About the
FinTech Summit


In today’s fast-paced financial services sector, technology-based businesses and solutions offer an opportunity for innovation and creation of powerful new disruptive business models that can enhance bottom line performance for customers and shareholders alike.

More than 50% of the approximately 1 billion people in Sub Saharan Africa are under the age of 25 and the level of mobile penetration is currently over 40% (implying that an estimated 400 million people have mobile phones) and expected to reach over 50% by 2020 (GSMA 2016). In Nigeria, the mobile phone penetration is currently over 83% with about 150 million active phone lines (NCC July, 2016). While the increasing penetration of mobile phones and access to data services have significantly increased technology adoption in Africa, the level of financial inclusion on the continent is still relatively low i.e. <25% (AFDB, 2013). This gap presents opportunities to utilize technology to drive innovative financial services.

In recognition of the numerous opportunities and potentials in the African FinTech market, KPMG is organizing a one-day FinTech Summit in Lagos, Nigeria on Tuesday 22 November 2016 with the theme The FinTech Disruption – Understanding the Value Proposition”.

This event will attract a variety of top level decision makers and audiences from across West Africa’s leading financial service institutions – specifically banks, insurance companies, private equity and venture capital firms, and regulators amongst other stakeholders with interest in the FinTech space. The Summit comprises conference sessions featuring KPMG and industry thought leaders, demo sessions by FinTechs and networking opportunities.
