Modern slavery is a hidden crime with over 40 million people around the world finding themselves in this horrific situation. Given that it is prohibited under international law in almost every country, why is it so widespread and pervasive? And what is being done to address it? For the answers to those questions, it’s a pleasure to have with us, Nick Grono, the chief executive officer of the Freedom Fund.
Legatum Limited is one of the most interesting enterprises you’ll ever come across. It’s a private investment firm headquartered in Dubai that uses its own funds to invest globally. The firm also invests in activities that promote anti-slavery, health, and educational initiatives, and it does so in a very distinctive fashion. And here to explain it all to us is Mark Stoleson, the CEO, and a partner at Legatum.
