John Glen delivers speech at the CityUK’s annual conference

Industry News | 19/06/19

Minister John Glen gave a speech at the UK City Annual Conference where he referred to the government’s position on financial inclusion: “People should be confident that the right products and services will be there for them at the key moments of their lives. Those services also need to be there for the whole of society: for the elderly, the vulnerable, the young, and the less well-off. Because if our financial system only works for the wealthy, or the comfortable, then it’s not really working at all. The solution isn’t top-down legislation. Or government compelling lenders to act against their commercial instincts. The solution is to ensure the market is big and broad enough to meet all the varied needs within society.”
