Inclusive Financial Innovation25 October 2018
This event is organised by The Finance Innovation Lab
Date: 25 October 2018

The Scottish Government has been at the forefront of efforts to promote inclusive growth –economic growth that combines increased prosperity with greater equality, creates opportunities for all, and distributes the benefits of increased prosperity fairly.
While it is widely recognised that finance is a vital ingredient of a prosperous economy, there is mounting evidence that too much finance of the wrong type can undermine the real economy, increase inequality and disempower communities.
Meanwhile, rapid transformation in data and AI capabilities brings new risks around consent and control, bias and exclusion, and exploitation, but also offers new opportunities to put people back in control of finance and deliver more equitable outcomes.
On 25 October, we will work with experts from government, civil society, finance and innovation to co-create new ideas about how finance can help to build a more inclusive, fair and prosperous society.
We’re delighted to be partnering with the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose to hold this event, and to be part of the Global Ethical Finance Initiative’s ethical finance week taking place in Edinburgh between 22 – 25 October.
If you are interested in attending the event, to share your expertise, learn from others and contribute new ideas that will help to shape a better future for finance, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
