Glynis Rankin, Chuck Waterfield, and Josh Goldstein will join us in the conversation on issues such as:
- How the next generation of systems, institutions and products will require a new generation of leaders.
- How we can build a financial system that reaches 2.5 billion people that we aren’t already reaching.
- How new and innovative social protection programs combined with financial services have begun to show great promise in facilitating movement out of poverty.
- How financial markets driven by profits as their primary objective can create great benefit for the poor, but can also exploit the poor.
