What are the Goal Posts? In Search of a Business Case for Youth Financial Services was presented under the Financial Services and Capabilities track at the 2012 Global Youth Economic Opportunities Conference. As the youth financial services industry continues to grow, key stakeholder groups are increasingly examining issues of sustainability and whether a business case exists for offering products to young people. Trends and critical issues for growing the field are discussed as well as the appropriate “goalposts” to evaluate delivering and scaling youth financial services in a sustainable manner.
