Financial Inclusion Virtual Summit:


Sign up

The Commission was delighted to host our first Financial Inclusion Virtual Summit on 15 February 2022 in partnership with the Money and Pensions Service and UK Finance.

The upheaval of the last two years has altered nearly every aspect of our lives, and how we interact with our finances is no exception. But despite all the progress that has been made in the fight to facilitate access to financial services, the work is far from over. Our Financial Inclusion Summit looked at how we can help promote financial resilience. You can find the first part of the recorded session here and the second part here.

We recently held the latest installment of this series of events examining how regulatory policy can help address financial exclusion in the UK, including a focus on introducing a cross cutting ‘must have regard’ to financial inclusion for the FCA. You can find the recording here.

We are now delighted to announce the next virtual roundtable event on 18 July, 11:00 – 13:30 examining how general insurance and group income protection can help tackle financial exclusion in the UK. You can find the full agenda below.
