IMPACT MONDAY – Reimagining Financial Inclusion: Tackling the flaws of our formal financial system

November 8, 2021
4:00 pm

To live in today’s world, you need money; yet the majority of people do not have access to it. This book features 13 game changers from around the world who are challenging the status-quo and paving new pathways to financially include low-income families.

Through an in-depth study of their thought-provoking strategies, a framework for inclusion is distilled, centring around five levers to tackle the flaws of our formal financial system. If you are curious about how to get involved with changing the future of finance, this book is for you.

“Game changers are not looking in the rearview mirror, focusing on ‘the old;’ they look forward, anticipating and building ‘the new’. Reimagining Financial Inclusiontriggers the reader’s sense of purpose, invites them to build ‘the new’ and creates a bias for action. If the pace of change outside our financial system is faster than within, it is time to rethink our relevance to society.”

– Marguerite Soeteman-Reijnen, Chairman, Executive Board, Aon Holdings and Global Chief Marketing Officer, Aon Inpoint
