Retail Banking Summit in Asia


Nurture startup mindset to reinvent banking

Customers and marketplaces in Asia are going through rapid changes. Banks in the region have embraced new technologies and have started to transform themselves. However the industry has to undertake a more aggressive change due to the creeping challenge of non-industry players. More particularly Asian and global technology giants have started stepping on the toes of the banking industry,  which is evident from their recent launches of digital wallets, cross border payment solutions and their aggressive focus on capturing an increasing share of customers’ wallets and imagination.

Investors and markets look more favorably on the technology giants than the banking industry. As banks look to transform, they are increasingly discovering in Fintechs and regulators, their partners to help adopt innovations and increase customer experience as well as engagement.

The Fifth edition of Efma’s Retail Banking Summit in Asia will focus on the key priorities and most pressing challenges faced by the banking industry in the region. Like previous editions, this year’s event will bring together the most successful banks and companies in the retail financial services ecosystem from Asia and across the world.

This event is an opportunity to learn from the top leaders about how they are doing it, and what would be the best strategy to go about it. They will also feature the most disruptive innovations and best practices in digital transformation.

This is an opportunity to learn from the top leaders about the next digital wave in finance, and if you wish to stay ahead of the curve, book your place now!
