FINANCIAL INNOVATIONS ROUNDTABLE

The Financial Innovations Roundtable (FIR), creates cross-sector partnerships among conventional and non-traditional lenders, investors, and markets to provide low-income communities with increased access to capital and financial services. FIR is not only a think tank, it is a “think-do” tank.
