The Anti-Modern Slavery Self-Assessment Tool for Financial Institutions

Helping financial sector professionals better assess whether and how their financial institutions address modern slavery and human trafficking.

The Anti-Modern Slavery Self-Assessment Tool for Financial Institutions is designed to help financial sector professionals better assess whether and how their financial institution's existing compliance framework and governance address and mitigate modern slavery and human trafficking risks and help prevent and detect this crime. 

The tool covers the four essential areas of a comprehensive framework to address and mitigate MS/HT risks: 

  • Governance, Risk Analysis, and Policies
  • Training and Awareness
  • Customer Due Diligence and Transaction Monitoring 
  • Cooperation, Inclusion, and Social Responsibility. 

The tool provides you with an overall evaluation of your financial institution‘s anti-MS/HT framework, as well as specific evaluations of the aforementioned subject areas. The evaluation is accompanied by recommendations and practical steps that you can take to address gaps and shortcomings.
