Timetric and Retail Banker International (RBI), the leading industry voice for retail banking, will be holding the RBI Asia Trailblazer 2015 Summit and Awards on 26th March 2015 at the Carlton Hotel, Singapore.

This year’s agenda focuses on the rising impact of digital channels in the industry, and how the region’s banks have aligned their strategies and propositions to cater to today’s tech-savvy customers. Senior retail banking professionals from Asia’s leading foreign and domestic banks will be discussing the innovation and mobility that needs to develop in retail banking, and the strategies that need to be adopted to stay ahead of the game.

The summit also touches on the growing opportunity of financial inclusion in Asia’s developed and emerging economies. Given Asia’s growing population relative to the ratio of those with access to basic financial services, financial inclusion experts will share their combined insights on how the region’s banks can create an ecosystem within and beyond the banking community to transform ‘banking the poor’ into a profitable business model.

The day summit will be followed by the prestigious RBI Asia Trailblazer Awards Gala dinner to commemorate Asia’s top banking innovators. Ruben Kempeneer, Timetric’s Regional Director for Asia Pacific, says: "The Awards continue to expand its reach as seen by year-on-year growth in the number of submissions received, and with the participation of domestic and foreign banks from across all regional markets of Asia Pacific."
