Our webinar will explore innovations in pension inclusion, including strategies to reduce costs, build financial capability, and protect consumers.

Research from CFI shows that low-income people use a number of strategies to stay afloat financially in older age, including relying on family, continuing to work, generating income from rental properties, and more. However, there is a mismatch between what they think they will use and what they actually use. pinBox Solutions’ recent publication aims to explore innovative solutions for addressing this gap with insights from experts around the world.
Our webinar will focus specifically on the challenges and opportunities of providing pensions to the financially excluded. It will unpack the role that technology can play in reducing the cost of pension collections and take a look at how behaviorally informed interventions can build the financial capability of customers and create more workable pension products. It will also highlight the importance of consumer protection in these efforts.
