Out of Africa: A Global Fintech Revolution

When it comes to the Fintech revolution in Africa, we have to look at start-ups that are existing out of the continent but are making waves in how the African financial environment is evolving.

Join this panel to find out why African Fintech is more than just payments. Points to be discussed:

-Its about scoring, alternative methods of financing, setting investor expectations, building repeat business and mitigating risk.
-How do you ascribe meaning to results in order to create the ecosystem for African SME funding within a FinTech construct
-New ways to conduct credit risk assessment across all financial products (Key to unlock greater uptake of mortgages, loans, insurance etc)
-New financial products that meet the needs of various segments of African society (Microinsurance, govt welfare payments etc)
-Build upon the mobile revolution to provide products and services cheaply and virtual (Cost effective distribution and monitoring)
-Leverage mobile based fin-tech for quicker and more efficient disaster and health response (e.g. Ebola)
-Increase the flow of money across borders by drastically reducing the costs of remittances

    This session will feature Duena Blomstrom, the author of "Emotional Banking - Fixing Culture, Leveraging FinTech and Transforming Retail Banks into Brands " in conversation with bankers who have had to design and implement cultural change in their organisations."
