Consistent with the World Economic Forum’s mission of applying a multi-stakeholder approach to address issues of global impact, the creation of this report involved extensive outreach and dialogue with the financial services community, innovation community, academia and a large number of financial technology startups.
The dialogue included numerous interviews and interactive sessions to discuss the insights and opportunities for collaborative action. Sincere thanks are extended to the industry experts and emerging disruptors who contributed their unique insights to this report. In particular, the members of the Project’s Steering Committee and Working Group, who are introduced in the following pages, played an invaluable role as experts and patient mentors. We are also very grateful for the generous commitment and support to Deloitte Consulting LLP in the U.S., an entity within the Deloitte1 network, in its capacity as the official professional services advisor to the World Economic Forum for this project.
