Modern Slavery Act Statement
Financial Year 2021
MJ Hudson is below the turnover threshold that requires it to publish a mandatory statement under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This is therefore a voluntary statement.
We oppose slavery and human trafficking in all its forms. We are continually reviewing and evaluating our position with regard to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will seek to implement a robust policy and Section 54 compliant statement when this becomes necessary.
We use the term “modern slavery” to encapsulate slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. These actions are crimes and a violation of fundamental human rights and MJ Hudson takes a zero-tolerance approach to them.
OUR DUE DILIGENCE ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We confirm we have not identified any occurrence of modern slavery in our organisation or supply chain. We are committed to monitoring our supply chain to ensure this remains the case. Our robust Whistleblowing Framework ensures that staff are able to raise concerns about any suspected unethical behaviour.
MJ Hudson operates in the financial services sector and provides advice to asset managers, fund managers and investors to enable them to operate more efficiently and invest more successfully. Our specific service lines are Law, Fund Management Solutions, International Administration, Investment Advisory, Investor Relations and Marketing and Data and Analytics.
We regularly advise our clients on their legal and regulatory responsibilities and hold ourselves to the same high professional standards. Our zero-tolerance approach extends to any third-party suppliers we use and we expect them to comply with our high professional standards.
OUR RISK AREAS
Our business is office-based and our primary supply chain categories support our office operations. Supply categories include office-space and services, the provision of security and cleaning services, IT and technology, professional services and business travel.
As a regulated provider of legal and financial services and employer of predominantly professionally qualified and highly-skilled people, the risk of modern slavery within our business is considered to be low.
We seek to ensure a high level of understanding among our staff of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and in our business.
