Catalysing new thinking to overcome challenges to an inclusive and growing financial sector.
The impact of digital financial services is widely recognised as making a significant contribution to the four-fold increase in financial inclusion since 2006. Technology continues to help leapfrog market constraints and reframe persistent challenges to the development of customer-focused solutions.
New solutions and providers create new challenges not only for customers and providers, but also policy-makers. The increase in the number and nature of digital solutions can be complex and confusing, limiting consumers’ ability to make informed choices that meet their needs.
For policy-makers, the challenge is to ensure comprehensive oversight and protection that meet the needs of the fast-changing financial market.
FSDT is committed to its aim to promote the contribution of technology within the financial inclusion agenda and works to create a community of forward-thinking public and private organisations and end users to disrupt and improve the financial sector.
