Africa's financial industry platform

Giving voice to the most influential players of African finance​

Giving voice to the most influential players of African finance​

Africa’s development depends on building of an efficient, inclusive, and sustainable financial sector. To this end, AFIS stimulates dialogue between governments, regulators, and the leaders of the financial industry (banks, insurance companies, mobile money operators, fintech) in a continent whose growth potential is curtailed by a misdirection of available funds. The aim of AFIS is to build a robust financial industry to serve real economy and sustainable development.

Founded by Jeune Afrique Media Group and the AFRICA CEO FORUM, AFIS is actively committed to contributing to the success of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), which should accelerate the integration and growth of Africa’s financial sector.
