How we workFinancial services are powerful tools to help reduce poverty and create opportunity
We find and help build innovative companies with the potential to reach large numbers of underserved people and accelerate their growth by investing capital and providing strategic governance and advice.
We work with partners to create affordable digital solutions that build clients’ financial health and well-being. Accion Advisory leverages expertise in digital technologies to design, test, and deploy new financial products and services.
We conduct in-depth research and share our learnings to advance responsible financial solutions and systems. The Center for Financial Inclusion, an independent think tank housed at Accion, focuses on consumer protection, women’s economic inclusion, data risks and opportunities, and climate change.
