Future of Financial Services
Wednesday, September 22, 2010, 9:00 – 10:15 AM, Washington 5
In this nationwide moment of economic uncertainty, envisioning the future of financial services is critical to ensuring that the asset-building field will continue to have a meaningful impact in the lives of low-income consumers. With the generous support of the Mott Foundation, the Center for Financial Services Innovation (CFSI) is leading a research effort to identify and examine the key trends facing the financial services industry over the next 10 years, providing a foundation for rich dialogue and strategy development among all participants who have an impact on the lives of the financially underserved.
In this pre-conference session, CFSI will:
- Present its preliminary research findings
- Discuss their implications for the asset-building field
- Provide recommendations for future action
The headlining speaker for this Pre-Conference Session will be Joshua Sledge, Innovation Analyst at CFSI. No registration is required, but space is limited, so arrive on time to guarantee your seat.
