Broadening the reach of Southern African remittances and money transfers

With more than $600 billion outgoing Southern African money transfers annually, cross-border payments are increasingly on the rise, and the market is ripe for continued innovation and opportunities for formidability. Developing countries find themselves benefitting more and more from increased and enhanced remittance inflows.

Technological advancements and innovation in the remittances arena has led to major developments and enhancements to money transfer processes and guarantees an ever-evolving playground for all operators in the field.

Rising trends in 2018 remittances include the emergence of mobile money remittance and online money transfers. Migration mobility has increased, and with greater opportunities so does a bolstering of regulatory barriers arise. The need for faster, cheaper and more efficient ways of transferring money from one country to another remains a top priority while ensuring best practice and adherence to regulatory matters.

Trade Conferences International’s fourth instalment of the Cross-Border Remittances and Money Transfers Conference seeks to equip players in the field with the stratagems and insights for contending with international players in the industry. This signature TCI event will update delegates on trends, structures and technologies within in the market in 2018 and beyond, whilst reinforcing competences in facing challenges and economic opportunities.

With the speaker panel being representative of major players in the industry, topics to be addressed will underline the latest news and how it will impact on industry players. Bringing insights into mobile money, technological innovation, financial crime and remittances, compliance, remittance integration and regulation under the microscope this is a must-attend event.

TCI looks forward to hosting professional dealing with remittances, money transfers, anti-money laundering, compliance, international payments, treasury, regulation and trade to attend this highly informative event. Join the barracks of last year’s attendees from, amongst others, ABSA, Central Africa Building Society, JP Morgan Chase, Investec, Grindrod Bank, Bidvest, FNB, Nedbank, Rand Merchant Bank, SA Reserve Bank, Standard Bank, Steward Bank and other major SADC banking institutions, money transfer operators, and service providers, who found the event a “great networking platform” with topical content capturing the essence of cross border remittances and money transfers.
