Conference Paper from Underbanked Financial Services Forum
Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI) Co-produces Successful Conference and Releases Paper Highlighting its Findings
The success of the sold-out Underbanked Financial Services Forum, held in Chicago in June 2006 and co-produced by CFSI and SourceMedia, along with the demand for follow-up information has led to the creation of Highlights from the Inaugural Underbanked Financial Services Forum. The diverse audience, with representation from banks, credit unions, check cashers, vendors and nonprofits, came together to discuss opportunities, trade notes and find partners for reaching out to underbanked markets. Resonating themes from the Forum are detailed in this paper. In addition, the paper examines how a post-conference survey of participants yielded new insights into the perceived opportunities and challenges in serving the market. Taken together, the learnings and survey findings should help shape the work and discussions going forward regarding the opportunity to serve the underbanked.
