“Financial Sector Stability: Managing Risk in A Growing & Fast Changing Environment”
Context for 2018 Theme
In the recent past, banking & overall financial sector has witnessed a number of developments emanating from both domestic and external factors. Externally, there is growing uncertainty arising from the shifting geopolitical agenda, skewed towards protectionism, creating an unpredictable environment for players in the financial sector who provide the much-needed financing for cross border operations of multinational companies. In addition, technological innovations have aided the creation of new digital platforms that present new opportunities, enable reach to previously unserved market segments, widen choices and are available 24/7, but equally present risks that exist in the ICT space.
