What all regulators must do to promote financial inclusion
Making national-level commitments to financial inclusion is one of the most effective ways that policymakers can help more people gain access to formal financial services.
In his new op-ed in The Banker, Accion CEO and President Michael Schlein discusses the findings and implications of The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Microscope 2015: The Enabling Environment for Financial Inclusion. Last year’s ranking and review of 55 countries’ financial inclusion policies found that the countries which focus on a comprehensive approach are the world’s financial inclusion leaders – and those that don’t are often left behind.
Read the op-ed to see which countries are setting a new standard for financial inclusion leadership, and what other countries can do to help their people access a safe place to save, give them the chance to borrow and build their credit, or insure themselves and their families.
