Let’s talk about digital identity with Amit Sharma, FinClusive.
In episode 51 of #LTADI, Amit Sharma, Founder and CEO at FinClusive, joins Oscar to delve into the topic of financial inclusion for individuals and organisations and the role of identity within it. Examining the potential solutions that can facilitate secure Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your Business (KYB) processes, while also promoting economic empowerment on a global scale, while highlighting the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) as a key example.
“Legal entity digital identities are equally as important as the individual identities because they form the gateway to be able to access essential and critical financial services.”
