As Africa continues its growth trajectory and foreign investors – financial services organisations and others – seek new investment opportunities across the continent, Africa’s payment systems are becoming an increasingly important topic.
As Africa continues its growth trajectory and foreign investors – financial services organisations and others – seek new investmentopportunities across the continent, Africa’s payment systems arebecoming an increasingly important topic.
At KPMG, we are focussed on helping both private and public organisations respond to the transformation now underway across Africa’s payments landscape. That is why we have developed this series on payment developments in Africa. We believe that, by sharing our insights and knowledge, we can help drive Africa’s payments journey. In our first edition of Payment Developments in Africa, we offered a forward-looking perspective on the payment challenges facing Africa’s markets. We also examined the ‘silent revolution’ now underway across Africa’s financial services sector and looked at how Africa’s Financial Technology (FinTech) companies are helping markets leapfrog the legacy challenges faced in other parts of the world.
In this edition, we take a closer look at many of these trends and discuss how they are impacting the payment sector.
