Financial Services Volunteer Corps
The Financial Services Volunteer Corps (FSVC) is a not-for-profit private-public partnership helping to build sound banking and financial systems in transition and developing countries.
FSVC's core work concentrates on strengthening commercial banking systems, developing central bank capabilities, and building capital markets. Major additional areas of work include the legal framework for the financial system, payments system development, pension reform, and the combating of money laundering and financial corruption.
FSVC structures practical, results-oriented technical assistance and training missions staffed by financial sector practitioners who serve as unpaid volunteers. Over the past fifteen years, more than 5,500 experts from the financial, legal and regulatory communities have taken part in more than 1,100 FSVC missions, reaching nearly 30,000 counterparts in 30 developing and transition countries. FSVC currently operates its largest programs in Russia, the Balkans region, the Middle East, and Indonesia.
By recruiting currently employed professionals at the peak of their careers to serve as volunteers, FSVC is able to provide technical assistance that is objective, independent and state-of-the-art. In addition, recipients of FSVC's assistance develop valuable professional relationships with volunteers and establish institutional linkages with sponsoring institutions. These institutional linkages provide significant additional benefit to counterparts over the long term.
