The quest for financial inclusion – where are we and where are we heading?

October 22, 2020
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM EDT

This event has now finished but if you are interested in the topic and would like to speak to a member of the team then please contact us.

Over the past decade, the number of active correspondents has decreased by 20%. The retreat is global but some regions have been hit harder than others – often those that can afford it the least.

De-Risking happens largely with countries where governance and controls around financial crime are not considered strong enough.

Based on the latest data shared from BIS on the global retreat of correspondent banks, this webinar will cover:

  • The underlying impacts of De-Risking
  • Achievements and lesson learned from recent cases
  • The role of technology and big data in supporting financial inclusion

Join us to learn more about your organization’s role into building a reliable correspondent-banking network, creating greater financial inclusion, while ensuring robust enhanced due diligence procedures are in place.
