Code of Conduct: our foundation for success
To my teammates:
Every day, we work hard to drive responsible growth - helping our customers and clients live their financial lives by delivering all our capabilities and connecting the world for them. As we help people, businesses and institutions achieve their financial goals, it is important that we act with honesty, integrity and fairness.
Based on our company's values, the Code of Conduct is our guide to putting those values into action. We are each required annually to review, acknowledge and understand our Code of Conduct.
Thank you for upholding our ethical standards and commitment to our values in all you do every day for our customers, clients, teammates and communities.
