Panelists at the event added that collaboration between banks and fintechs must create enduring indigenous solutions capable of standing the test of time.

Founder, Riby, Salami Abolore, stated that resource inclusion, provision of complementary capacity to fintechs, establishment of Fintech focused department in banks headed by a top management staff are key to driving the partnership while fintechs must also ensure speed and compliance while innovating and integrating solutions.
The event also featured a panel of discussion on Banks & Fintechs and explored how they can collaborate better in driving financial services delivery and creation of shared values among key stakeholders.
