Sazon is one of the keynote speakers at the MWC on “New Behavior for a New Reality,” a topic close to GCash’s story. GCash emerged as a crucial digital platform during the pandemic, allowing personal financial transactions online and enabling entrepreneurship despite movement restrictions.
Sazon will also speak at the “Fintech Summit: The Rise of Fintech Disruption” on how fintech is enabling the creation of powerful and disruptive solutions.
GCash is now a double unicorn valued at $2 billion with ~76 million users. It continues to expand financial services covering payments, cash transfers, credit, savings, wealth, insurance and investment products. It also features retail, food, wellness, travel, recreation and real estate services.
