With an incredible opportunity to tap into 71% of the unbanked population, fintech growth in the Philippines has been nothing short of tremendous. Also, the advent of the Philippines’ first branchless, virtual-only banks in 2021 has just expedited the innovations in the country’s FSI.
It’s no surprise that Vietnam houses 220+ fintech companies that are leveraging on the region’s booming digitalization, favorable regulatory framework, and steady modernization initiatives by the government. To add more fuel to these developments the country has even established the National Strategy for Financial Inclusion (NSFI) 2022-2028.
Consequently, it has been forecasted that the Philippines’ fintech market will surge to a staggering mark of $44 billion by 2024. To support the government with its financial inclusion initiatives and provide a common platform for the burgeoning FSI & Tech community, Tradepass is hosting World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS) in Manila on 22-23 August 2023. The event will attract over 500 technology and business heads from the leading Banks, Insurance & Micro-Finance institutions across the country.
At a time when economists have estimated the Philippines’ digital economy to reach $92 billion by 2030, fintech as an industry has emerged as the primary enabler. The government has put its best foot forward with the ‘Digital Payments Transformation Roadmap 2020-2023’ to support the fintech companies, banks, and financial institutions across the board to incorporate cutting-edge innovations.
With more than 74% of the population owning mobile phones and the number of active fintech clients growing from 1.7 million in 2016 to 54.1 million people in 2021, it’s quite evident that the industry is going to skyrocket in the years to come.
