Financial inclusion has become a big cause across the globe, and is increasingly becoming big business. It is also a risky business. Many of the markets where financial exclusion reigns are untested, the consumers lack financial sophistication, regulation may be unfriendly, and the technology may not always deliver what it says on the tin.

The CSFI has just conducted – with the support of the Citi Foundation and the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion – a survey of these risks using its tried and tested Banana Skins methodology. The result is Finance for All, which identified 18 areas of risk for service providers and ranked them by the scores given by respondents. Technology risk was the clear leader, with “FinTech” firms opening new opportunities and new risks across all the markets surveyed.
