Modern Slavery Policy

This policy sets out the Ignition Advice position on modern slavery. The policy applies to all entities within the group, including those entities registered in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia.

Ignition Advice entities are not legally obliged to publish a Modern Slavery Statement. However, we take our responsibilities in this area very seriously and are fully supportive of this important legislation. We have voluntarily developed this policy to show our commitment to operating practices in alignment with the Modern Slavery Acts that apply to each jurisdiction.

Our business and organisational structure

Ignition Advice is a leading provider of digital advice technology, built for financial institutions seeking to address the broadening advice gap, wanting to deliver advice to more customers in an efficient, understandable, convenient, affordable and sustainable way.  For more information about what we do, go to the link here. Due to the nature of our industry, organisation and working practices, and supported by our robust policy framework, we believe the risk of slavery or any other abuse of human rights to be low.

Our Values and related Policies

Our values are core to everything we do and how we work.

  • Gobal mindset. We share information across all borders.
  • Bold. We are big thinkers, and we move fast.
  • Innovation. We are developing solutions that anticipate emerging needs.
  • Respect. We treat each other and our clients with respect and succeed together.
  • Trusted. We are the experts in digital advice technology.

Our business is built on trust, and we treat each other; our clients, suppliers and those around us with respect. Guided by these values and a responsible mindset, we have put in place a range of policies:

  • Vendor Risk Management Policy. Our risk management policy and procedure and minimum standards state that we strive to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking does not support our supply chain or our business. When selecting material external suppliers, we assess their approach to modern slavery.
  • Anti-Bribery & Corruption Policy. We are clear that we will not engage in any form of corrupt business practices and have implemented measures to prevent bribery and corruption by any director, employee, contractor or other party representing Ignition.
  • Whistleblower Policy. We aim to provide an environment where employees and others in the workplace are treated fairly and with respect. Employees are encouraged to report any wrongdoing. We strive to provide all individuals with a supportive work environment, in which they feel able to raise issues of legitimate concern, without fear of victimisation, detriment or other retribution and provide suitable mechanism to report such matters.
  • Employee Code of Conduct. Ignition’s code and values system makes clear to employees the actions and behaviours expected of them, both internally and externally. Employees are treated in a fair, transparent and respectful manner.

The business and its employees aim to maintain the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour every day and to ensure this is reflected in management of the supply chain.
