During 2012, over 125 new and updated training courses were rolled out to staff globally, resulting in over 255,000 completed training assignments. During 2012, the number of staff with overdue training was consistently below 8% of the global headcount. Key 2012 and 2013 courses addressing ethics and integrity issues include: Compliance Essentials, Anti-Money Laundering, Risk Culture, Supervision, Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, Tone at the Top, and Market Conduct.


The fall in employees with completed compliance trainings results from an update of the Private and Business Clients Webbased training on Compliance Essentials in 2012. This training is rolled out every second year. The updated training will be rolled out globally in the second half of 2013.
