Managing risk is critical to being a responsible and sustainable business. We understand that acting ethically protects our reputation and that of our clients. And we recognise that this responsibility lies with each and every one of us, regardless of our role at the firm. Our Risk Aware programme is dedicated to ensuring that ethics and risk awareness are embedded in the decisions we make and the activities we undertake in everyday working life. We aim for widespread understanding of what the firm expects in this area and we know how important it is to create a culture where people feel encouraged and protected to speak out.
