保护数字化金融数据:标准制定机构可以做什么?

版本:English

数字化金融服务(DFS)为普惠金融挑战提供了重要的解决方案。如果不能正确使用DFS,就不可能实现基础广泛的普惠金融这一全球目标。
 
尽管DFS的优点获得了普遍认可,但也必须承认其具有风险。2016年普惠金融全球合作伙伴关系(GPFI)发布的白皮书《全球标准制定机构与普惠金融:不断演变的格局》强调了隐私和数据安全风险,并呼吁国际金融标准制定机构(SSB)探讨这些风险和可能采取的解决方案。为何需要关注,SSB应该采取哪些措施才能提高数据安全性?

众筹能帮助为无服务人群实现普惠金融吗?

“众筹”是一系列通过技术手段实现的金融创新,极有可能覆盖无服务和缺少服务的人群。这种基于市场的融资是从大量个人来源募集小额资金,通常利用在线平台,将供应与需求配对,从而省去了传统的金融中介。众筹虽然有可能成为普惠金融的下一个重大举措,但也会给借款人和贷款人带来风险,因此,需要更好地了解和及时应对。

数字化普惠金融时代的风险监管

版本: English

近年来,监管机构发现其职责范围显著扩大,而能力和资源却滞后,同时,国际社会尚未就提升监管有效性制定充足的指引。在数字化普惠金融不断推进的新兴市场和发展中经济体中,情况尤其如此。以往负责对少数银行进行审慎监管的监管机构现在发现自己也在监管微型金融机构和电子货币发行商,机构的任务范围中已增加了金融消费者保护、金融教育和普惠金融,而且必须随时掌握快速的技术创新(比如,FinTech(金融科技)企业数量剧增)。

世界各地的政策制定者和监管机构日渐肯定数字化金融服务为覆盖在金融方面被排除和缺少服务的客户所发挥的越来越大的作用,全球的标准制定机构(SSB也逐渐认识到其中的重要意义。
 
新发布的普惠金融全球合作伙伴关系GPFI)白皮书为国家层面的政策制定者、监督管理机构和SSB所面临的部分最关键的问题提供了路线图,并试图引导这些机构利用数字化渠道,将更多人群纳入正规金融体系,同时保证系统的稳定性,预防洗钱和恐怖主义融资等金融犯罪,保护金融消费者。

Phenomenal development: New MOOC draws economic policy lessons from South Korea’s transformation

Sheila Jagannathan's picture

The World Bank Group’s Open Learning Campus (OLC) launched a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) today — Policy Lessons from South Korea’s Development — through the edX platform, with approximately 7,000 global learners already registered. In this MOOC, prominent representatives of academic and research institutions in South Korea and the United States narrate a multi-faceted story of Korea’s economic growth. 
 
Why focus on South Korea? South Korea's transformation from poverty to prosperity in just three decades was virtually miraculous. Indeed, by almost any measure, South Korea is one of the greatest development success stories. South Korea’s income per capita rose nearly 250 times, from a mere $110 in 1962 to $27,440 in 2015. This rapid growth was achieved despite geopolitical uncertainties and a lack of natural resources. Today, South Korea is a major exporter of products such as semiconductors, automobiles, telecommunications equipment, and ships.

Islamic finance in Malaysia: Filling the gaps in financial inclusion

José de Luna-Martínez's picture



In the past decade, the Islamic finance industry has grown at double digits despite the weak global economic environment. By 2020, the Islamic finance industry is projected to reach $3 trillion in total assets with 1 billion users. However, despite its rapid growth and enormous potential, 7 out of 10 adults still do not have access to a bank account in Muslim countries. This means that 682 million adult Muslims still do not have an account at a banking institution. While some Muslim countries have high levels of account ownership (above 90 percent), there are others with less than 5 percent of their adult population who reported having a bank account.

Strengthening Lao PDR’s financial system by making room for failure

To function properly, a financial system needs to have two doors in place: an “entry” and an “exit”. The first one enables qualified local or foreign institutions to enter the marketplace to provide innovative products and services – such as savings, investments, credits, payments and insurance – to households and firms at competitive prices. The second facilitates the rapid and orderly dissolution of those financial intermediaries that are not able to survive competition, manage risks properly, or comply with rules and regulations.

How to scale up financial inclusion in ASEAN countries

Globally, around 2 billion people do not use formal financial services. In Southeast Asia, there are 264 million adults who are still “unbanked”; many of them save their money under the mattress and borrow from so-called “loan sharks”, paying exorbitant interest rates on a daily or weekly basis. Recognizing the importance of financial inclusion for economic development, the leaders of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) have made this one of their top priorities for the next five years.
 
Last week, the World Bank Group presented the latest data on financial inclusion in ASEAN to senior representatives of the ministries of finance and central banks of all 10 ASEAN member countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam). The session, held in Kuala Lumpur, is one of the joint activities the new World Bank Research and Knowledge Hub and Malaysia is undertaking to support financial inclusion around the world.
 

中国的新增银行账户数提升了全球普惠金融数据

根据2014全球普惠金融数据库(Global Findex)信息,中国每10个成年人中有将近8人拥有银行账户,比2011年增长15个百分点。过去三年,全球没有银行账户的人数从25亿降至20亿,来自中国的贡献最为重要。事实上,2014Findex数据显示,全世界5亿新增加的拥有银行账户的成年人中,超过三分之一(1.8 亿)生活在中国。

这一数据库显示出三种积极的发展态势。

1、村人口和贫困人口在新增的拥有银行账户的成年人中占比颇高

现在,在中国最贫困的20%群体中,66%拥有正规的银行账户,这一数据在过去三年增长了28个百分点。农村成年人中(绝大多数贫困人口居住在农村)拥有银行账户的人数也增长了20个百分 点,2014 年,74%的农村成年人拥有银行账户。女性在这样的增长中受益匪浅,目前在金融普惠方面,女性已经与男性程度相当。
