Anti-bribery and anti-corruption
Plus500 operates a zero tolerance approach to bribery and corruption. The Company’s Anti-Bribery Policy ensures it conducts all business in an honest, ethical manner whilst acting professionally and fairly with integrity in business dealings and relationships. This policy applies to all our people, as well as, consultants, contractors, trainees, seconded staff, homeworkers, casual workers and agency staff, volunteers, interns, agents, sponsors, or any other person associated with us, or any subsidiaries or their employees, wherever located.
This policy covers:
- Gifts, hospitality and expenses
- Facilitation payments
- Third party suppliers or agents
- Client entertainment and benefits
- Political contributions
- Charitable contributions
The prevention, detection and reporting of bribery and other forms of corruption are the responsibility of all of us. All individuals are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of the policy. Internal control systems and procedures are subject to regular audits to provide assurance that they are effective in countering bribery and corruption.
Training on the Anti-Bribery Policy forms part of the introduction process for all of our new recruits. All of our people receive regular, relevant training on how to implement and adhere to the policy and are asked to formally confirm compliance with the policy on an annual basis. The Board’s Regulatory & Risk Committee reviews the implementation of the Anti-Bribery Policy. Every year the Committee considers the policy’s suitability, adequacy and effectiveness.
