Allen & Overy interviewed Nick Bryan-Brown, one of the founders of the Blackpeak Group, about his clients’ increasing focus on modern slavery issues.

As modern slavery is now clearly identified as a predicate offence for money laundering by the Financial Action Task Force, the UK Government and others, the need for banks (in particular) to use their existing AML procedures and systems is clear.

What is still lacking is a clear system of modern slavery guidance (for example, a detailed checklist), which banks and corporations could use when conducting due diligence. Together with one of our NGO partners, Liberty Asia, we are working with clients to help them develop such systems and to help them understand that, in many cases, desktop or public domain research is insufficient to get to grips with the challenge.
