Financial inclusion is a prerequisite for financial transparency; those concepts are easy to grasp, but hard to achieve. Ultimately, financial institutions experience dire consequences without both -- excruciating regulatory fines and reputational damage. This session delves into how an innovative P2P payments company enables more people in emerging markets to be included in the global financial system, how a credit union has helped 14,000 families escape the payday loan debt cycle for mainstream credit products, and how bitcoin companies are unmasking identities to achieve transparency on the permissionless blockchain. You’ll be inspired to think differently about how your financial institution can attract more consumers and businesses without adding additional risk to your customer portfolios by leveraging data, predictive analytics, high-powered technology and analytic linking to address financial inclusion and transparency and grow profitably. You’ll also be one of the first to see research results that show the power and influence financial institutions can harness to tackle financial inclusion and financial transparency by collaborative data sharing.
