Fintech Fridays

Monday 26th April 2021

We are proud to announce our first Fintech Fridays session on May 14 with guest speakers from OpenPayd, Rapyd and NatWest.

The topic of this opening session is Embracing the Business Case for Serving Women.

The female economy is large, fast-growing and underserved — and fintechs are well-positioned to tap into it, as showcased in our research, “How Fintechs Can Profit from the Multi-Trillion-Dollar Female Economy.” Fintechs that track key performance indicators by sex show a compelling business case for serving the women’s market.

Sixty-four percent of fintechs that collect sex-disaggregated usage data found that female customers have similar or higher usage rates than men. The picture is also favorable for other key performance metrics, such as customer acquisition cost (CAC) and life-time value (LTV). However, few fintechs are aware of the size of the women’s market opportunity or of women’s dissatisfaction with current providers.

Join us as we kick-start the one-hour webinar with a panel of expert industry players sharing insights and recommendations on how fintechs and incumbent financial service providers can collaborate to elevate women’s financial experiences and accelerate their economic empowerment. This thought leadership segment will be followed by a spotlight on up-and-coming fintechs Dakko and Lucy and a meet-up for ecosystem players to build connections and create market opportunities.

Date: Friday, May 14
Time: 1 pm London Time (8am EST)
Duration: 1 hour

The session is open to non-members.
