Modern Slavery Policy

At SSV Capital, we conduct our business with integrity, transparency and fairness. We are committed to the prevention of slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our engagements. We perform our business in a sustainable and ethical manner in compliance with our values and relevant law and policy, including the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

We do not accept slavery or human trafficking in our business and we will not work with others who do not share our commitment to preventing slavery and human trafficking.

Our Anti-slavery Policy documents our commitment to conducting our business with integrity, transparency and fairness and the steps we take to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not present in our business or in our supply chains. This Policy applies to our partners, all of our colleagues and to our investors, including those who work for or on our behalf in any capacity and includes a mechanism whereby concerns can be escalated confidentially.

The company’s Anti-slavery Policy includes guidance with examples of unusual behaviour displayed by workers which may be indicative of someone experiencing slavery or human trafficking. It makes it clear that SSV Capital will support anyone who raises a genuine concern in good faith.

We will continue to monitor the effectiveness of our compliance regime, assess how we can make improvements to address any changes in risks and take necessary steps to address any instances of slavery and human trafficking. This will include focus on the modern slavery risk profile across our supply chains in light of the increased risks of modern slavery presented by COVID-19 in a range of sectors.

We understand that an Anti-slavery Policy will not in themselves be sufficient to prevent slavery and human trafficking. We recognise the importance of developing a culture within the company which does not tolerate slavery or human trafficking and is not complacent about the associated risks. Through our good business practices and people engagement policies, we believe that SSV Capital will establish such a culture. We will continue to take steps to embed and strengthen this culture. SSV Capital is committed to fostering this culture across the company through training, education and awareness initiatives.
