Did you know that 1.7bn people do not have a bank account? The only payment method available to the unbanked is cash. Research has identified a link between financial inclusion and the reduction of poverty. As the world moves to a cashless society, how will the unbanked use their money?

There’s a solution gaining traction across developing nations in Asia and Africa. Offer simple banking products via mobile phones. Pilot schemes have proven successful. The solution is now expanding into the South Pacific.

Financial inclusion is a $600bn opportunity. This is a huge market, untapped by major banks because they do not have the infrastructure.
