GPFI Approves 2016 GPFI White Paper on Global SSBs

18 May, 2016

The March 2016 GPFI White Paper, Global Standard-Setting Bodies and Financial Inclusion: The Evolving Landscape, builds on the considerable progress in recent years in integrating financial inclusion into the work of global standard-setting bodies (SSBs).

There is growing recognition of the impact of the global financial sector standard-setting bodies (SSBs) on who gets access to what range and quality of formal financial services and at what cost. Appreciation has also grown as to the important role that digitization of financial services plays in reaching financially excluded and underserved customers, and the implications of this development for the SSBs. 

Released almost five years after the October 2011 GPFI White Paper, Standard-Setting and Financial Inclusion for the Poor—Toward Proportionate Standards and Guidance, this second GPFI White Paper seeks to raise awareness of the changing landscape of financial services, to inform ongoing work by the SSBs and other global bodies, and to promote the integration of financial inclusion objectives into standards and guidance that can be applied effectively at the country level.
