Credit institutions, securities companies and securities depositories are required by law to provide special reporting systems for the reporting of suspected irregularities in the operation. Similar requirements are also proposed for fund companies in the fall of 2016. By having a Whistleblower-system, the risk for irregularities in operations are reduced.
FCG provides a user-friendly web-based Whistleblower portal, where employees in a safe and easy way can report on serious infringements. When FCG’s specialists receive the report, an initial assessment of the received data is established. In the case of a serious infringement, the matter is further investigated and will be reported back to the company’s management, board or compliance function.
We offer a complete package solution that includes implementation, case treatment and counseling. Since FCG is an independent body, security for the company’s employees, when reporting irregularities, is created.
The person reporting via the Whistleblower portal is always guaranteed anonymity towards their employer. The employee can additionally choose to report anonymously to FCG, if desired. A notifier can also communicate with FCG, via a unique sign-on, on the Whistleblower portal where messages and documentation can be provided.
