With Nigeria housing the largest population in the MEA region of which 65% are under 35 years, it has got the best ingredients for the growth of fintech. About 250 fintech companies are already leveraging on the country’s 187 million mobile connections, where an internet penetration rate of 51% is further bolstering the industry.

As the leading fintech player in the continent, Nigeria garnered $1.37 billion out of the $4 billion funding raised in Africa, where the country’s fintech operators accounted for 63%. In the quest to advance the potential of the country’s payments system with the objective of making it seamless and accessible for all Nigerians, the Central Bank of Nigeria has even launched Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) called eNaira.

Paying heed to the situation and thereby providing a common platform for the burgeoning FSI & Tech community, Tradepass is hosting World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS) in Nigeria on 6 – 7 June 2023. The event will host over 500 technology and business heads from the leading Banks, Insurance & Micro-Finance institutions across the country
