Financial inclusion in the digital age
Technology has become a key enabler for supporting financial inclusion in both developing and developed markets in a commercially viable manner. China and India are taking the lead in this aspect and becoming role models for other countries in supporting inclusive growth. A consumer financial services revolution powered by mobile phones, technological innovations and changing consumer mindsets is bringing in several new fintech players from the private sector who are interested in ‘for-profit’ impact investing.
