Deadline for the Global Covid-19 Fintech Survey is Fast Approaching

The Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF), in partnership with the World Bank and the World Economic Forum, is conducting the most important survey in the history of fintech: the Global Covid-19 Fintech Market Rapid Assessment Survey. See more details in my coverage here.

While the original deadline for the survey was July 31, they have extended it through August 17. But that is the final deadline as all the surveys have to be analyzed for the report that is due out at the end of September. If you have not completed the survey yet I urge you to do so now.

The pandemic continues to wreak havoc on economies all over the world. Fintech is in a good position to help but we need to be heard. It is really important that every fintech company responds to the survey so we can get an accurate assessment of where we are right now as an industry that will inform policymakers around the world.

Time is Running Out: the Deadline is Monday

There are two versions of the survey:

  1. Global Alternative Finance Benchmarking & Covid-19 Rapid Assessment Survey
    For marketplace lending and crowdfunding platforms this combines the annual benchmarking study along with the Covid-19 survey.
  2. Global Covid-19 FinTech Market Rapid Assessment Survey
    For all other fintech companies, the above link with take you to the Covid-19 survey.

It is imperative that every fintech company completes the survey. So, if you haven’t done so yet please take some time before Monday, August 17 to complete. The industry thanks you.
