Tackling financial exclusion in Scotland

November 19 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

Join our expert industry panel for an evening of networking and discussion focused on delivering an inclusive financial sector for Scotland.

 

Help shape the conversation as we discuss:

  • Are we too obsessed with a cashless economy and not worried enough about those left behind?
  • Is the closure of bank branches and ATMs heightening financial exclusion?
  • Is the financial services sector doing enough to help vulnerable customers?
  • What innovations are being used to help the unbanked who are struggling to access financial services?
  • How can we harness technology to tackle financial exclusion?
  • What are the main barriers to accessing banking?
  • Is credit worthiness still too blunt an instrument?
  • Are young Scottish fintech companies bought into the ‘fintech for good’ agenda?
  • Should the industry do more to tackle financial services jargon?
