Since 2011, SEEP has been an active contributor to the Global Savings Groups Conference series. The bi-annual event engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders, develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning, and strengthens partnerships and alliances among development and market actors.
In 2018, SEEP will host the fourth edition of the series – SG2018: The Power of Savings Groups – in Kigali, Rwanda, in collaboration with Conference partners.
You are invited to join the Center for Financial Inclusion and the Institute of International Finance on Tuesday, May 22 at 9:30 EDT for a virtual event focusing on the long-awaited results of 2017 Global Findex survey. Building upon CFI’s analysis of the World Bank Data, the conversation will highlight key trends that will have the greatest impact for mainstream financial institutions and the greater financial inclusion community at large.
Notably, we see financial institutions continuing to play a dominant role in financial inclusion. But in the past few years, despite a reduction in the global unbanked population, we’ve found that levels of account dormancy remain high. The Institute of International Finance will underscore the opportunity for financial service providers on how best to leverage new technology to better serve lower income segments and actively participate in financial inclusion, building on insights from most recent data.
