Owing to the changing macro-economic dynamics, the Philippines banking and financial services industry is witnessing rapid transformation. In particular the lending technology landscape in many banks and financial institutions is fragmented, prompting them to look at enhancing capabilities to meet changing consumer demand. Pennant with its future ready platform is geared to helping financial institutions in Philippines to unlock business value and create market differentiation.”

It started 4 years ago in Jakarta and what I really love about this event is that it has all the great minds together at one place and it has garnered such a good ecosystem and vibe. It has delegates from all the senior banks, insurance companies, fintech companies and these happen to be all ideal customer profiles that we are trying to target. It’s really good and we can’t wait for the next one.”
