Kenanga Group is committed to ensuring that any party who make a report in good faith pursuant to the Group Speak Up Policy are protected from reprisals or retaliation from Kenanga Group.

In this regard, as mentioned above, not only is your identity kept confidential but also, any party who takes retaliatory action against you will be subject to the appropriate actions under the relevant policies of Kenanga Group. However, you are to note that making a report knowing it is false or maliciously will not accord you the protections aforementioned.

What happens to the report received by Kenanga Group?

A preliminary assessment of the matter reported on will be done and this includes determining whether the report does in fact come within the scope of the Group Speak Up Policy. This preliminary assessment is done objectively and the decision on whether the matter would be further investigated depends on a number of factors including the sufficiency of the information and details provided, any documentation submitted and if the report on the face of it shows a reasonable belief or basis of the commission of a misconduct. Hence, it is important you provide contact information so that clarification could be sought if necessary at this stage.

If the initial assessment suggests or indicates the possibility of a misconduct on a totality of all circumstances, a thorough and extensive investigation process will then be undertaken according to the Group Speak Up Policy.

However, if during the initial assessment the report is discovered to be made in bad faith or is a matter outside the scope of the Group Speak Up Policy, it will be looked into by the relevant department/division within Kenanga Group pursuant to their respective policies and procedures.

How can I help with the investigation undertaken pursuant to a report I made?

Providing as much information along with relevant evidence will greatly assist the investigation process. In addition, providing your contact details and being prepared to be interviewed or provide clarification on matters raised in the report will also facilitate the investigation.
