The banking sector in Southern Africa is progressing towards becoming a ‘marketplace without boundaries’. This by the impending entry of new digital players who are challenging the status quo and driving unparalleled levels of innovation.
Technology is fast becoming a central factor in the banking and financial services industry generating new opportunities and contributing to the region’s financial sector. Financial institutions in the last decade have witnessed dramatic changes owing to rising competition, growing customer expectations, innovative compliance regulations, and more. The last year has also witnessed a drastic acceleration and shift to a cashless digital economy, with extraordinary growth in the number of e-payment transactions.
Banking, customer onboarding, engagement and retention, digital payments, and digital lending services greatly boosted the economic cogs forward. The banking and finance sector has been growing even in the face of turbulences and uncertainties, this based on the tenets of digital transformation, innovation, diversity, cooperation and sustainability.
With this as a driver, ICSA presents Connected Banking, formerly named the Africa Digital Banking Summit. Connected Banking – Southern Africa will deliberate on, and focus on developing solutions to, critical issues faced by banks and FIs on the East Africa region. The Summit is a not to be missed opportunity for experts, business people, and practitioners form the BFSI fraternity to discuss practical and cost-effective solutions to developing digital banking solutions.
Connected Banking is an ideal platform for networking with industry players; senior managers, decision-makers, and practitioners operating in the industry and making the most of banking technologies.
The Summit will host leaders and experts from across the region representing, Banks, Insurance Companies, FinTechs and TechFins, Digital and NeoBanks, Non-Banking Financial Organizations, Cooperatives, Investments funds, Asset Management Companies.
