Some Banks Are Still on Mars, While Others Are Conquering Venus

FSI ecosystem is currently undergoing a huge transformation. With so many new players on the market, banks’ role have been shifting and changing. In order to remain competitive, smart banks have taken a strategic decision to slowly let go part of their “precious” old legacy roles in the ecosystem. Those banks have started re-shaping their approach and decided to perceive the rise of FinTechs as an opportunity rather than a threat.

This presentation will cover an overview of the Financial/Digital Services Ecosystems in Middle East and how some banks have started embracing the change by shaping up their strategies around this.
