At Dr. Peters Group, compliance encompasses our business principles and the commitment to working together in a spirit of fairness and trust.
Compliance is generally understood to mean adherence to all statutory obligations, requirements and guidelines relevant to the organisation as well as to voluntary codes. Fundamental requirements for the conduct of the Group and of every individual are set out in the Dr. Peters Group compliance policy. These constitute a binding framework for all organisational units. All employees in our Group are required to comply with all laws and requirements applicable in their work environment,
both in Germany and internationally, as well as with the applicable internal instructions, processes and guidelines. We act honestly and fairly, with decency and in accordance with ethical principles in all dealings with customers and employees. We avoid situations that could lead to conflicts between personal interests and those of our customers and Dr. Peters Group, and we do nothing that could cause Dr. Peters Group any detriment.
We expect our employees to adhere to our compliance standards. Our Code of Conduct sets out the values and standards for ethical business conduct and guides us in our interactions with customers, competitors, business partners and regulators.
Trustworthiness, responsibility and quality in our daily business conduct are key to our success. This applies both in dealings with contract partners and in managing our funds and investors’ money. As a mid-sized organisation with a long corporate history, we are committed to the standards of respectable business conduct.
Values and virtues such as honesty, reliability and integrity are the cornerstone of our everyday work. The fundamental rules of conduct for our business and our employees are set out in a code of conduct and accompanying guidelines that form part of the compliance management system. This also delineates the framework for our business activities.
