Preparations are underway for a seminar that is set to significantly influence the narrative on financial inclusion, financial literacy, innovation, Marketing and digitalization of the finance and banking industry in Sierra Leone.

Hosted by the Rokel Commercial Bank in collaboration with the Faculty of Accounting and Finance of the Institute of Public Administration and Management (IPAM), the seminar scheduled for the 21st January 2022 at the New Freetown City Hall will attract representatives from the public and private sector who will brainstorm on the aforementioned for the development of a roadmap that may influence national policy on how the financial market can be better utilized to stimulate growth through various innovation schemes.

It will essentially seek to develop a blue print (in the form of a communiqué) through which financial experts, technocrats, civil society and ordinary citizens can communicate their ideas on how they envisage a Sierra Leone that is ready to embrace new growth parameters through innovation and digitalization of the financial space.

The upcoming seminar will be the first of its kind to be hosted mainly by a financial institution like the Rokel Commercial Bank which had been a leading advocate for financial inclusion and financial literacy in Sierra Leone. On top of this, it is coming at a time when the bank itself has migrated into a more robust core banking system that has monumentally boosted its digitalization and expansion programmes.

The event will be climaxed by the launch of the Rokel Herald, a high quality print publication that chronicles the activities of the Rokel Commercial Bank as well as key information on its products and services.  The event will also witness the launch of an Executive Masters Degree Programme on Banking and Finance by the Institute of IPAM.
