Finnovation Africa: South Africa 2018 - A Powerful Purpose

The Digital Transformation of Banking - Driving Constructive Economic Outcomes from the FinTech Ecosystem in Africa

South Africa: A Landscape of Dynamic FinTech Transformation

South Africa’s FinTech adoption rate is expected to experience a major leap over the next few years. EY’s annual FinTech Adoption Index Report 2017 forecasted 71% growth, with the country ranking third in future growth behind only China and India. There is a greater number of technology hubs in South Africa than any other country on the continent with a larger amount of national and international investment in the sector. South Africa’s Reserve Bank has created a team which is dedicated to monitor the latest FinTech developments on payments, lending, deposit taking, investments and insurance, which will report directly to the Deputy Governor Francoise Groepe. South Africa is clearly in the midst of one of the most exciting phases of innovation and disruption in the financial sector.

Innovation in Financial Services: A Dynamic Event Tailor-Made for a Cutting-Edge Industry

Finnovation Africa: South Africa 2018 is a very different kind of event, a complete reboot, for a very different kind of industry. Deconstructed and shorn of all the usual, tired formats of the traditional convention and built from the ground up as a genuinely new event that is a ground-breaking in its focus as it is in its format and aspiring to be as innovative and transformative as the dynamic FinTech market it serves.

Combining a highly innovative and interactive event format with world-class speakers and more than 300 carefully selected participants, Finnovation Africa: South Africa 2018, to be held at the Radisson Blu Gautrain Johannesburg on the 6th of June 2018, will tackle the most pressing questions for the progress of FinTech and the positive transformation of banking in Africa, providing a platform for all stakeholders to engage in creating the future of financial services on the continent – from established banking powerhouses to FinTech start-ups.
