    Abstract This second Briefing Paper, made available to the Financial Sector Commission on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking prior to the second meeting in Liechtenstein on 20-21 January 2019, focuses on responsible lending and investment practices, exploring what guidance, tools and solutions are available to financial sector actors seeking to lend and invest in ways that reduce modern slavery and human trafficking risks. The paper focuses on: • exploring the relevance of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the authoritative global standard on the responsibility of business to respect human rights; • current and leading practices among public and private financial institutions in implementing these expectations; and • opportunities to harness the UN Guiding Principles and related efforts to support the goals of the Commission.
