I am honored and humbled that the Indian Yes Bank asked me to join their “Advisory Council for the India Fintech Opportunities Review”. I am especially honored to join a group of advisory council member such as Chris Skinner, Chris Gladhill, Devie Mohan, Shanti Mohan, Simon Cocking, Julie Lake, Avi Cohen, Brad Chun, Suvodeep Das and many more.
A few words about the bank and it’s fintech initiative: The Yes Bank is India's fifth largest private sector bank supporting India’s national program to "Make India Digital." Yes Bank's Fintech initiative is planned to serve as a platform for collaboration between Yes Bank and Fintech startups to create innovative solutions for the bank's 2+ million customers in 20 markets.
I was pretty impressed that the bank most recent unveiled “Yes Pay”, a wallet service that is the first to integrate the payment application with all IndiaStack APIs and National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI) products. That sounds exciting!
The India Fintech Opportunities Review, aims to provide a data-driven image of India's Fintech landscape and to provide a "road map" for creating and enabling Fintech ecosystem. The advisory council is participates also in providing recommendations to the government.
I think this will be a very exciting, fun and hopefully impactful project. I am happy to receive deeper insights into this exciting, vivid and huge market. A big thanks to the Yesbank and the Yesfintech team!
