How do we ensure that inclusive fintechs reach low-income people and are designed with the consumer in mind?

We identify emerging fintech solutions and potential risks, partner with other organizations to test innovative solutions, and collaborate with industry associations and regulators to ensure fintech solutions are built with the consumer at the center.

Fintech provides tremendous opportunity to reach financially underserved households and businesses. Leveraging technology and cutting-edge innovations, fintech solutions can help people use the financial tools and services they need to improve their lives. Yet, despite the great promise of fintech, many people still remain excluded. At CFI, we aim to ensure that fintech solutions are responsibly designed to help and protect consumers.
