BALI, INDONESIA | Clariden Global will be hosting a 2-day summit, Mobile Banking & Payments for Emerging Asia Summit 2012 - themed "Unleashing the Potential of Mobile Channels to Penetrate Emerging Markets in Asia", on 8 to 9 October, at Conrad Bali.
Gartner Inc, stated earlier this May that the Asia-Pacific will be the largest market for mobile banking in terms of the sheer number of users between 2011 and 2016. Emerging markets around the world have been embracing the mobile channel as a method to provide banking and financial services, with both banks and network operators working to reach out with solutions & pilots.
This has been especially true in emerging Asian countries with widespread geographies and differing range of development & facilities. Berg Insight estimated that there will be 894 million users globally by 2015, with growth being driven by efforts by operators and banks in developing countries (particularly in Asia) to bank the unbanked.
Mobile banking & payments hold the potential to improve lives across emerging markets. At the same time, a range of challenges must still be managed to reach commercialization and deliver customer value within this growing mobile ecosystem. An eclectic range of senior level mobile banking & mobile payments stakeholders will be featured including:
- TNP2K (National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction) Indonesia
- GM Bank of Luzon
- Standard Chartered Bank
