    Abstract This brief is aimed at capital market actors—asset owners, asset managers, private equity funds, stock exchanges, investment banks, and development finance institutions (DFIs)— and in particular those engaged in high-risk sectors like extractives, construction, and agriculture. It focuses on their crucial role in addressing modern slavery and the strategies, practices, and leverage of their peers. As responsible investment trends reshape risk assessment approaches and values, this brief is an essential resource for capital market actors engaged in high-risk sectors, helping them to understand how they can combat this human rights violation. It offers good practice examples, case studies, and five actionable recommendations.
