Benefits of Financial Sector Strategies

TSC Global understands the need for financial policy makers and stakeholders to have a comprehensive and balanced view of the financial development needs in their country. Financial sector strategies help them achieve this by enabling them to assess the systemic risk of different policy options and make informed decisions. The quality of the strategies influences the financial sector outcomes, such as the level of financial depth, inclusion, efficiency, and stability. Evidence suggests that financial sector strategies can enhance financial sector deepening, inclusion, and stability, especially when they are of high quality. However, the impact of strategies on the efficiency of banks is not clear. One of the ways that financial sector strategies can improve financial sector outcomes is by strengthening the regulatory framework for finance.

TSC Global's Finance, Insurance, and Risk thematic team has worked with over 42 financial sector regulators worldwide, including Australasia, Pacific Island nations, South East, Central Asia, Far East Asia and South Asia, the African continent, and South America.


In Cambodia, our team has developed the financial sector strategy for the Government for over 15 years, starting with our first project with the Royal Government of Cambodia in 2007 and then the five-year reviews in 2012 and 2017. Our first role was only six years from the country's first financial sector blueprint for its nascent financial sector post-Khmer Rouge.
