staff can contact Corporate Compliance at any time on a confidential basis with questions or information regarding any suspicious circumstances.
