Fintech Summit 2018

Fintech is no longer about digitizing existing financial products. It’s about integrating financial services into applications and services you use every day. It’s a global phenomenon that cannot be ignored.

In Africa, more than anywhere the impact of Fintech has the potential to be both socially and economically transformative. Research from Statista’s latest report on Africa and MIddle East, shows that the transaction value in the Fintech market amounts to US$6.89billion in 2018. Incidentally, more Fintech companies are leveraging on technology to provide innovative financial service, including payment, lending, savings, financial advice and financial infrastructure, resulting in greater efficiency, better service and lowering of costs.

As this disruptive trend surges on, institutions worth their while are sourcing for solutions and engaging with visionaries dramatically reshaping the the fintech arena. It is from this background that CIO East Africa has organized the Africa Fintech Summit 2018, a two-day event that will gather disruptors, tech and finance professionals, regulators, and investors from across Africa to discuss the technologies revolutionizing finance.The Summit agenda will also offer a balanced schedule that will maximize your time and efforts, providing participants with brilliant ideas and strategies to positively change business practices.
