New Cutting-Edge Digital Money Viewports by Shift Thought

21 Feb 2013 • by Natalie Aster

The Digital Money Series covers innovations in different services involved in digitising money and providing improved financial services around the world. Digital Money services are no longer confined to a single industry, and this breaks down traditional models of competitive analysis. Through this series of viewports findings from an on-going in-depth analysis of the state of play of Digital Money Initiatives in each country are shared, within the context of the larger region and world-wide trends.

Digital Money in Bangladesh 2013. Already a pioneer in microfinance, Bangladesh is now in the process of adopting Mobile Financial Services (MFS) as part of a vision of “Digital Bangladesh”, to rapidly roll out services to the unbanked segment. The country is in the exciting early stage of development, but already we monitor over 33 Digital Money initiatives in a growth phase in 2013, launched by over 46 players from a range of industries. This viewport shares key trends including Branchless Banking, Government Payments and the new business models, with analytics that show how these are transforming Payment Systems in Bangladesh.

Digital Money in Nepal 2013. Nepal is currently undergoing a transformation in financial services, with the spread of branchless banking aided by the rapid penetration of mobile phones. Strategically located between India and China, it is also affected by the rapid changes in those countries.

We work with organisations around the world to shift the thinking from a focus on Mobile Money to planning for Digital Money.
