This statement is published by K2 Integrity Holdings Inc (K2 Integrity) in response to Section 54(1), Part 6 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and encompasses the fiscal year 2023-2024.
K2 Integrity is an industry-leading, global risk advisory firm, dedicated to helping clients to safeguard operations, reputation and economic security and to mitigating risks and resolving disputes. Built and driven by interdisciplinary teams and supported by cutting-edge technology we provide customized end to-end solutions for our clients,
K2 Integrity represents the merger of K2 Intelligence, founded in 2009 by Jules B. Kroll, the originator of the modern corporate investigations industry and by Jeremy M. Kroll, with Financial Integrity Network (“FIN”) the strategic advisory firm founded by Juan Zarate and Chip Poncy, former senior U.S. Treasury and government officials.
Our multi-national, multi-lingual teams include former senior government advisors, regulators, compliance officers, technology professionals, prosecutors, lawyers, law enforcement and intelligence professionals, forensic accountants, investigative journalists, and academics, each bringing a unique set of risk management, investigative, and advisory skills and perspectives to the client’s situation.
Headquartered in New York, we also have offices in London, Washington D.C., Geneva, Abu Dhabi, Los Angeles, and Chicago. K2 Integrity employs a global staff of over 300 and maintains deep, diverse global networks. We act as advisors to governments, financial institutions, companies, and high-net-worth individuals; our clients frequently include public entities and authorities along with private companies across a wide variety of business sectors.
As a consultancy firm our business model necessitates that the majority of our direct employees are skilled professionals and specialists and therefore the risk of forced labor, modern slavery or human trafficking does not arise within our organisational structure. However we are committed to the highest legal and ethical standards in the way that we conduct our business and to supporting individual human rights in all our operations.
All K2 Integrity employees, as well as our suppliers and subcontractors, must respect and comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations of the countries, states, cities, and any other jurisdictions in which we conduct our business.
Our Code of Conduct sets out our values, ethics and policies regarding both corporate and individual responsibilities and describes our reporting and whistleblowing policies and procedures.
All K2 Integrity employees are required to sign our Code of Conduct on engagement and it and our other policies are accessible to all staff on our company intranet.
Our subcontractors are required to commit to contractual obligations to conform with the principles set out in our Code of Conduct as part of our onboarding procedure and they are required through our screening and due diligence processes to disclose information about their business operations.
We continue to evaluate ways to raise awareness among our staff of this important issue and we provide periodic refresher training on an ad hoc basis.
Employee induction in the UK includes a mandatory Modern Slavery training module describing the impact modern slavery can have on victims and how to recognise it.
The K2 Integrity London Staff Handbook, updated in January 2023, now also includes a section on Modern Slavery and provides UK Government endorsed contacts for reporting concerns or seeking advice.
