Africa’s financial services markets are among the most stimulating in the world. The banking and financial services market in Africa is the second-fastest-growing and second-most profitable of any global region, and a locus of innovation.
The West African financial sector has been witnessing a wave of digital innovation that has fuelled services and applications that had the potential to really shake up the banking sector.
Banks, Fintechs, and financial institutions have been harnessing digital solutions designed to serve touchless and remote banking, which has unlocked opportunities for the millions of digitally connected diaspora that remains formally unbanked but economically active.
Central Banks in the region have been implementing policies to meet next-gen requirements of the evolved banking customer, this by analysing the challenges and successes of regions that have championed financial inclusion. The sector has also been adopting automated banking systems, advanced mobile money platforms, tailored credit and digitized lending facilities, and crypto-currencies for this promising market.
With this as a driver, ICSA presents Connected Banking – West Africa , formerly named the Africa Digital Banking Summit. Connected Banking – West Africa will deliberate on, and focus on developing solutions to, critical issues faced by banks and FIs on the West 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.
The Connected Banking Series 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.
