As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact the way people live and work, and while progress is being made toward recovery, much uncertainty remains about the outlook for the virus and the evolution of mobility and travel restrictions this year. To ensure the safest and best possible experience for our SWIFT community across Africa, ARC 2021 will be a free, digital-only event.

Featuring senior speakers and strategic thinkers from across the industry and region, ARC 2021 will look at the impact of new and emerging technologies on the financial ecosystem in Africa as well as the opportunities that mass digitisation and data driven relationships present for the financial community.
