Archive: Paper delivered to the Commonwealth Finance Ministers on Banking the Unbanked - 2005

In 2004-05 I looked at the issue of banking the unbanked, as well as the topic of micro-finance. Much of my analysis fed into internal business at Standard Chartered, where I was the global Head of Research at the time. 

I also represented Standard Chartered at a private dinner of major U.K. Banks’ CEOs,

also attended by two senior Whitehall figures, to discuss banking the unbanked. 

Around that time I was also involved with the Commonwealth Secretariat and on their behalf wrote this paper, which was delivered at the annual meeting of Commonwealth Finance Ministers.  This paper is entitled, “Banking the Unbanked”.
