The purpose of this research is to determine the role of Human Resource Development (HRD) in this emerging field of Social Finance. HRD researchers must move beyond the boundaries of performance and include voices that are missing from the discourse on Social Finance. The main research question this study seeks to answer is: What role should and can Human Resource Development play in the brave new world of Social Finance. Through financial technology disruption, and emerging technologies like Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, among others, and the urgent need to fill 2.5 trillion USD gap to achieve the SDGs, the pace of change is likely to accelerate. HRD has a vital role to play in this Brave New World of Social Finance. Attending to the human and developmental aspects of social finance organizations should be a critical issue for HRD.
