Beyond Financial Education: Employer Innovation in Financial Wellness

“Financial wellness” is a hot topic in the human resources world, but for many, the term is still synonymous with financial literacy classes or retirement plans. Yet a growing number of companies are going beyond the basics to offer benefits – often in partnership with financial services firms – that help employees manage day-to-day needs like paying down student debt, saving for emergencies, and covering short-term cash crunches. This panel of innovative employers will share their reasons for  pioneering these types of benefits and the impact they’re having on their employees and their businesses.

The Future of Financial Health

A decade ago, improving the financial lives of millions of underserved Americans started with the idea of access – paving a way for un- and underbanked consumers to access reputable products, quality services, and trustworthy advice and education. The dialogue quickly evolved to financial inclusion, as technology enabled access to better products. Now, we are in the age of financial health, where access and inclusion play a significant role, but where more sectors, domestic and global, than ever see their role in improving financial health for all. Join CFSI’s Jennifer Tescher in conversation with MetLife Foundation’s Evelyn Stark on the language and practice of financial health is changing business practice for the better – and where we can all go from here.

You can meet the cohort teams at the JPMorgan Chase & Co. sponsored reception starting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening in the attendee lounge.

10:35 AM - 11:00 AM

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Track 1

The Reality Gap: Understanding Financial Health in America

According to CFSI’s U.S. Financial Health Pulse, only 28 percent of Americans are financially healthy, yet 69 percent of financial services executives say that improving consumer financial health is a major priority for their business. Are financial service providers doing enough to improve their customers’ lives? Are there limits to what financial services can do in the face of serious economic challenges? And if industry leaders are truly brought into the idea of financial health, how can we go further faster? Join industry representatives for a lively discussion on what drives this disconnect, what it means for consumer trust in financial services organizations and beyond.

Track 2

Innovation Across the Ages: Designing for the Financial Health of the 50+

Financial institutions often design new products and innovate with millennials in mind. But these institutions miss other audiences by focusing solely on younger age groups. Older age cohorts present a prime opportunity for innovation, whether through digital technology or other means. Attendees to this session will hear from companies creating solutions for older individuals regarding innovation efforts, decisions made, and lessons learned.

Track 3

The Role of Healthcare: A Prescription for Better Financial Health

Physical and mental health are inextricably linked to financial health. Poor financial health can lead to toxic stress and chronic disease, while poor health can lead to devastating medical expenses and major financial insecurity. As partnerships form between healthcare and financial stakeholders, these two fields have an opportunity to join forces around a common framework that puts “health” at the center. In this session, we’ll discuss emerging cross-sector innovations that address financial and physical health outcomes, strategies for engaging partners, and opportunities to forge a culture that prioritizes financial health as essential to a person’s overall well-being.

12:45 PM - 2:00 PM

The Income Instability Tax: How to Manage Cash Gaps and Emergency Expenses

Financial Health for the Future of Work

The debate over the future of work has sparked critical conversations about the need to fundamentally rethink “social contracts” and stimulate reforms in areas such as labor retraining, health care benefits, and pension markets. Financial services, as well, need reimagination due to the rapidly evolving nature of jobs from fixed, salaried positions to less structured forms of employment.

Join PayPal for an interactive lunch session that explores themes from their newly-released report on the Financial Health for the Future of Work, including the four major trends that will impact the future of work and its impact on financial health : 1) Automation, Machine Learning and AI; 2) The Platform Economy; 3) Socio-Demographic Changes; and 4) Entrepreneurship.

Track 1

Fintech Focus: Designing from Day One to Build Trust With Consumers

Building and maintaining customer trust is a key challenge for financial services companies of all sizes. In this session, meet leading early-stage fintech companies that are using innovative methods to develop and grow user trust from day one. From branding strategy and research techniques to open communications and human-centric product design, we’ll explore the tactical efforts and overarching strategies of up-and-coming fintechs that are moving the needle on consumer financial health.

Track 2

Local Impact: Improving Financial Health, Community by Community

Place is an important factor in determining community members ability to save, spend, borrow and plan. During this session, we will discuss why place-based approaches are important and current initiatives that are improving financial health at the community level. The panelists will discuss different tools and approaches when assessing a community’s needs, how social determinants of health have an impact at the community level, designing interventions that include the community and lessons learned from previous place-based initiatives. Attendees will come away with clear ideas how they can implement place-based approaches when looking to improve financial health at the community level.

