The South African banking industry has widely been regarded as one of the best banking systems in the world. South Africa also boasts of a FinTech sector that plays an integral role, not only for the country, but for the African continent as a whole. The country has historically been a major trade and investment commercial hub for the African continent to do business globally.

Digital has been on the executive agenda of South Africa’s financial services industry for the past decade. It has been the major driving force behind tremendous changes across the industry, allowing innovation and healthy competition to flourish

As the sector continues to drive innovation, BFSI technology leaders find themselves looking for new ways to redefine their strategy comprehensively, outgrow competition and remain resilient.
