The challenge going forward is to close the demand-supply gap among these groups through public-private partnerships, innovative policy and customer-led financial service provider strategies.
We work to overcome information asymmetry on the supply side which limits appropriate, customer driven innovation, as well as legislative barriers and rigid requirements for customer registration.
On the demand side, we collaborate across the sector to recognise the needs of marginalised groups to inform appropriate, cost-effective provision of financial products and services.
