African Innovator Round Table: Financial Innovation Summit: Advancing Financial Services Through Technolgy.
This summit will provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of technological issues that affect the development of Financial Services in Africa.
Innovation has already transformed the financial services industry. A decade ago, who expected the massive growth of e-banking and e-brokerage? Who envisioned the entry of new players such as retailers and telecommunications providers into financial services arena thanks to their ability to harness the power of innovative technology? Who predicted that technology would enable outsourcing and offshore contracting of core financial processes in low-cost countries such as India? The business environment continues to change today, and the financial services sector needs to confront many issues to remain competitive. In particular, technology and innovation are board-level issues; they create opportunities and pose threats.
To address this imminent need to create opportunities and address threats, ITNewsAfrica therefore proposes this unique roundtable to get top financial decision makers in South Africa/Africa to meet annually and discuss innovative ways that can make their organisations as well as the South African Economy formidable.
The Roundtable on Tech Innovation in Finance is an international multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together Finance executives, companies, non-governmental organizations, tech experts, governments, and inter-governmental agencies concerned with ensuring the tech integration into financial services for economic growth.
