The Digital Frontiers Institute (DFI) is focused on creating capacity and training digital finance professionals that are working to drive financial inclusion through the digitization of economies in the developing world.

A core issue in the financial inclusion ecosystem is a lack of awareness, understanding, and receptiveness to best practices in digital financial system design and implementation, especially among banking regulators in the emerging markets. Digital finance professionals can help decision-makers from government and banking to develop strategies to innovate and improve access to digital services for all citizens.

DFI provides a framework for professional learning, certification, and networking, which helps scale human capital in the sector. Its mission is to equip a new generation of digital financial professionals with the information, skills, and vision they need to guide society towards inclusive financial solutions.
