Help us to ensure a culture of trust and integrity!

Compliance reviews the accuracy and completeness of the policy on an annual basis.

Ensuring integrity in all business processes is an essential prerequisite for our success.

This is based not only on our values but also on compliance with laws, regulations and internal guidelines. This has the highest priority at Universal-Investment, because only if we comply with rules and standards we can avert damage to our company, our employees and investors.

We are grateful for any information from employees, customers, suppliers and business partners that helps to identify and remedy misconduct. Only in this way can we prevent economic disadvantages and damage to our company's reputation.

Whistleblowers who report actual or suspected violations in good faith are not informers, but help to ensure the integrity of our business processes - and thus our success. Please support us in this!

In an open corporate culture, employees should be able to address mistakes openly and at an early stage. The direct superior should be the first point of contact for problems and process improvements. If you have the feeling that you cannot contact your supervisor with a reference to a rule violation - for whatever reason - the whistleblower system offers various ways of making this reference. The central internal contact here is Compliance.

Making a report correctly

In order for a tip to be processed and investigated appropriately, it is important that the tip is as concrete as possible.

It is helpful if the five questions below are taken into account in the report:

  • Who? - Who is it about? Who is affected?
  • What? - What happened? Description of the facts.
  • When? - When was the incident?
  • How? - How often did it happen?
  • Where? - Where did the incident occur?

As a whistleblower, you should ensure that the descriptions can also be understood by persons outside your field of expertise.

You can anonymously transmit your information to our partner Clarius Legal through a digitally supported whistleblower platform .
