The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into the financial sector has raised ethical concerns that need to be addressed. This paper analyzes the ethical implications of using AI in financial decision-making and emphasizes the importance of an ethical framework to ensure its fair and trustworthy deployment. The study explores various ethical considerations, including the need to address algorithmic bias, promote transparency and explainability in AI systems, and adhere to regulations that protect equity, accountability, and public trust. By synthesizing research and empirical evidence, the paper highlights the complex relationship between AI innovation and ethical integrity in finance. To tackle this issue, the paper proposes a comprehensive and actionable ethical framework that advocates for clear guidelines, governance structures, regular audits, and collaboration among stakeholders. This framework aims to maximize the potential of AI while minimizing negative impacts and unintended consequences. The study serves as a valuable resource for policymakers, industry professionals, researchers, and other stakeholders, facilitating informed discussions, evidence-based decision-making, and the development of best practices for responsible AI integration in the financial sector. The ultimate goal is to ensure fairness, transparency, and accountability while reaping the benefits of AI for both the financial sector and society.
