Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) is the world’s leading organization on financial inclusion policy and regulation. A member-owned network, we empower policymakers to increase access and usage of quality financial services for the underserved through the formulation, implementation, and global advocacy of sustainable and inclusive policies.
Manage two strategic workplan pillars of AFI's European Representative Office (ERO), expanding collaboration with private sector partners and developed country policymaking and regulatory authorities in Europe and globally with the aim to (a) enhance technical knowledge of AFI members, (b) contribute to AFI's financial sustainability, and (c) advance AFI's position as a global financial inclusion policy thought leader. This role will report to and be supervised by the Director for Europe and Global Partnerships.
This is a local European hire position. While the preferred work location is in AFI's European Representative Office in Luxembourg, a partially-remote work arrangement from another European location may be considered, depending on situation and job requirements. As and when needed, the Manager will be required to travel in Europe and globally.
The AFI Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) Platform
Launched in 2014, the AFI PPD provides a range of well-tested modalities both at the global and regional levels for policymakers, regulators, and the private sector to engage in frank and issue-focused dialogue and knowledge exchange with the aim to enhance awareness and technical capacity of AFI members to develop and implement financial inclusion policies and regulations. The PPD Platform enriches the understanding among AFI members of market trends, challenges and opportunities and provides early exposure to innovative emerging technologies and business models. A significant focus of the AFI PPD is on the advancement of innovative and inclusive digital financial services, with gender-inclusive finance being a cross-cutting priority.
The AFI Developed-Developing Country Dialogue and Policy Peer Learning (3D) Platform
The AFI 3D Platform, implemented under the umbrella of AFI’s Sochi Accord on FinTech for Financial Inclusion brings together AFI members (financial policymakers from developing and emerging countries) and their policymaking peers from developed economies. The Platform provides unique opportunities to advance policy understandings on topics of converging priority for developing and developed country authorities, such as inclusive FinTech ecosystems, cybersecurity, digital financial literacy, data privacy and consumer protection. In recognition of the significant learning benefits for all participants, AFI members at the 2020 Annual General Meeting adopted a new category of “Observer” to enable developed country policymaking institutions, which are not qualified for AFI membership, to engage formally and systematically with the Alliance in the years ahead.
