    The financial sector has “underutilised tools” at its disposal to prevent and disrupt human trafficking and modern slavery, according to a new report by a UN think tank published Tuesday.

    “Human trafficking is both big business and a serious crime. With an estimated 45.8 million people enslaved today, the impacts cannot be measured in dollars and cents alone,” said the report’s author Dr James Cockayne.
