Whistle Blowing Policy

Whistle-blowing refers to the act of disclosure by a person to the public or to those in authority, of mismanagement, corruption, illegality or some other instance of wrongdoing in the organisation.

At SIF, we value our reputation for integrity and professionalism. Providing a channel for unethical behaviour to be reported helps SIF to uphold the highest standards of integrity and professional conduct. SIF requires all staff to observe our Guiding Principles and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Our Whistle Blowing Policy provides an independent platform to report any wrongdoing. If an employee, business partner, or any person believes that any wrongful, illegal, improper or unethical conduct has been, or is in the process of being committed by any SIF personnel and/or SIF’s business partners, such conduct should be reported to SIF immediately.

Whistle-blowers should report their concerns in good faith. SIF treats all such reports with strict confidentiality and will protect the reporting person’s identity (unless the applicable law requires SIF to make the necessary disclosures).

SIF encourages a whistle-blower to identify himself/ herself when raising a concern or providing information. The identity of the whistle-blower and any concerns raised or information provided will be treated with the strictest confidentiality. Thorough investigations can only be conducted if SIF receives adequate and specific information.

A formal report, subject to confidential/ legal restrictions, will be issued following investigations. This will be communicated to the whistle-blower and the person accused of the wrongdoing, and their views will be taken into consideration.
