THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

 THE FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR CONFERENCE

Theme: Widening Access & Enhancing Growth

Venue:  Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa – Mombasa

Date: 19th – 21st June 2019

 A.  OVERVIEW

The link between sound and well-developed financial systems and economic growth is a fundamental one. Empirical evidence, both in developing and advanced economies, has shown that countries with developed financial systems grow at faster rates. Efficient and prudent allocations of resources by the financial system is crucial for productivity, economic development, equality of opportunity and poverty reduction. Getting therefore financial systems of developing countries to function more effectively in providing a full range of financial services is a task that will be well rewarded with economic growth. Financial institutions must strive to collaborate, partner and learn from non-financial players.

The financial services industry facilitates the management of resources and includes banks, credit and lending companies, insurance companies, as well as those companies providing services and technology to support them. In the past, this sector has been characterised by intense competition at the product and service levels, as well as a high degree of innovation. Globally, this industry is dominated by large multinational brands that use business intelligence to build and maintain a competitive edge.

This conference has been designed to assess issues impacting on the banking, finance and insurance sectors in the region; including a look at new and innovative financial technology solutions that will make financial inclusion possible and profitable. The event will provide a platform for debates, best practice, knowledge exchange and partnership among policy makers and other stakeholder seeking to achieve greater understanding of financial inclusion in the region.
