The Financial Services Volunteer Corps (FSVC) is a not-for-profit organization that advances economic development by strengthening financial sectors in developing countries. We believe that healthy financial systems are vital to promoting job creation, economic growth and a better quality of life.
How do we work?
FSVC delivers practical technical assistance to local partners by deploying senior financial sector professionals who serve as unpaid volunteer experts.
Our core areas of expertise include strengthening central banking capacity, improving commercial banking sectors, and developing robust capital markets.
We also work to improve access to financial services for SMEs, advance financial inclusion, strengthen public financial management, and combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
Who do we work with?
FSVC works with public and private sector institutions in host countries, including financial regulators, ministry officials, law enforcement representatives, banks and non-bank financial institutions, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and civil society representatives, among others.
What makes us different?
FSVC’s volunteer-based model makes it unique among its peers, as training and advice are inherently objective.
Moreover, our programs are demand-driven, and local partners are responsible for requesting targeted technical assistance to address self-identified challenges.
This dynamic leads to meaningful relationships built on mutual trust and understanding, ultimately resulting in sustainable progress and reform.
