Building capacity to expand and deepen the financial sector.
Effecting lasting change in the financial sector requires skills and resources across all stakeholder groups to address persistent challenges from the policy-making, supply and demand perspectives.
Understanding and anticipating significant changes that require regulatory or legal oversight necessitates a new focus, considerable resources and ever-evolving technical expertise. With the advent of digital technology and non-financial providers, new skill sets are required to reframe traditional thinking and use an evidence-based approach to identify new markets, distribution channels and solutions.
For consumers, as the number of financial products and services grow and the delivery mechanisms evolve, making informed decisions becomes increasingly complex.
FSDT recognises the importance of bridging the human capacity gap to drive forward the financial inclusion agenda, adding value to support the expansion and deepening of the financial sector.
