About The Event

Africa is home to the second-largest banking market in the world in terms of growth and profitability. Digital transformation of the BFSI sector is no longer an attractive option, it is imperative for banks to survive.

Digital services are helping to fill the huge gaps in financial inclusion by providing access where it is most needed. Most banks will benefit from higher customer numbers in the longer term as they are actively investing in the architecture for the digital transformation now.

Banking on the success of the previous Editions of the Digital Banking Summit, Ghana, one of which was inaugurated by the First Deputy Governor of The Bank of Ghana, Hon. Dr. Maxwell Opoku-Afari and supported by the Bank of Ghana and the Nigerian House of Representatives, we are proud to present the 3rd Annual Africa Digital Banking Summit 2021 to be held on the 10th and 11th of November 2021 in a Virtual Format.

With Keynotes, Candid Conversations, Fire-Side Chat, and Focus Sessions we aim to outline the challenges and opportunities within the industry. Where, the content has been curated to educate, inspire and empower leaders to advance their pioneering strategies and integration - to effectively cultivate their operations to increase profitability in the post pandemic era.
