Pan Africa Digital Banking Transformation – Virtual Roundtable

18 Nov, 2021

Watch the event recording from the 18th of November below

Event overview

With unparalleled speed, the global banking landscape is being reshaped by a confluence of multiple market forces. Margins are shrinking and revenues have taken a hit. Consumers and corporates are accelerating digital banking adoption like never before. Furthermore, the pandemic has made a profound impact and has accelerated the urgency within global banks to transform holistically. Pan-African banks are some of the most efficient institutions in Africa’s financial industry, and we’ve seen a rapid rise in their footprint. The combination of global experience and the advantage of being locally based on the continent serving local markets provides an indisputable competitive edge. Cross-regional branches require these institutions to have seamlessly integrated technology and solutions that will offer the same user experience across all of their entities across their regional sites.

To keep pace with new realities, banks must lead with a purpose-driven approach and respond with a sound value proposition, tailored solutions, and highly efficient delivery of digital banking services. This is only possible when they modernize their legacy systems with a robust digital banking platform packed with the latest capabilities.
