Financial Inclusion at the Bottom of the Pyramid – Co-Author with Karl Mehta
Today there are 6.4 billion wireless connections in the world reaching 85% of the total population of 7 billion people. 2.27 billion people have access to the internet, and this is increasing rapidly with the proliferation of smartphones in the developing world. Technology has never reached or impacted as many people as it does today. And this is changing everything – the way we interact, shop, learn, bank, heal, stay healthy, entertain, and live.
This is the moment in history where there is an opportunity to provide financial services for everyone. Just as mobile communications has created an almost universally connected world, so can mobile banking create universal financial inclusion. Although it is within our reach, the journey is non-trivial.
Written by experts with banking innovation experience in dozens of countries and continents.
Reading this book will change your view of banking forever. It provides innovation guidelines and a blueprint to change the banking landscape.
