  2. 2. Our 2009 MMT Schedule MMT Africa: 5-6 May, Johannesburg MMT09 Global Summit: 26-27 October, Dubai MMT Southern Asia: 2-3 December, Grand Hyatt Mumbai Plus an MMT breakout @ Prepaid09, 16-17 June Under development for launch in 2010 MMT Latin America Plus an MMT Investment Forum (for entrepreneurs and VC)
  3. 3. The $5bn MMT opportunity • The World Bank estimates that formal remittances totalled $375bn in 2008, of which $283bn went to developing countries. Reducing remittance charges by 2-5% could increase the flow of formal remittances by 50-70%, encouraging the delivery of lower value remittances • The domestic remittance opportunity is even bigger: according to a 2007 survey by FinAccess, in the last 12 months 33.4% of Kenyans had sent or received a domestic money transfer compared to just 3.5% who had sent or received an international remittance • It costs around $400 to equip a mobile money agent. It costs around $250,000 to set up a branch, $10,000 to set up an ATM – mobile money will be the key to bringing financial services to rural areas • Safaricom’s M-PESA recently signed up their 5 millionth customer… in under 2 years of operation • 70% of mobile payment initiatives announced in the last 6 months have been in MMT, according to Juniper Research • Juniper also forecast that revenues derived from domestic and international MMT services will exceed $5bn globally by 2013
  4. 4. Our next event: MMT Africa Emperor’s Palace, May 5 & 6, Johannesburg 5 million M-PESA customers. Over 13 million subscribers in Kenya. 84% market share in FY2008… Safaricom have set the benchmark for maximising customer retention through Mobile Money Transfer (MMT) Services. MMT has become a strategic necessity in the battle for market share as mobile phone penetration in Africa soars from less than 5% in 2003 to over 50% by 2012. New mobile money services are being launched in Africa on a seemingly daily basis, and many will be speaking at MMT Africa. Attend MMT Africa to meet the MMT pioneers and hear market-tested project management techniques to ensure your MMT service is a success. MMT Africa is not just for Africans! We have capacity for 300 delegates and expect a global audience, not just the MMT service developers from across the African continent, but international investors, partners and those simply coming to learn from Africa’s mobile money pioneers.
