Following the current trends in the nation’s banking sector, Chief Executive Officer of Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe, will on Thursday meet his Microsoft counterpart, Satya Nadella to discuss issues and methods regarding how the bank can further leverage on technology to solidify banking security in the country.
This is because banking all over the world has gone beyond the normal brick and mortal venues to digital platforms.
Also, Access Bank has not soft pedaled on its commitment to provide innovative, secure and convenient banking services to its customers.
According to the bank, the meeting also provides an extensive opportunity for the Bank to further build on its current relationship with Microsoft, with discussion on how both companies can work together to revolutionize digital banking experience and create additional and new forms of value in Nigeria in Africa.
Scheduled to hold in the United States, Herbert Wigwe and Satya Nadella will discuss the Bank’s massive efforts to reform banking practices on the continent, creating easy and secured banking experience for customers, including quick methods to address financial inclusion, especially through Access Bank’s existing structures that promote financial technology such as mobile banking, the African Fintech Foundry, among many others.
Speaking on the meeting, Herbert Wigwe said “This meeting is very strategic for Access Bank and could not have come at a better time. Right now, we are much focused on providing innovative solutions and leveraging technology across various platforms in our quest to open Africa to the world which is our five-year goal.
