Banking the Unbanked with Mobile Solutions
Tuesday 15 September at 15.30, Exhibition Hall 1
In a world where one billion people own a mobile device but lack access to basic banking , Fiserv will answer the question: Will banks offer mobile financial services to cater to the needs of the unbanked and under-banked or will they be ‘left in the dust’ by the telcos? During a 30-minute theatre presentation, Wilde will speak about drivers of mobile adoption such as remittances and migration; why banks should care about mobile, in-country analysis and expected ROI.
“The rate of adoption of mobile financial services is unrivalled,” said Nick Wilde, managing director, Asia-Pacific, Bank Solutions, Fiserv, and presenter of the session. “In areas where there is high mobile penetration but low bank penetration due to lack of infrastructure or an unwillingness to open bank accounts, mobile remittances, payments and mobile banking presents a massive opportunity for financial services providers. The question is, will that provider be a bank or a telco?”
A Pre-Settlement Matching Case Study: Innovating Mission Critical Market Infrastructure Through the Delivery of Integrated Post-Trade Services
Wednesday 16 September, 14:00 in Exhibition Hall 3
In this joint presentation, Thomas and Gibson will provide a case study on SGX Prime, the pre-settlement matching service used by the Singapore Exchange. Implemented in October 2008, TradeFlow™ from Fiserv provides the core functionality behind SGX Prime, a service that allows for fast, efficient and effective transaction management across multiple instruments and transaction types. Presentation attendees will receive an overview of the SGX Prime Service, an outline of the implementation and a summary of the benefits the service has delivered.
“SGX Prime exemplifies how innovative post-trade solutions like TradeFlow can be deployed to redefine market infrastructures,” said Paul Thomas, managing director, international operations, Investment Services, Fiserv. “Through SGX Prime, the exchange has reduced risk and increased operational efficiency for users while increasing visibility and control. SGX’s investments in its post-trade infrastructure have helped it maintain its position as one of Asia’s most innovative exchanges”.
