Reducing Vulnerability in the Digital Era: Using Financial Services to Help Clients Manage Risks

Craig Churchill

This course considers a set of client needs – to manage risks more effectively – and explores how financial institutions can respond by offering a menu of savings, credit and insurance services (and even risk prevention). It is important for financial service providers (FSPs) to understand how clients might use these products, singularly and together, and how to design and deliver them in ways that enhances their effectiveness. By helping clients to manage risks, the FSPs are in turn managing their own risks. The emergence of digital finance is creating new opportunities for FSPs to offer this more holistic package. The course is particularly relevant today in light of climate change and other emerging risks and will give particular attention to natural disasters and health risks.

Intended audience: This course is relevant for all types of participants: practitioners, policymakers, funders, and consultants.
