Our alliances with powerful media channels, both traditional broadcast and print as well as innovators in the social media space, enable Ethico Live! to carry these breakthrough insights generated at our events into the mainstream arena of practical action. Here is a sample of some of our industry conversations that have grown out to reach the broader landscape of debate and action.

Leaders' Insights!

Chris Principe

CEO Chain2Trade, Inc. & Publisher FinFuture & Financial IT

A very positive story, if one that is not yet well understood, is unfolding in Africa. New technology, new ideas and new business models are producing new opportunities. The distinctions between telecom services providers, payments services providers and financial institutions are breaking down. In virtually all African countries, there are sufficient numbers of mobile phones ‐ which are not necessarily smartphones ‐ for previously unbanked people to have access to high quality financial services at low cost. Innovative companies are using Blockchain technology and crypto‐currencies to resolve fundamental problems such as lack of access to electricity and lack of access to global financial markets. Finnovation Africa highlights how FinTech is transforming Africa for the better, facilitating payments, boosting financial inclusion and developing new enterprises. However, the conference does much more than that, as it engages key stakeholders to reveal how the entire world is changing. In many ways, Africa is a FinTech leader, rather than a follower.

H.E. Ahmed Osman

Governor Central Bank of Djibouti

Islamic finance continues to offer significant potential to African countries who are looking to diversify their sources of funding and deliver strategic economic priorities. This potential is being realised most notably through Sukuk issuances which are enabling infrastructure development on the continent, as well as in the role Islamic banking is playing in boosting international trade & investment flows and deepening financial inclusion. Djibouti is naturally positioned as a gateway for the high-growth markets of East Africa and we are working to build an Islamic finance environment that is even more operational, structured, and efficient. With our recent implementation of a National Shariah Board and progress being made on the road to our first Sukuk, Djibouti is positioning Islamic finance as an important strategic pillar to achieve our goals as outlined in Vision 2035 with a strong focus on modernizing financial infrastructure, strengthening financial inclusion, streamlining the legal and regulatory framework and exploring the potential for innovations such as launching a digital currency.

Paul Muthaura

CEO Capital Markets Authority Kenya

Kenya has rapidly become an internationally recognised pace-setter for FinTech innovation as global players increasingly look to learn lessons especially in areas where the country has built world-class capabilities such as in mobile money. We have built a supporting infrastructure and are strengthening our regulatory framework to foster FinTech innovation and drive capital market activity to the next level. The Authority is at an advanced stage of implementing a Regulatory Sandbox to provide a safe space for innovative ideas to transition into the regulated environment. Across emerging markets, and particularly in Africa where there is an absence of the legacy infrastructure found in most developed economies, Fintech presents a transformational opportunity to leapfrog traditional costs and time delays in rolling out world class financial services infrastructure, products, services and distributions channels. The pioneers and experts gathering at Finnovation Kenya 2018 will provide critical insights on this exciting journey.

Konstantin Peric

Deputy Director Financial Services for the Poor Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Industry leaders from across the African and global FinTech industry will gather at Finnovation Africa: Uganda 2017. There they will harness the growing momentum around digital financial services into more inclusive and productive economies across Sub-Saharan Africa. As the formal economy grows, we see individuals, communities, and nations prosper, global and national leaders make progress on other key growth and development goals. When unbanked and underbanked families have access to digital financial services, everyone benefits.

Abdul Rahman M. Al-Baker

Executive Director - Financial Institutions Supervision Central Bank of Bahrain

The asset management industry is poised to enter an exciting stage in its evolution in the GCC region. The shape of the wealth and asset management sectors in the GCC is unique and the last two decades have confirmed the region’s position as an important financial hub for wealth and asset management, as well as a key trading centre connecting East and West. Indeed, the financial services industry has made significant contributions to the impressive economic growth rates across the GCC.
However, global economic headwinds, created by uncertainties in China and the decline in oil prices, are challenging the international asset management industry to respond to this changing investment landscape. Nevertheless, positive prospects continue to attract capital to the region in search of hig-quality investment opportunities. Bahrain is already the Gulf’s most established fund distribution centre and is an internationally recognized financial hub, with the financial services sector in Bahrain being not only the largest sector of the non-oil economy but also the largest employer.

Sunny Walia

General Manager Visa East Africa

With just 17% of people in Africa having access to formal financial services, almost a third of funding raised by African startups in 2017 was in the Fintech sector. Venture funding for African startups jumped by 51% to $195 million in 2017. And so, with over a hundred million dollars invested over the past ten years alone , the region’s Fintech industry is on the brink of a transformative breakthrough. At Visa, we believe the time is ripe to bring together its brightest minds and work on the next big idea in payments technology. With a clear goal of enabling cashless economies and financial inclusion, Visa is committed to fostering an entrepreneurial spirit and driving innovation in its payments landscape. To this end, we at Visa announced that its Visa’s Everywhere Initiative, a global innovation program that tasks start-ups to solve commerce challenges of tomorrow and further enhance their own product propositions and provide visionary solutions for Visa’s vast network of partners, will expand into the Sub Sahara Africa (SSA) region. Entrants in the first-ever Sub-Sahara Visa’s Everywhere Initiative (VEI)will have the opportunity to compete for a chance to win up to US$50,000, access to Visa’s products and services, expert mentorship and support from Visa and exposure to key Visa partners and clients. To date, the program has had nearly 2,100 participating startups across North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. Today, I am keen to participate in Finnovation Kenya 2018 to help shape the dialogue around the next steps on how banks and fintechs can collaborate with Visa to transform economies across the continent.
