The Global Fintech Index Briefings

As we continue to grapple with the impact of Coronavirus on our lives and businesses, we need to get practical and take steps and build business resilience for the future.

Our focus is on crisis as well as opportunities. In the next few weeks we will talk about collaboration across the marketplace, and about what we have learned so far and what are the needs for the future: mindset, data, talent, leadership, technology and our ability to plan and prepare for future shocks.

RE:SET – The impact of financial inclusion on the world post Covid-19

in partnership with Fintech Mundi

Date: Wednesday 17th June 2020

Time: 08.00 BST / 09.00 CET

The global impact of Coronavirus is yet to be fully measured but it is evident that those that are at the margins of financial services, or excluded from them, are set to suffer the most, not only from the pandemic but from the risk of inaction.

Does it have to be this way? Innovation, collaboration, speed and open dialogue with governments and regulators have shown that fintech can make a positive change. This is even more true at a time when financial exclusion is synonym with risk and lack of sustainability – of mature and emerging economies alike.

 

With Susanne Hannestad, CEO of Fintech Mundi, Simon Hardie, CEO of Findexable and guest speakers Charlotte Rønje, CEO & Founder of Jamii.one, Kristian Rönn, CEO of Normative and Selma Kveim, CEO of Bright Products we will discuss:

Global use cases for financial inclusion and experiences on the ground

Why it makes sense for governments and regulators to listen

How fintech can make the ecosystem resilient to the shocks to come, by leveraging the economic power residing in diversity, inclusion and social responsibility
