FinMark Trust is an independent non-profit trust whose purpose is ‘Making financial markets work for the poor, by promoting financial inclusion and regional financial integration’. We pursue our core objective of making financial markets work for the poor through two principle programmes. The first is through the creation and analysis of financial services consumer data to provide in depth insights on both served and unserved consumers across the developing world. The second is through systematic financial sector inclusion and deepening programs to overcome regulatory, supplier and other market level barriers hampering the effective provision of services. Together, these programmes unlock financial inclusion and sector development through a symbiotic relationship between rigorous data collection and research activities. Our work can be found in South Africa, throughout the SADC region and the global arena.

Geographical focus: 

The project aims to improve secure access to well-located land for the urban poor in South Africa by supporting urban land markets and governance systems to work more effectively. This will help to reduce the number of people living in informal settlements without security of occupancy, help to generate provision of land that can be used productively, assist the development of functioning property markets, and develop tenure of security for the urban poor.
