Slated for July 26-27 this year at Johannesburg, the third edition of this summit will witness decision makers and senior professionals of the retail banking realm gathering and exploring opportunities in Africa's consumer banking business.
The GURU Panel, comprising of business leaders of the region's retail banking scene apart from Vinayak, will trigger discussions on 'Product innovation as the key to new business growth'. The panel discussion has been scheduled for 1700 hours on July 26, at the Hyatt Regency, Johannesburg.

"Africa is fast emerging as the hub of opportunities as far as the banking industry is concerned. While harnessing the unbanked population is a challenge by itself, retail players of the region are trying to conquer competition by meeting the diverse ends of differentiation and customer retention. The emphasis is now on product and pricing innovation, and SunTec assumes a pivotal role here by empowering banks with customer-centric capabilities. Our association with top banks of the region is another reason for us to be part of this premier financial services forum," said Vinayak Pillai.
