The Bank’s ability to achieve its mission relies on public trust. The Bank is committed to promoting the highest standards of integrity and high ethical standards within the organisation; this commitment is essential to maintaining that trust. This page summarises the Bank’s approach to managing conflicts of interest.
Our Code is the Bank’s Code of Conduct and encompasses the Bank’s key conduct policies. The Code sets out four overarching principles: (1) acting with integrity, demonstrating impartiality, (2) being open and accountable, (3) being safe and secure and, (4) creating a diverse, inclusive and empowering culture, which are integral to our mission. The principles and requirements set out in Our Code are underpinned by detailed policies which set out how we should approach certain situations, including what we need to report, seek approval for or declare to the Bank. Our Code, and the relevant staff policies concerning issues of integrity, are available at the links below.
