AFI created the GPF as a platform for central banks and other policymaking bodies in developing countries to engage in dialogue, and share knowledge and experiences in increasing access to financial services. The first GPF was held in 2009 under the theme, "Bringing smart policies to life."

The Forum has has become the world’s most important Forum on financial inclusion, and has consistently grown along with AFI, which now represents more than 100 institutions from 87 countries.
