“Financial health does not exist in a vacuum. It is inextricably linked to the real economy. Financial health contrives good personal health and education outcomes as well as reduced poverty and inequality,” said Judith Karl, Executive Secretary UNCDF while speaking at a conference on financial health held in Singapore in November 2019.
The conference organized by UNCDF brought together entrepreneurs, FinTechs, regulators and other players to discuss the concept of financial health as understood by different stakeholders, including its importance and relevance for programming of financial interventions and formulation of policies and regulations in the developing world.
