Modern slavery statement

Modern Slavery Statement

United Insurance Brokers (DIFC) Ltd. (“UIB (DIFC) Ltd.”, we, our or us) has taken steps to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

Our organisation

Our business uses professionally qualified people employed directly by UIB (DIFC) Ltd. or seconded from a UIB Group member firm. Our Group consists of companies which are leading insurance/reinsurance brokers in their chosen fields of business, trading under the highly respected name of UIB. Our people policies ensure fair treatment of our teams. Our external suppliers are mostly companies based in low risk jurisdictions (for example the UAE, UK) and in low risk sectors (such as professional services) whereby none of them produce, manufacture or retail goods.

Our policies in relation to slavery and human trafficking

UIB (DIFC) Ltd. has established a zero-tolerance position on violations to anti-modern slavery and anti-human trafficking laws. If we find breaches of these laws within our supply chain, we will look to support companies in their efforts to comply with the legislation. Our clear values of collaboration, leadership, excellence, agility, respect, and responsibility, are the pillars of our culture. They embody everything that we do at UIB (DIFC) Ltd. and how we do business. They outline the expectation of our people’s behaviour with colleagues, UIB Group member firms, suppliers and people around the world. We seek to treat everyone fairly and consistently, creating a workplace and business environment that is open, transparent and trusted.

Action taken to date

The UIB Group Guiding Principles, which has been cascaded down from the Chairman of the UIB group via the Chairman of UIB International includes a statement on modern slavery and is appraised and accepted by all staff as is this Modern Slavery Statement. Externally, one to the same effect is signed up to by all of our business partners within the declaration assigned to our Due Diligence Questionnaires and is equally contained in our TOBA.

UIB (DIFC) Ltd. is fully committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in its supply chains, and that everyone’s fundamental rights are respected.
