    The Annual Banking & Finance Conference 2018

    THEME : "Making Financial Inclusion a Reality in Africa: Connecting people to Banking & Financial Service" couldn’t be timelier. The 2016 edition was held in Ghana and the 2018 edition will be a continuation of the discussions and a preview of the implementation strides made thus far, as we continue to push the Financial Inclusion agenda in the continent.

    Banking and financial services must seek ways to increase their mass and tap into the financially excluded population (which is more than 60 %). The agenda to deliver financial services to those that banks have traditionally not reached should now more than ever be at the top of corporate growth strategy.

    The Africa Insurance & Reinsurance Conference, a regionally focused event now in its 8th edition has steadily become a gateway for the global and regional investors to engage local leaders as they seek ways to increase insurance penetration in the continent.

    THEMEInnovate to Capture the Growth Potential" .

    Africa continues to offer significant potential for future investment. Sustainable economic expansion and demographic transformation are making the insurance market more attractive, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. As the industry rides the wave of growth in this second fastest growing region in the World, the scale of opportunity is compelling. Low market penetration is giving way to rising consumer demand and new technologies. In this shifting landscape, organic growth is a greater priority than mergers and acquisitions (M&A) or new products.
