US Delivery Models and Channels Serving the Financially Underserved 2017 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Doing Well by Doing Good: Delivery Models and Channels Serving the Financially Underserved" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Lack of affordable formal banking solutions affects over 15 million adults in the United States. Even as employment numbers improve domestically, the number of unbanked individuals remains stubbornly high.

Financial inclusion has long been a goal in countries around the world. Finding ways to offer solutions that provide financial inclusion for the unbanked and underbanked-and do so profitably for the providers-is the topic of a new research report from the author titled Doing Well by Doing Good: Delivery Models and Channels Serving the Financially Underserved. Solutions that are succeeding in several developing economies are reviewed, and selected solutions in the United States are profiled.

Highlights of the report include:

  • The reasons why individuals are unbanked and the difficulties in supplying banking services to affect the population of unbanked in the U.S. materially
