EVENT: IAMTN Africa Summit
DATE: 22-23 April 2020
VENUE: Radisson Blu Waterfront, Cape Town


In recent years, Cape Town has emerged as a significant financial services centre in Africa. Five major South African banks (First National Bank, ABSA, Standard Bank, Nedbank and Capitec) now have offices in the city and a number of renowned investment and financial advisors, such as PwC and Investec, are based there. It’s also one of the four African cities – along with Johannesburg, Nairobi and Lagos – that Findexable recently listed in the top 100 cities worldwide for fintech businesses.



As in 2019, the International Association of Money Transfer Networks (IAMTN) is again inviting payment professionals from all over the world to join its members for the major event in the cross border payments industry – the IAMTN Africa Summit. This year, our Africa Summit will be held on 22 and 23 April 2020 at the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa. The event is organised by IAMTN in cooperation with MFS Africa.


The Africa Summit will welcome many of the country’s financial services and fintech innovators, as well as participants from across Africa and indeed the wider world. The packed two-day agenda will look at the latest developments in payments and wallets in South Africa and the cross-border regional platforms that are currently transforming the wider African payments landscape. We will also drill down into the many cashless initiatives across the region, the latest regulatory updates and the benefits that innovation and fintech collaboration brings to the table.



One hot topic at the Africa Summit will be the continued growth and impact of mobile money, which is revolutionising the remittance experience. Disruptive fintech innovations, such as Safaricom’s M-PESA and other mobile money systems, are helping to boost financial inclusion. Some remittance recipients, for example, may opt to take the cash out from their mobile wallets when they receive the funds, but they also have the ability to stay cashless and use digital money in their transactions. Digital remittances are undoubtedly a big step towards democratising financial services.
