Capturing the opportunities of digital payments in the Philippines

About this event


Digital payments in Asia are entering a new phase, driven by regulators’ efforts at the cross-country and subregional levels, and advancements in individual markets. The finance industry is also increasingly focusing on cross-border payments, which are expected to exceed US$150 trillion by 2026. 

Banks need to adopt modern technologies to provide agile, scalable, and flexible payment solutions that can adapt to the rapidly changing digital payments landscape. Where are Philippine banks in this journey towards digital payments modernisation?

This 22 November 2023, FutureCIO, in partnership with Finastra and Red Hat, will host an exclusive roundtable dialogue with senior executives from the Philippines leading banks. We will look at the ongoing challenges banks face as they look to tap the accelerating digital payments landscape in the country and address the following:

  • Key considerations in modernizing bank’s payment future
