Evolving in the times of a Global Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has created one of the most complicated challenges faced by the financial sector globally. The impact of the pandemic on banking services has been severe due to demand reduction, income reduction, closure of public and private sector and the overall curb on economic activities.

The present situation has forced Saudi businesses, consumers and financial intermediaries to shift focus on crafting a strategic response across the fintech and banking ecosystem. The pandemic has undeniably acted as a catalyst in enabling rapid adoption and use of FinTech platforms as contactless offerings become the new norm.

This virtual event will explore the regional discourse on how the financial services industry should refocus on reopening and rebuilding the economy and how Fintech and digital technology enablers will influence the future of banking in the region.
