An increasing number of British households are in extremely poor financial health; either highly indebted, lacking adequate savings, or both. The intense financial pressure that many households are currently under is forcing us to re-think the design of services and products to ensure that these meet the realities of their lives, whilst technological developments potentially provide some opportunities to reduce delivery costs, scale interventions, and provide highly personalised interventions.
However, rapid technological development also poses risks, and the roles to be played by financial innovators, policy-makers and regulators, and the wide range of existing stakeholders in the financial health agenda will be critical in determining outcomes moving forwards.
Our conference, which is being organised jointly with Toynbee Hall’s Financial Health Exchange, will critically examine the challenges that lie ahead and discuss the need for genuine co-design of new services and products; more collaborative working, and holistic responses. We will also discuss ways to build trust with consumers; and how we can harness the opportunities that technology offers for both individual and social good.
We are delighted to publish our draft programme for the event, which includes a fantastic line up of speakers.
Book your place on-line today and join in the debate about the future of financial health on 30th October.
