Banking in Sub-Saharan Africa: a Strategic Market Review Vol 5 Zambia
Searching Finance, May 2011, Pages: 52
Banking in Sub-Saharan Africa: a Strategic Market Review is a series of six reports that provide an in-depth analysis of the banking services markets of Botswana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe – economies for which reliable information is notoriously difficult to obtain.
Based on primary research and numerous statistical sources, these reports analyse the key demographic and competitive factors to present cohesive and comprehensive sets of strategic and tactical recommendations for both incumbents and entrants looking to develop a competitive edge in the market.
Senior bankers, consultants and industry analysts interested in regional banking markets will find these reports particularly helpful as the information will enable them to optimise/modify their current product and services offerings to suit customer needs, develop operating scenarios with measurable and actionable data, and devise evaluation platforms to measure sector performance.
The reports make it clear that the market for retail banking services in the region is in need of more financial institutions to engage local populations, thus providing a means for people to move into the formal economy. As the market develops and larger regional and supranational institutions enter and expand across sub-Saharan Africa armed with lower operating costs, the viability of existing organisations’ business model rests squarely on a brand identity that offers a clear value proposition to customers. Product development and positioning and consumer price-to-cost ratio are also key to viability. Sustainability will depend on a continuous process of successfully combining top-line growth with bottom-line control. Growth is likely to be multi-dimensional, originating from three key sources: new product growth, new customer growth, and organic growth.
