Where any employee discovers information which they believe shows malpractice or wrongdoing within 3i, under most circumstances they would be expected to raise concerns with their line manager, who will pass this information to the appropriate Executive Committee member.
Should this route be neither suitable nor acceptable, then the employee may approach one of the following individuals who have been designated to provide impartial advice on the appropriate course of action to follow:
- Director, Group Compliance;
- Director, Internal Audit
- Group Legal Counsel & Company Secretary.
Alternatively, employees may express their concerns on a completely confidential basis through an independent ‘hotline’ service provided by an independent, external party.
There should be no fear of reprisal or victimisation or harassment for making such disclosures in good faith.
Further details can be found in 3i’s People policy.
