XLRI School of Business and Human Resources is organising a three-day workshop on inclusive financial innovation – ‘Making Finance and Insurance Markets Work for the Poor' – from March 1 at Jamshedpur.
Dr H.K. Pradhan, Professor of Finance & Economics at XLRI said: “We recognise that improving financial access to the asset poor and marginalized, including micro entrepreneurs, who are at the bottom of the economic pyramid, are better achieved through innovative experiments, designing appropriate financial contracts, unbundling risk of lenders and borrowers. These, we expect, can pave way for financial inclusion”.
The workshop consists of a series of speaker sessions; panel discussions; presentation of research papers, and presentation of case studies.
The workshop will provide a forum for interactions among researchers, policy makers as well as field level practitioners and chief executives already involved in financial inclusion efforts.
The event is planned to cover broadly the emerging areas of innovations in financial inclusion, social finance, insurance, and risk management for asset poor and marginalised communities. Over 60 speakers from industry, RBI, Nabard, SEBI, BSE, SBI, SIDBI, and other stake holders are to participate in the event.
