About 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 East 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.
