Corporate Governance

The guidelines of Aquila Capital are regularly reviewed based on the development of national and international standards and regulatory requirements and are adapted accordingly. When performing their tasks, the management board and board of directors as well as the employees of Aquila Capital fully identify themselves with the corporate governance guidelines.

Principles of Dealing with Conflicts of Interest

At a capital management company with a wide-ranging client base, numerous circumstances can lead to potential conflicts of interest. To ensure the protection of our clients, we strictly adhere to legal regulations and industry guidelines, implementing several systems and controls aimed at effectively identifiying, managing and mitigating any potential conflicts of interest.

Rules of proper conduct

Employees of Aquila Capital are guided by the laws, regulations, policies, and standards that apply to our industry and profession. Yet we aim to advance our actions beyond mere compliance with local laws and regulations to ensure the long-term prosperity of all our stakeholders – employees, suppliers, contractors, partners, clients, local communities, and society at large. Since most laws and guidelines do not cover all spheres of our influence, we also have our own set of values. We developed a Code of Ethics to formalise our expectations and standards for the way we do business as Aquila Capital employees.

Whistleblowing system of Aquila Capital

In line with Aquila Capital's organisational culture of transparency and trust, the Compliance department has put a Whistleblowing system in place where information about any type of misconduct in a work-related context can-and-should-be reported under the protection of anonymity.    

The whistleblowing system covers all subsidiaries of Aquila Capital and is available to our employees as well as third parties worldwide, at any time. By reporting suspicious and/or illicit activities, you can help identify and prevent organisational misconduct, malfeasance, and thereby strengthen our company’s corporate governance. 

Aquila Capital’s whistleblowing system is facilitated by the German legal advisory firm BDO Legal Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (“BDO”) with the following possible channels of reporting complaints:  

 

Whistleblowing portal: 

https://portal.bdolegal-whistleblower.de/ 

Email:   

aquila-capital@wb.bdo.de 

Telephone hotline: 

0211-9232470-7 (Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 18:00) 

Post:   

BDO Legal Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH 

Zielstattstraße 40 

81379 Munich 

                    

Complaints and reports will be reviewed by the BDO ombudsperson. The ombudsperson will inform the assigned contact person from the Aquila Capital Compliance department about the content of a report, if it is compliance relevant and requires further investigation for resolution. The anonymity of the whistleblower will be upheld – your identity will only be disclosed with your prior consent. 

Confidential treatment of a complaint is guaranteed to ensure protection of whistleblowers. However, please be conscious that if the whistleblowing system is deliberately abused to report unjustified, unsubstantiated assumptions, this could be subject to further verification.
