Kassim was speaking during the launch of the Africa Fintech festival which Kenya will host from 12th to 15th June this year.

“Fintech regulation, we are going to talk about access to markets, how we empower our fintechs through impactful funding and we are expecting 300 organisations,” said Kassim.

He emphasised on the need for Fintechs in Kenya to collaborate and accelerate advancements in financial technology.  Industry leaders who will feature in the Fintech festival will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and collaborate on shaping the future of finance in Africa.

“There has to be some policy intervention to ensure that more people get into the digital ecosystem without hurting players who have rankly earned their market share in the ecosystem,” said Kassim.

Kenya aims to bridge the gap between technology and financial inclusion, particularly in underserved communities.
