In the lecture, Professor Beck will cover the efforts by developed and emerging markets to develop non-bank financial intermediaries to address funding gaps and challenges of financial inclusion. Often driven by financial innovation, this ranges from crowd-funding platforms as alternative to banks and capital markets to mobile money as new payment technology. While providing additional competition and possibly increasing financial system efficiency, they also pose challenges for regulators and possibly monetary policy makers. The lecture will be based on recent research and policy work in this area.
