“We are happy to come back stronger with the third edition of the Finnovex Middle East Hybrid Summit. UAE was voted as the top destination in the world for delivering the best safety protocol standards and access to business opportunities to reconnect for real meaningful conversations, With the world slowly and cautiously opening up as we recover from the impact of COVID-19, connections between incumbents and fintech has never been so important.”

The third edition of Finnovex ME Hybrid Summit will be an ideal platform to connect and understand the evolving world of technology and banking innovation as the Middle East’s fintech sector is growing rapidly, fueled by low penetration of formal banking channels and a young demographic eager to adopt new digital solutions. 

Mr. Frederic de Melker, Managing Director of Personal Banking at RAKBANK, said, “Banks and fintech will have to co-exist to build a customer-centric financial ecosystem. The COVID-19 pandemic is essentially altering the digital usage behavior of bank clients. The IT ecosystems of many conventional organizations are approaching the end of their lifecycle and will have to be replaced in the foreseeable future. There is a growing need to develop digital skills across the sector.”

The international summit will bring together more than 400 delegates from top banks and financial institutions in the region who will discuss how technology is reimagining banking innovation for the year ahead through focused panel discussions and keynote presentations.
