Financial Sector Services

Financial institutions increasingly recognize that they are well served by applying key business and human rights standards, such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, to mitigate risks linked to their financial products and services.

Leading financial institutions recognize that they have duties to respect human rights by adhering to both international norms and domestic laws intended to protect rights holders affected directly or indirectly by their activities. We help our clients develop policies that account for their unique operations and activities by identifying both negative and positive human rights impacts caused directly or indirectly by their products, services, or investments. Bringing our many years of experience working with institutions in the financial sector to bear, we make tailored recommendations for addressing actual or potential risks facing our clients.
