With the robust growth of smartphone and internet penetration, Latin America has become the second-fastest growing mobile region in the world. FinTech is thriving in the region however it is still far from reaching its full potential. According to the World Bank, only 51% of the population in the region has a bank account. At the same time, the unbanked segment stimulated by a friendly policy for digital money and financial inclusion especially in some countries like Mexico, Colombia and Peru, creates enormous opportunities for growth, innovation and business exposure in the region.
Latin America´s fintech innovators will reunite at M2Banking & Fintech Latam conference on August 7th – 9th, 2018 in San Francisco to discuss and analyze how the latest digital channels, especially mobile, are transforming the banking sector in the region.
In its 9th year, and 3rd year in San Francisco, the event brings together the key players of Latin America’s fintech ecosystem for 3 intensive days focusing on mobile money, payments and financial innovation in the region.
