This webinar will explore how partnerships between mainstream financial institutions (e.g., banks, insurers, and payment companies) and fintechs are addressing financial inclusion challenges and expanding access to the formal financial economy for underserved segments of the global population, particularly in emerging markets.
Contrary to the popular narrative, financial institutions view fintechs as partners in innovation, not threats to their core business. By offering better, less expensive, and more innovative products, financial institutions can assert their continued relevance as customer-facing institutions with help from fintech partnerships.
Based on insights from a recent report from the Center for Financial Inclusion and the Institute of International Finance, authors Sonja Kelly, director of research at CFI and Dennis Ferenzy, associate economist at IIF, will lead this discussion.
Financial Inclusion Week 2017 is a global conversation on the most important steps to advance financial inclusion. From October 30 – November 3, 2017, stakeholders will explore how new products and partnerships are empowering customers. Join the conversation at #FinclusionWeek.
