This means regulating banks and insurers, catalysing innovators and mobilising the kinds of design thinking that will impress consumers, boost uptake and ensure a high multiplier of impact.

Our panel blends the necessary ingredients of financial markets regulation, technological innovation at scale and grass roots creativity.
