Whistleblowing Policy

Hong Leong Asset Management Bhd Whistleblowing Policy

Hong Leong Asset Management Bhd (HLAM) is committed to good business ethics and integrity as set out in the Code of Conduct and Ethics. All employees are encouraged to raise concerns about improper conduct at the earliest opportunity, and in an appropriate way.

Who can raise concerns?

  • Any employee of HLAM
  • Any (legal or natural) person including those providing services to, or having a business relationship with HLAM.

What types of concerns should you raise?

You should raise any concerns about any improper conduct or wrongful act that is committed within HLAM, including but not limited to:

  • Any criminal offences, including fraud, corruption, bribery and blackmail;
  • Any failure to comply with legal or regulatory obligations;
  • Any financial irregularity or impropriety;
  • Any breach of HLAM's Code of Conduct & Ethics or Improper Conduct which would be a disciplinary offense; or
  • Any gross mismanagement of company affairs.

Any concerns about malpractice should be raised. If your concern is about your personal position, rather than a concern about malpractice, it will be more appropriate for you to use the HR grievance procedures.

Who should you raise your concerns with?

Reports of any such concerns may be made to the Independent Director of the Board of Directors.

Independent Director of the Board of Directors
Hong Leong Asset Management Bhd
Level 18, Block B, Plaza Zurich

Bukit Damansara
50490 Kuala Lumpur
Email: IndDirector@hlam.hongleong.com.my

Please include your full name and contact details, as well as full details of your concern and any supporting documentation you consider relevant. Should you wish to do so, you may use our Whistleblower Form to provide the details required.

HLAM reserves the right not to investigate any concerns which are raised anonymously.

Additionally, you also have the right to raise your concerns with relevant regulators, such as Bank Negara Malaysia, Securities Commission, Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (or any of their related companies) or with law enforcement agencies.

What action can be taken against you?

You will be protected from retaliation, adverse employment action and from disclosure of your identity, provided your disclosure was made in good faith (even if you are genuinely mistaken in the concerns you raise) and to the extent permitted by law.
