2. Have Monetary Easing and Lower Interest Rates Hurt Savers?
3. The Role of Governments in Protecting Workers from Income Shocks
4. Digitizing Finance and Financial inclusion.
5. Towards Building a Regional Household Savings Index
6. How to Build a Successful Investment Portfolio
7. Wealth Transfer: Multi-generational Wealth Planning

Description

The Arab Savings Conference is an annual event promoting Financial Literacy and empowering the region to build their Household Savings. Hosted by Fintech Robos in the heart of the Arabian Gulf- Bahrain, as a free virtual event that can be attended across the globe. The first Arab Household Savings Conference was held last year in Bahrain. The event, which drew a large number of global, regional, and local industry experts, painted a clear picture of how to go forward with the measures and changes needed to increase family savings and financial literacy in the region. It started with an overview of the region’s socioeconomic difficulties and fiscal policies, then zoomed in on the scale and nature of those challenges and underlying trends and ended with strong statements about what can be done. The themes of action highlighted that over-reliance on governments, and increasing longevity makes fiscal systems unsustainable. This year we continue this conversation with a wider variety of topics and a more focused debate in each session. To learn more about this year’s conference and sessions, go to the Agenda.
