'Financial Inclusion Compass 2019' Published, Revealing an Inclusive Finance Sector at a Crossroads

During the recent European Microfinance Week, the European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) launched the Financial Inclusion Compass 2019 on emerging short, medium and long-term trends in the financial inclusion sector, with digital transformation of FSPs, client protection, client-side technology innovations and agri-finance among the most significant trends identified by a broad array of sector stakeholders. 

Launched for the first time in 2018, the Compass leverages e-MFP’s multi-stakeholder membership and position in the inclusive finance community, giving practitioners, investors, donors, academics and support service providers the opportunity to assess and describe the importance of various Trends, evaluate and give opinions on New Areas of Focus, and provide open-comment qualitative input on the expected (and hoped-for) direction of financial inclusion progress.
