The Commission was delighted to have been invited by the Lord Mayor of London to participate in his Financial Literacy and Inclusion Summit on Wednesday 12 April.
Commissioner John Godfrey delivered a speech to provide the audience with an overview of the business case for financial inclusion before joining our panel, chaired by President of the Commission, Sir Brian Pomeroy. You can find his full speech here.
Our panellists, Commissioner Danielle Treharne, UK Small Business Commissioner Liz Barclay and LINK CEO John Howells, shared their arguments and insights of a wide range of topics including digital inclusion, small businesses, access to cash, FinTech and the gender pensions gap. The panel made the case that financial exclusion is not just an issue for government to tackle, but for industry too.
The Commission would like to extend its thanks to the Lord Mayor and his team for organising the event, as well as, those in attendance for their brilliant questions.
