Based on the publicly available documents Transparency International evaluated, financial institutions do not report having extended their anti-corruption policies to the agents and intermediaries acting on their behalf. They also do not report having applied such requirements to other third parties with whom they do business, such as contractors and suppliers. Facilitation payments are another issue that has rarely been addressed in public information by companies in the financial sector: only five of the 24 companies report that they prohibit such payments. Full disclosure of policies on political contributions and any actual political contributions made is another area that needs significant improvement.

Organisational transparency The average result in this group was 67 per cent as compared to 72 per cent for the sample population. Among the financial companies scoring in the top 10 for organisational transparency, there was not a single US financial institution. Chinese banks performed much better in organisational transparency than they did in reporting on anti-corruption policies. Of the seven European banks, six received maximum possible scores in organisational transparency.
