The chief executive officer, Fidelity Bank, Mr Nnamdi Okonkwo, has said sound ethical practices and compliance are imperatives for building a strong and enduring financial institution.
He said this on Monday as part of activities marking the 2020 Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, as he restated the bank’s commitment to the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct in its dealings with customers and all stakeholders.
He added that the week-long celebration provided a great opportunity to beam the spotlight on compliance and ethics.
He said, “Let us all be reminded in all our dealings that we need to co-exist and prosper together with all stakeholders including customers, suppliers, partners, local communities and employees who are integral to our survival as a business.
“Doing the right things, the right way, is the best approach to building a sustainable business.”
While reiterating that Fidelity Bank has kept ethics and professional integrity at the forefront of its business in the over three decades of existence, he added that the bank would continue to utilise digital technologies to deliver innovative financial services that met the needs of customers.
Starting from Monday November 2, 2020 and running up until Friday, November 6, 2020, the bank has put together series of employee engagement initiatives as part of the annual activities to celebrate the week.
Corporate Compliance and Ethics Week is organised annually by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and it provides organisations and employees with the opportunity to educate and drum attention to the twin issues.