Track 3

Consumer Financial Health: Student Edition

Millions of students around the country are struggling with their financial health, often balancing complex lives at home, at school, and at work. But what are the factors with the biggest impact on a student’s financial life, and how can financial service providers, fintech players, and innovators use these insights to serve the financially vulnerable student? In this session, we’ll explore CFSI’s consumer financial health framework from a student’s perspective and hear from the industry leaders working directly with students to help more of them find sound financial footing.

Taking a Leap of Trust: The Role of New Technologies in the Relationship Between Financial Institutions and Consumer Trust

Advances in financial technology that remove humans from the equation have left many consumers uncertain about who to trust. Do consumers turn to legacy financial institutions, or do they place their trust in new technologies that promise transparent and immutable decision-making? This session will explore the opportunity for new technologies (such as blockchain, A.I, machine learning) to improve inclusion and consumer engagement through more transparent processes, as well as opportunities for financial institutions to leverage new tools to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and even return trust to consumers.

Track 2

Helping Consumers Save Today to Build for Tomorrow

A Federal Reserve study found that more than 40 percent of Americans couldn’t cover an unexpected $400 expense. But while the need for small-dollar savings is evident, the financial services industry has not yet come up with a viable business approach to encourage more people to save. As interest grows among financial institutions in enabling people to save, we’ll hear from a cross-section of established banks and innovative fintechs about what works in the savings space. Participants will walk away with an understanding of when people save, how they save, what they use savings for, and how these learnings can help inform better savings solutions.

Track 3Insurance

Double-Edged Data: How the Insurance Industry Can Optimize for Trust

From fitness trackers to smart homes, the insurance industry is beginning to realize the potential of connected devices and big data to drive improvements across the insurance value chain. Improved risk assessment, predictive maintenance, and proactive claims management all have the potential to align incentives and build trust between consumers and insurers. As data collection expands, however, privacy and security concerns also grow. Insurers’ underwriting and risk mitigation may also become less transparent and more inequitable as they apply increasingly sophisticated tools. Hear from companies and partnerships at the forefront of these issues who are attempting to maximize trust with consumers while minimizing risk.

5:30 PM - 6:45 PM


Innovation Reception

Be sure to plan some time for this year’s Innovator’s Row, where you will meet some of America’s most promising fintechs innovating for financial health.

Creating Solutions to the U.S. Emergency Savings Crisis

We are in the midst of an emergency savings crisis. 4 out of 10 Americans couldn’t come up with $400 without borrowing to cover an unexpected expense. Recent stories of government workers who found themselves in dire straits after missing one paycheck during the shutdown further illustrate our financial fragility. In response to this crisis, BlackRock Social Impact has launched the Emergency Savings Initiative, a multi-million, multi-year investment to help more than 1 million low- to moderate-income Americans build and grow their savings. Working with industry experts CFSI, Commonwealth, and Common Cents Lab, the BlackRock Emergency Savings Initiative aims to fuel innovation that will allow millions of people living on the edge to establish a stronger financial safety net. The Initiative will partner with leading employers, financial institutions, retailers, and fintechs to deliver effective, evidence-based solutions to help families thrive.

Join us as we present research and stories of how the savings crisis is impacting people across America, and how the Emergency Savings Initiative is working to test and scale savings innovations that will help more Americans establish a stronger financial safety net. First come, first served, limited seating available.

Pushing Progress for Good: The Future of the (Un) Scaled Economy

The forces of AI and “the economies of unscale” are taking every element of the twentieth-century economy apart and reassembling it in an entirely new way. As a result, we now have challenging choices to make about how to innovate and how to ensure that the algorithms we employ uphold our values as a society.  In conversation, CFSI CEO Jennifer Tescher and Hemant will explore critical themes from his book “Unscaled: How AI and a New Generation of Upstarts Are Creating the Economy of the Future”, including

  • How the forces of unscale are creating new opportunities across industries
  • Why the era of “Move Fast and Break Things” in is over
  • How AI can be used as a force of innovation — and good — in Financial Services, specifically for Main Street, USA, and the un- and underbanked

9:30 AM - 10:15 AM

Does the U.S. Need a National Data Privacy Law?

As high-profile stories of data breaches and misuse continue to make headlines, a global wave of policies that empower consumers to control more of their data is picking up speed. Around the world, recent regulations include UK Open Banking, GDPR in Europe, and Australia’s new Consumer Data Right. Here in the U.S., California’s sweeping new data privacy law raises the specter of a patchwork of conflicting state-level policies — unless the federal government decides to act first. Join us for a debate on whether the U.S. needs a comprehensive national policy for data sharing and privacy, and what we can learn from other countries’ experiences.
