Mobiles can help speed up inclusion banking: KPMG
"New technologies that facilitate branchless banking such as mobile phone banking and the internet, if extended properly, can help reach the financial inclusion objectives much faster, says a report by KPMG. 'The financial inclusion project and its focus on enrolling more and more customers provide a large opportunity for mobile banking'" KPMG said in a report 'Technology-enabled transformation in banking', released at the ET Banking Technology meet."

For Investors On the Go, the Best Apps
"As markets went berserk in August volatility, a record number of investors turned to smartphones and tablets to review their holdings and to execute trades.

The ranks of mobile traders are small, but at some brokerages they're growing faster than the market for smartphones. At TD Ameritrade, mobile usage of its app has more than doubled over the past year, due in part to a major boost in August. ShareBuilder, which introduced mobile investment banking this year, reports four to five million page views from mobile apps each month and that roughly 30,000 investor trades were executed in August, up 63% from July."
