Are you a financial inclusion innovator? Do you have a hand in developing financial products and delivery methods that catalyze financial inclusion? Consider applying to be a participant in the Financial Inclusion 2020 Global Forum, convening this October in London.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ve most likely heard of the FI2020 Global Forum. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ve definitely heard us discuss innovations in the financial services space that very well could, or are already improving service quality and are supporting the expansion of financial inclusion. Some such recent posts are Democratizing Data to Increase Transparency, Access, and Knowledge for the New Generation of Latin Americans and Financial Engineering for Low-Income Households. As a refresher on the Forum, it is a landmark, invitation-only event that will engage a broad range of players in financial inclusion in a collaborative environment where they can map the action agenda for achieving financial inclusion by the year 2020.

The Forum will bring together approximately 300 leaders across regions and industries, including regulators, policymakers, NGOs, donors, and financial services providers. The recent advances in financial inclusion could not have been possible without the innovations of new technologies and disruptive business models. Participation from senior-level representatives of established companies and organizations that have developed, marketed, and implemented products with noticeable market impact are key to the conversations taking place at the FI2020 Global Forum.

To that end, we welcome expressions of interest in attending the Forum from leaders of companies and organizations that meet our outlined criteria. Participation in the FI2020 Global Forum will allow these leaders to network with senior-level representatives of large financial services institutions, regulators, policymakers, and other experts while providing their insight into analyses of actions steps to advance financial inclusion in 2014 and beyond.
