This Code of Conduct lays down the fundamental principles of personal and professional conduct expected of all directors and employees in the performance of their duties.

 

The Bank has been built through the character of its people. That character is reflected in the Bank’s Core Values, which have been fundamental to our success. Our continued success depends on each one of us doing our part to uphold these values in our day-to-day work and in all the decisions we make, as reflected in our operating principles.

 

While the Bank competes hard to achieve leadership and business success, the Bank is concerned not only with results, but with how those results are achieved. The Bank will never accept efforts or activities to achieve results through illegal or unethical dealings.

 

Throughout this Code of Conduct, where reference is made to “we,” or “us”, this includes all directors and employees; and “ our” refers to KBANK’s business and organisation.

This document describes basic ethical principles for the performance of duties and professional practices binding on both directors and employees of KASIKORNBANK.

 

A bank of good practices is made up of directors and employees who all conform to the expected ethical standards. This is the basis of the Bank’s success. Continuing and sustainable success results from the conduct of every one of us. In carrying out our duties, each must uphold the Bank’s ethical standards in our daily tasks and in all of our decisions, as described in Bank operational principles and procedures.

 

In today’s highly competitive environment, in order to remain at the forefront in business and to achieve the ethical stature, the Bank attends not only to results but also to the way in which results are achieved, refraining from any methods and activities that may be illegal or unethical.

 

In the following, “we” and “us” refer to all directors and employees, and the “Bank” refers to KASIKORNBANK and business operations.
