Preventing Other Criminal Activities

As well as tackling fraud, bribery, and corruption offenses, the Global Head of AFC is responsible for ensuring that measures to prevent other criminal activities—derived from the German Penal Code—which could endanger institutional assets (see section 25 of the German Banking Act), are fit for purpose. Examples include damage to property, robbery, cybercrimes, and antitrust offences.

A dedicated Central Unit Coordination Team is in place to manage this and it is overseen by Group and Regional Financial Crime Governance Committees, chaired by the Global and Regional Heads of AFC respectively. Within Postbank, a Central Unit is implemented to oversee the prevention of other criminal activities.
