Banking on the future of Fintech
Kuwait Fintech Summit is the definitive meeting place facilitating multi-stakeholder dialogue with power packed networking opportunities among C-Level executives, leading Industry experts, decision makers, policy makers and government officials from across the value chain to foster collaboration, discuss current challenges, business opportunities, develop market strategies, share knowledge and identify solutions aimed at shaping the future of Fintech.
The disruptive power of Fintech is being felt across the Middle East as governments look to diversify their economies by increasing uptake of innovation and technology. This has created immense opportunities for Fintech.
Technology has the potential to reform the face of banking, and the way in which these changes are adopted, is crucial. As such, authorities have identified digital transformation as integral to successfully driving economic growth in the New Kuwait 2035 long-term development strategy.
In Kuwait, the banking industry is in the midst of a revolution, with Fintech being a key driver of this much-needed change. The Central Bank of Kuwait is spearheading Fintech innovation, evidenced by the recently established Fintech Unit, which will be supporting the Fintech regulatory sandbox. Kuwait’s finance sector is perhaps the best-established in the GCC and is home to the world’s oldest sovereign wealth fund - Kuwait Investment Authority. Kuwait’s unique financial ecosystem allows essential institutions to be more agile in adopting new technologies.
Ongoing social distancing and other precautionary requirements have forced traditional financial institutions, especially in the MENA region, to hasten the implementation of their digital transformation plans, with customers and businesses demonstrating a heightened level of engagement with Fintech.
Accelerated digitization, with banks embracing new Fintech strategies has enabled them to develop products and services that meet existing and ever-changing customer and regulatory requirements, overcome current market challenges, while building resilient systems and enhancing operational efficiencies.
Fintech solutions will have an ongoing role to play in the economic recovery, while accelerating the emergence of an inclusive, robust, and innovative financial services industry.
