Now reading: Regulatory adaptation: The changing role of financial sector regulators

Policy and Regulation


We use our expertise in a variety of financial sectors, in advising the development of inclusion-friendly financial-sector policy and regulation. The work we do on any component of the financial sector is always placed within the broader financial policy and regulatory framework, and within a clear understanding of market dynamics and trends.

Our work leverages all financial sector players, including commercial financial service providers, towards providing financial services to lower-income households. While much of our work focuses on policy and regulatory outcomes, we do this in support of private financial-sector development.

Our extensive research in the area of financial policy and regulation spans Africa, Latin America and Asia.
