About Connected Banking - West Africa

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.

About the conference

The banking sector in West 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 turbulence and uncertainties, this based on the tenets of digital transformation, innovation, diversity, cooperation and sustainability.
