The Bank shall take all necessary measures to ensure that the identity and personal information of the Whistleblower shall be protected at all time and kept confidential, to the extent reasonably practicable unless otherwise required by the law, or for the purpose of any proceedings by the Bank. In such a case, the Bank shall notify the Whistleblower before revealing their identity.

A whistleblower will be accorded with protection of confidentiality of identity, to the extent reasonably practicable. Such protection is accorded even if the investigation later reveals that the whistleblower is mistaken as to the facts and the rules and procedures involved.
Any anonymous disclosure will be entertained provided that the information / evidences received are sufficient and not frivolous. No protection will be given to anonymous whistleblower. However, the Bank reserves its right to investigate into any anonymous disclosure.
EXIM Bank reserves the right to amend this policy from time to time.
Whistleblowing is the reporting of an individual or organisational’s malpractice by any person suspected to be doing improper conduct within the Group or organisation, based on his or her reasonable belief.
WBP enables the Bank staff, external related parties (i.e vendor, customer, consultants, stakeholder etc.) to raise concerns regarding any unethical conduct or malpractice at the earliest opportunity without being subject to victimisation, harassment or discriminatory treatment, and to have such concerns properly investigated.
A whistleblower is a person who raises concerns about wrongdoings in their workplace. Whistleblower is deemed to be protected under the Policy. The identity of the Whistleblower will be kept confidential, as long as it does not hinder or frustrate any investigation.
The Bank places high value on the level of trust and integrity expected of its employees. This policy will directly support the Bank’s Core Values, Code of Ethics and Governance requirement.
Yes. The Designated Whistleblowing Officer will determine whether the disclosure constitutes an improper conduct or criminal offence.
You may blow the whistle verbally or in writing. Any channel used will only be accessed by the authorised Designated Whistleblowing Officer (DWO) and Designated Whistleblowing Director (DWD) only.
Confidentiality will be maintained to the extent possible within the limitations of law and the legitimate needs of the investigation. Your identity will, of course, be known to Designated Whistleblowing Officer (DWO) & Designated Whistleblowing Director (DWD) with a legitimate need to know in order to carry out an investigation. Release of your identity may be required pursuant to circumstances where the Bank is required by law to release information. In addition, you should also be aware that your public testimony might be needed to prove the case against the accused. If you self-disclose your identity, the Bank will no longer be obligated to maintain such confidence.
Anonymous disclosure is acceptable provided that the information/ evidences received are sufficient and not frivolous. The disadvantage of being Anonymous Whistleblower is that he/she would not be protected and will not be able to know the status of the Disclosure.
You should state the facts with as much specific information as possible so that your allegations can be investigated, such as what occurred, who was involved, and dates of occurrence. You should not speculate or draw conclusions, and should be prepared to be questioned by the investigator.
No, but it is important to file a report as soon as you have enough evidence to make a good faith report. If you delay, evidence becomes stale, hampering the investigation, and then the Bank may not be able to resolve the problem.
A preliminary investigation will be conducted and you may be contacted for an interview that will be performed discretely. The preliminary investigation will determine if a full investigation should be undertaken and by whom.
You can provide as much factual information and evidence as possible, in order to allow the investigation to proceed. However, don’t obtain any evidence for which you do not have a right of access and don’t do your own investigation. You should be prepared to be interviewed by the investigators and provide all the information you know about the allegations.
You generally have the right to be informed of the outcome of your disclosure and the findings of any investigation, although there might be overriding legal or public interest reasons not to do so. However, any action taken against an employee, as a consequence of the findings of the investigation, may be personal and confidential, in which case, it cannot be disclosed.
If you self-disclose your identity, the Bank no longer will be obligated to maintain your confidentiality. To protect your confidentiality and that of the investigation, it is advisable not to discuss the matter with anybody except the DWO.
