She said: “We are going to encourage operators to embrace the FinTech in their operations as we have seen the banks collaborating with the FinTech firms in providing services that eventually lead to reduction in cost of transactions, speed up processes and improve efficiency. The FinTech would have great impact in our market when all operators embrace this technology.

“In the capital market, the use of FinTech will eliminate the physical stress of going to the bank to open account for clients, and open Central Securities Clearing System, CSCS, account. It will also help reduce settlement cycle for securities transactions and reduce paper work that goes with cost among others. An investor who wants to partake in the capital market can stay in the comfort of his house to affect deals and so on.”
