Is Alternative Data Key to Financial Inclusion in Philippines?

Philippines Must Not Overlook Fraud Prevention in It’s Financial Inclusion Journey

Despite significant headway made in improving access to financial services in the Philippines, blindspots in data still remain a major roadblock to this goal.

Whether it is credit data to determine credit worthiness or identity data for KYC/AML, solving this piece of the puzzle remains key to the Philippines’ goal of elevating financial inclusion.

While unbanked populations can benefit greatly from advances in fintech services and online banking, these digital solutions also pose new risks which must be addressed properly..

Key challenges in combatting fraud for financial inclusion effectively:
