Course overview
The explosion of mobile-based banking in Africa and Asia has led banks
globally to reconsider whether the traditional brick and mortar setup for a bank is still ideal in every
market circumstance. At the same time, the expansion of telecoms into the mobile payments space
has called into question how profitable mobile banking and other alternative channels where banks
lag in distribution can be. This course addresses how participants can explore, develop, profit from
and risk manage alternative banking channels, including: mobile banking, ATMs, Agency banking
and e-banking. Starting with traditional brick and mortar branches, we explore the pros and cons of
alternative channels as well as the strategy’s compatibility with the bank’s product mix, marketplace
and market position. Much of our discussions centers on how to ensure that risks are
managed appropriately within the alternative channels and that an internal risk framework is
established to ensure strategic and operational risks have been assessed and incorporated.

In this 3 day course participants will learn:
  • The cost-benefit analysis of the various alternative banking channels, including:
  1. Agency banking
  2. Mobile banking
