What it’s all about

The financial services industry continues to attract tech companies that transform how people and businesses spend, save, borrow, invest, and more. From capital markets to insurance and digital banking to wealth management. When the world locked down, it pushed financial institutions and their partners around the globe to rapidly automate a lot of their banking services and make them more customer-centric.

This massive market opportunity coupled with shifts in technology, demographics, and consumer expectation has not only made financial services re-evaluate their operations but now includes other consumer-orientated industries like retail, not for profit and education to name a few. These businesses are looking to disrupt themselves as a way of remaining relevant and ahead of the pack. The Africa Fintech Summit will explore the new and emerging technologies, trends and new business models that will drive the future of fintech across all industries.
