Advocating for change in the financial sector
An enabling and forward-thinking environment is essential to drive the national financial inclusion agenda. Persistent challenges remain for consumers in accessing and using financial solutions, as well as for service providers in overcoming barriers to providing affordable, convenient and appropriate products and services.
The speed of change within the financial sector has become increasingly more rapid as new players enter the market and offer solutions that are not based on traditional thinking. This presents significant challenges for policy-makers in responding to changing legal and regulatory requirements.
FSDT strives to gather and share robust market intelligence and to work with government and regulatory bodies to galvanise evidence-based innovation in national, regional and local financial inclusion policies and create supportive legal and regulatory environments.
