AITEC Banking and Mobile Money COMESA

Now entering its tenth year as the region’s leading banking forum, AITEC Banking & Mobile Banking COMESA 2016 will address the key issues faced by the region’s increasingly dynamic financial services sector.

African banks have a great challenge in overcoming their heritage of colonial banking, which was designed to cater primarily for government, corporate and high-worth individuals. The bottom part of the pyramid has been badly neglected. Now that the mobile operators are setting the pace in terms of providing low-cost banking services, banks are scrambling to catch up. This they can do not only through technological innovation, but also through a customer-oriented corporate culture and service innovation.
