MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT

This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’) and sets out the steps the Titan Wealth Group[1] (‘TWG’) has undertaken, and will continue to take, to ensure modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain. We have prepared this statement based on our understanding of the definition of ‘modern slavery’ – a term which encapsulates slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking.

 

Our Position

At TWG, we are committed to becoming a leading responsible business, which means putting responsible and sustainable decision making at the heart of everything we do. As such, we are committed to operating in a responsible and ethical manner, and ensuring the relationships we have with all our stakeholders adhere to high standards, including clients, partners, employees, shareholders and suppliers. We will not tolerate or condone the abuse of human rights (including modern slavery) in any part of our business. We are committed to identifying and minimising the risk of slavery or human trafficking in all parts of our supply chain.

 

Our Business

The Titan Wealth Group is a discretionary fund management/wealth and asset management business providing high-quality execution and administration to the asset and wealth management sectors in the UK. There are Titan Funds domiciled in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Titan is a signatory to the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment, a voluntary framework for incorporating environmental, social (including modern slavery) and governance (“ESG”) issues into investment and ownership decisions. As part of a bottom-up investment research process, Titan considers a range of factors that might  affect a company’s intrinsic value, which can include ESG issues. Titan’s research on ESG factors informs decisions not to invest as much as it informs decisions to invest.

 

Risk of Human Trafficking and Slavery

TWG does not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking and takes a risk-based approach to its supply chain. The nature of our business means that the Titan Group do not have complex supply chains and do not procure material services from suppliers in high-risk countries. Our suppliers are predominantly regulated financial and professional service companies, including banks, data service providers, accountants and law firms. The Titan Group also have suppliers of equipment and maintenance and support services for our office locations. Given the professional nature of our business, the Titan Group have a low risk of modern slavery or human trafficking existing within our business operations and supply chains

 

 

Steps Taken

The Titan Group believe that they undertake appropriate due diligence in relation to new suppliers and expect suppliers, and their supply chains, to comply with all relevant legislation and regulations in the countries in which they operate or which are otherwise applicable to them. The Titan Group also has a Whistleblowing Policy, which provides employees a clear path to report issues and concerns. The policies of the Titan Group are periodically reviewed and, where necessary, will be updated to reflect the Titan Group’s continuing commitment to ensuring that modern slavery and human trafficking are not present in their supply chain.

Policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking

  • Our Bullying and Harassment Policy also sets out our approach in relation to allegations of harassment and/or bullying. Harassment, in general terms, is defined as unwanted conduct affected the dignity of people in the workplace.

  • Our Whistleblowing Policy is in place that enables employees (including temporary or permanent employees, contractors, agency workers, interns and those on work experience) to raise any concerns they may have about illegal or improper behaviour by anyone connected to TWG, without fear of victimisation, discrimination or disadvantage. We provide annual training to employees on the whistleblowing process and how to make a disclosure.

In addition to the above policies, we offer our employees the opportunity to seek independent and impartial advice via confidential telephone and email counselling services provided through our employee assistance programme, should they wish.
