FinMark Trust is an independent non-profit trust with the purpose of ‘Making financial markets work for the poor, by promoting financial inclusion and regional financial integration. We pursue our core objective of making financial markets work for the poor through two principal programmes. The first happens through the creation and analysis of financial services demand side data to provide in-depth insights on both served and unserved consumers across the developing world. The second is through systematic financial sector inclusion and deepening programmes to overcome regulatory, supplier, and other market level barriers hampering the effective provision of services.
Through a symbiotic relationship between rigorous data collection and research activities, these programmes unlock financial and economic inclusion. Our work in data supports a global agenda, with focus being placed in the SADC region on the programmatic work.
FMT's mission of making financial markets work for the poor extends to ensuring economic inclusivity and linking financial inclusion to the real economy. This renewed focus of building inclusive financial sectors for individuals, MSME’s and small-scale farmers is robust and supported within the FMT development framework.
Regionally, FMT works closely with key stakeholders which include the Southern African Development Community (SADC), SADC Banking Association (SADC BA) and the Committee of Central Bank Governors in SADC (CCBG). At country level engagement with key partners at include Central Banks, Ministries of Finance, Ministries of SMME, Treasury Departments and National Statistics Officers.
