Globally, many digital financial service initiatives are being undertaken with the goal of taking advantage of the promise of technology to avoid the high costs of bringing financial access to the doorstep of low-income clients that are currently excluded from the financial system. In addition, the microfinance and banking industry has grown in recent years, as new products, delivery channels, alliances, and providers work to meet the demand for sustainable and accessible financial services for all. Growth, expansion, and innovation create strain and stress on institutional systems and staff, often increasing already high operating and technology risks.
The session will elaborate on key value propositions in offering Digital Financial Services (DFS), the dominant modes of engagement along with associated benefits and challenges, understanding the costs and benefits of engaging in the DFS ecosystem, and key determinants of success or failure. Further, the session will also examine fraud risk within the overall risk management and control framework for effective and efficient preventive and detective controls for Risk Management, Internal Auditor, Operations, IT, Finance, HR, and relevant business personnel.
By the end of the session, participants will discuss the potential provider and consumer risks in digital finance and learn how to manage those risks having full awareness of the issues that stand in the way of effective of risk management.
