AITEC Banking And Mobile Money West Africa 2013 – March 13 [EVENT]

The issue of mobile money and mobile banking has been an ongoing discussion in Nigeria for some time now. 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 mobile operators are setting the pace in terms of providing low-cost banking services, banks are scrambling to catch up. They can do this not only through technological innovation, but also through a customer-oriented corporate culture and service innovation.

On the 13th and 14th of March, 2013, *AITEC will be hosting the 6th annual Banking and Mobile Money West Africa Conference in Lagos.

Other topics to be discussed at the event include:

  • The Challenge and Opportunities of Mobile
  • The New Era of Regional Banking
  • Regulation vs Innovation
  • Microfinance: Deeping financial services
  • Islamic Banking: An alternative model for equitable banking
  • Conference Framework
