Van Lanschot Kempen and its subsidiaries fulfill a service-providing role in society. We can only perform this task properly if each party with whom we are dealing can put its trust in us. The actions of our employees form the basis for the trust that is placed in them. You can read more about this subject in the Code of Conduct.
Managing conflicts of interest is an essential part of ensuring and enhancing the integrity and reputation of
Van Lanschot Kempen.
In addition to clients and employees, third parties (e.g. suppliers, intermediaries or non-governmental organisations) can also come across irregularities. These parties can report any irregularity to our Compliance director, email email@example.com.
Van Lanschot Kempen attaches great importance to integrity and transparency. That is why we take our internal culture, in which (potential) irregularities can be discussed and reported, seriously. Employees should feel free to discuss potential irregularities with colleagues and report these to their manager or the Compliance department. Where employees do not feel free to discuss or report irregularities they can use the whistleblower procedure.
On 1 January 2015 an updated Dutch Banking Code came into effect and replaced the Code that had been in force since 1 January 2010. The Banking Code sets out principles for sound and controlled business operations, corporate governance, risk management policies, audit and remuneration policies.
The Banking Code applies to all activities in the Netherlands performed by Dutch-based banks that are in possession of a banking licence granted by De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB). The Code therefore applies to Van Lanschot N.V., Van Lanschot Kempen’s subsidiary with a banking licence in the Netherlands. Banks that are part of a larger group and that are subject to the Code may apply elements of the Code at the level of the entity at the top of the group; these elements do not have to be applied by individual subsidiaries. Some elements of the Banking Code are therefore applied at the level of Van Lanschot Kempen.
All banks in the Netherlands describe on their websites the ways in which they have applied the Banking Code in the previous year. Where relevant, a bank will state its reasons as to why it has not complied or not fully complied with a provision, in keeping with the ‘comply or explain’ principle.
Van Lanschot N.V. complies with the Banking Code and fully complied with the provisions of the Banking Code in 2018.
The attached document reviews, on an article-by-article basis, how Van Lanschot N.V. applied the Banking Code in 2018.
Our tax policies aim to ensure that the bank complies with tax laws and rules, as well as internal guidelines and codes of conduct. We have drawn up comprehensive policies to prevent objectionable tax practices, which can be found below.
