Digital Financial Inclusion Supervision 1.0

Address the Destabilizing Effect of COVID-19 on the Current and Emerging Risks in Financial Systems

Monday, July 5, 2021 - Friday, August 6, 2021

Program Description and Objectives

The DFIS program was created through a partnership between Digital Frontiers Institute, Toronto Centre, and the Consultative Group for the Poor (CGAP) with support from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to provide practical and comprehensive learning experience to facilitate building of a framework for effective supervision of current and emerging risks to promote digital financial inclusion.

This course aims to equip regulators and supervisors with the skills to answer these questions:

  • How can DFS supervisory functions effectively, in a proportionate manner, based on size, scope, and risk profile of the financial services provider (FSP) be carried out in an inclusive manner?
  • How are financial stability and soundness issues, but also authorizations (licensing), financial inclusion, distribution, innovation (product and delivery), integrity, and consumer protection considered for inclusive DFS supervision?
  • How can the gender and financial inclusion lens be considered for inclusive DFS supervision?

This is a 4-week online course made up of four modules training that is offered in the DFI Campus environment. This is a time-specific course, which is offered in three specific time windows, starting in July 2021.

The program is a combination of self-paced learning modules and live virtual class calls. Students receive a 100% scholarship for all DFIS courses.

Who Should Attend?

The course is targeted at analysts or senior analysts, examiners, supervisors, experts or specialists, and mid- to senior-level managers with 3-5 years of work experience and minimum of a bachelor’s level degree/qualification. The program will be conducted in English.
