Modern Slavery: A Financial Crime, A Global Humanitarian Crisis

November 12, 2021

The Situation

Modern slavery is a worldwide, profit-motivated problem that enslaves people from all walks of life and generates billions in illicit funds each year. Financial institutions play a critical role in identifying this financial crime as bad actors become more adept at using the global banking system to legitimize ill-gotten gains.

The Solution

It behooves those institutions to update their compliance structure with an eye toward legal obligations and risk management.
