BRUSSELS, 18 April 2017 – WSBI will take part on 27-28 April in the eight edition of the Responsible Finance Forum (RFF). Held in Berlin, the event theme for 2017 is “Opportunities and Risks in Digital Financial Services, Consumer Protection and Data Privacy". 

The RFF will discuss customer data protection and privacy issues against the background of the continuous, rapid digitization in the financial sector and the changing landscape of financial service providers. The current advances in data-enabled financial services delivery raise important opportunities and risks for low-income consumers in developing countries, as new types of data are used on a new, massive scale and new business models depend on the use and commercialization of data in a new fashion.

This year's forum is hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), preceding the Forum and Plenary of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) on 2-4 May 2017 in Berlin.

The Forum is co-organized by the Better Than Cash Alliance, Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, International Finance Cooperation (IFC), United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the World Bank.
