Financial technology matters. The digital age has unleashed a disruptive movement across Africa to attract previously “unbanked” individuals while building on the work of existing traditional banks.
Digitalization has ushered innovative financial technologies that offer a greater number of individuals access to mobile money, online payment processing, lending, and investing. They are being reinvented to fill in large gaps that existed before in these exciting, fast-growing markets.
And Nigeria is leading the field in many ways.
Exciting panel discussions on March 26 include the absolute cream of top experts from government, large corporations and the most exciting startups. The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the FinTech Association of Nigeria are the strategic partners of the event and have provided valuable support.
Editorial and communications support from CT Productions, an international media company producing promotional features, country reports being printed in The Economist Group’s publications alongside event organizing.
These times of rapid technological, economic and social change are exciting both in terms of new opportunities and the related challenges. Now more than ever, events such as “Fintech Nigeria: State of Play.” are vital for moving ahead.
