Digital Finance Africa 2022

Accelerating Digital Transformation in Financial Services: Crisis to Opportunity

Join 20+ visionary speakers and over 300 finance and technology leaders to discuss digital transformation in financial services.

Over the past year, the financial services industry has seen a rapid transformation in many areas including digital banking, payments, security, personalization, and financial inclusion. One thing that is certain is that financial services institutions have come to the realization that embracing technology and innovation has gone beyond a mere value-added benefit; it has become essential – not only for survival but for future growth opportunities.

As a result of the pandemic, new habits have developed and old patterns of behavior are being abandoned. Customers who had a fondness for in-person banking in the past have now come to appreciate branchless banking as well as new, digital payment solutions.

In addition, much of the hesitation around digital transformation by financial institutions no longer exists, as the push towards greater digitization has come from regulators, staff, and customers themselves. In other words, what were previously sources of constraints have become digital transformation enablers.

To stay competitive, fundamental changes and important strategic choices in the digitization of financial firms must take place.

From redefining the digital customer experience to taking a mobile-first view, IT News Africa’s Digital Finance Africa Summit seeks to supercharge your strategy by bringing together African financial services leaders and technology players to discuss the key factors that the industry must keep on the front burner as they embark on the journey to digitization.
