Modern Slavery Act Statement
Financial Year 2019
MJ Hudson is below the turnover threshold required for it to publish a mandatory statement under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Nonetheless, we are continually reviewing and evaluating our position with regard to the Act and will seek to implement a robust policy and Section 54 compliant statement when this becomes necessary. This is therefore a voluntary statement.
We use the term “modern slavery” to encapsulate slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking.
OUR STANCE ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
To date, we confirm that we have not identified any occurrence of modern slavery in our organisation or supply chain.
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 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, 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 very low.
We seek to ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business. We plan to implement mandatory training for all staff before the end of the next financial year.
