PSBs could revolutionise the Nigeria financial services industry, and be potential challengers to the incumbents in the industry, as they usher in a new era of innovative payments to customers.

KPMG has developed a point of view on this development and provided detailed perspectives on the issues in this publication (Payment Service Banks - The 'Challenger' Banks in Nigeria) including:

  • An overview of PSBs and the implications for the Nigerian financial services landscape.
  • Emerging market trends and their implications for the operations of PSBs.
  • Potential levers of growth and profitability for PSBs, including how some of these levers can be adjusted for success.
  • Outstanding issues regarding the operations of PSBs that may require regulatory attention going forward.
  • A critical review of the India payments banks experience, on which the CBN has modelled PSBs, with insights from our KPMG colleagues in India.
