Setting Sound Policy for Responsible and Inclusive Fintech

The policy tracks below are unified under a guiding “north star” concept: the idea that safeguarding, empowering, and advancing consumer and end-user interests should drive policy formulation. When considered together, these areas of focus will create consumer safeguards and protections, while fostering business model innovation that can deliver access to safe, inclusive, low-cost, and equitable financial products, services, and opportunities.
