"Fintech for the people"

As the global standard-setter for payment, clearing and settlement activity, the CPMI works to support financial stability by enhancing the risk management and supervision of financial market infrastructures. In my remarks this morning, I would like to focus on an often overlooked objective for the committee and many of our members - enhancing financial inclusion. Expanding access to payment services is an integral part of our work and a key regulatory priority.
