• Rewarding performance

A fair, transparent and sustainable approach to employee remuneration has always been of crucial importance to the bank. In 2021, we continued to refine our compensation framework and practices taking into account the macro environment and new regulatory changes. Our compensation strategy is focused on supporting a global, client-­centric banking model, reinforced by safe and sound compensation practices that operate within the bank’s capital, liquidity and risk bearing capacity and supports the key principle of fairness, irrespective of factors such as seniority, tenure, gender or ethnicity.

Find out how the compensation framework promotes and rewards sustainable performance and contributions based on delivery, behavior and conduct, across all levels of the organization.
