Change will never be this slow again - Reaching your next billion customers
ICT is disrupting traditional ways of thinking, giving rise to new products and services, including improvements in efficiency for the financial services industry. The question isn’t whether this industry will be transformed, but how soon it will happen.
At Ericsson we have a vision of a Networked Society where ICT is the catalyst for radical transformation and new efficiencies. In this cross-industry panel we will explore some of these developments as they relate to mobile financial services including barriers and opportunities, roles different stakeholders can take, sustainable financial inclusion, and our journey towards the next billion customers. We will consider different challenges and explore the fundamentals necessary for building long-term, sustainable success in mobile financial services.
Finally, we will take a closer look at the interdependence between social and financial inclusion – and what role mobile technology has in enabling this. Studies show that broader participation in the financial system can have tremendous impact on a society and financial inclusion is now seen as a way of reaching the goal of a more socially inclusive planet.
