As we recently celebrated the 75th Independence Day, it seems that the role of technology also helped us liberate, innovate and express ourselves in a new way.
Participating in the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, majority of us hoisted the national flag from our respective homes and contributed to the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign. Similarly, several tech-leaders also contributed to the essence through their Metaverse powered special campaigns.
Brands like MapmyIndia, Kiyaverse, ZionVerse and many others launched their Metaverse powered campaigns and connected with their users. Underlining this rising significance of Metaverse in the BFSI sector and the future opportunities associated with it, we dedicated the special issue of The Banking & Finance Post to this emerging and promising piece of technology.
In the cover story titled, Future of BFSI and the Metaverse Effect, we underlined how financial institutions around the world are exploring Metaverse and associated vistas to bring in the augmented and virtual reality component to the offerings.
Besides, we also included important perspectives of leaders from across the industry to understand how technology is reshaping the sector. The issue carries exclusive interactions and write-ups featuring Ajay Bhushan Pandey, Chairman, National Financial Reporting Authority, Shalini Warrier, Executive Director and business Jead- Retail, Federal Bank, Vignesh Shahane, MD & CEO, Ageas Federal Life Insurance, Mahesh Ramamoorthy, Chief Information Officer, YES BANK, Vinod Kumar, CIO, Fino Payments Bank, Harish Madaan, Director, industrial and commercial Bank of China ltd., Kunal Kathpal, Chief Risk Officer, Hinduja Leyland Finance., Sourabh Gupta, Co- Founder & CEO, Skit.ai, Jasmine Gupta, CEO, and co-founder LXME, Souvik Chaki, Business Head, Indus Net Technologies (INT.) and many more.
We believe that our latest issue carrying such a unique collection of tech-led conversations and opinions would be an interesting read. And, we are excited to see how Metaverse and many other emerging technologies are going to shape-up the BFSI sector in future, ensuring convenience and efficiencies to the internal force as well as the outside force (users), and also paying significant attention towards the cause of financial inclusion. Happy Reading!
