TAF's Corporate Compliance Program
Transparency is one of TAF’s core values. We are accountable and open in all our business practices, and we are committed to conducting all activities in full compliance with the highest level of ethics and integrity.

In addition, TAF’s Compliance Plan provides guidance on how to resolve questions regarding legal and ethical issues and establishes a mechanism for raising compliance issues and reporting possible violations of law or ethical principles within TAF.
