Bankers Committee members pay N 300,000.00 only


In recent years, there has been a flurry of new business start-ups, user cases, and applications developed, using financial technology. Financial technology has become a very hot topic in its own right within the technological community, with a likely potential to disrupt entire industries and services, especially the financial services sector. The growing Fintech adoption is partly attributable to the surge in e-commerce and increasing migration to smartphone. Research provides strong evidence that financial technology could transform existing business models and invent new forms of businesses in a profound way. Globally, financial institutions are being directly impacted by this rapidly expanding innovation, which has the potential to disrupt the strategy and business models of many financial institutions. The banking and especially the payment space is one of the most attractive segments for Fintechs in Nigeria. As part of its Payment Systems Vision (PSV) initiative to reform the payment industry, the Federal Government of Nigeria launched the cashless Nigeria Policy, giving rise to several innovative payment systems, propelled by changing consumer patterns, rising adoption of smartphones, increased internet coverage and deployment of ATMs. During this programme, leading industry and regulatory Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) will explore the complexities of financial technology and provide insights to participants on how best to provide oversight for this emerging potentially disruptive area, while assessing and utilizing this technology for smart growth and sustainable long-term value creation, including enhancing natural access to financial services indices. To enhance the effectiveness of Boards, in this themes area, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and FITC has designed this 2018 edition of the domestic Continuous Education Programme (CEP) for Directors of banks and other financial institutions. This edition of the programme, being the 13th in collaboration with the CBN and FITCs 34th edition from 1985, has been designed to bring stakeholders together, to discuss salient and practical issues with regards to board effectiveness, as well as generate ideas on other critical issues necessary for sustainable value creation by Boards.
