FinTech, Financial Inclusion – and the Potential to Transform Financial Services
Recent developments in FinTech— from artificial intelligence to blockchain technology—coupled with an increasing understanding of the financial challenges facing underserved and ‘unbanked’ Americans, provide an environment ripe for the expansion of new FinTech innovations that could transform financial services in the United States.
On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, the Boston Fed and the Aspen Institute will bring together thought leaders from the business, nonprofit, and public sectors for a half-day conference to explore the challenges and opportunities at this intersection of the FinTech and financial inclusion space.
Leaders and content experts in technology, finance, FinTech, insurance, government, nonprofit, and academic circles will find this to be an enriching conversation— to which the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program will bring its deep knowledge of the issues surrounding disadvantaged populations, while the Boston Fed will draw on its FinTech and regulatory expertise, relationships with firms driving FinTech innovation, and understanding of the challenges facing low- and moderate-income communities.
