Innovations in lending and credit: Business model transformation, threats and opportunities
The once-opaque world of lending is experiencing a transformation, with new participants, new risk models, new propositions and new expectations ensuring that tomorrows market will be more competitive and more dynamic than ever before. New participants: Lending has been a central focus for Fintech investment over the last decade. As one of the few sustained profit centres for banks, it’s an obvious target for challengers. New perceptions: For years banks have honed and optimised their internal risk scorecards – a sophisticated world in which they have pursued outperformance by better understanding pricing and performance trade-offs. But for years traditional players have relied on legacy data sets and toolkits. In a world of democratised data – both in banking and beyond – the rules of risk prediction are being re-written. New propositions: Bank lending services for consumers and businesses have changed little in the last forty years – reflecting the organisational structure & product set of lenders rather than the complex, flexible needs of borrowers. More intelligent, relevant hybrid services are now arriving – and solving problems in a way that static legacy products can’t. New expectations: Lenders were once powerful dictators, to whom you ‘applied’ to be a customer. Modern customers, both businesses and individuals are challenging the power dynamic and demanding digital provisioning, real-time decisioning and that banks base their judgements on intelligent, rich data not supposition & black box metrics.

SME lending, where do the banks fit into this puzzle?
Without much to disrupt, does the “FinTech vs bank” discourse have a place in the SME space? Typically SME is a segment where banks haven’t seen value – but is that all beginning to change through hybrid lending models?

Disrupting SME lending, we’re just getting started
With Lending Club and Ondeck public, and Kabbage and Funding Circle going public soon, it is tempting to conclude that SME lending is maturing, particularly int he US and UK.  However we are seeing a second wave of global innovators in the SME lending space, of which we have three representatives today.  The purpose of the panel is to explore where the opportunities still lie in the sector, and whether some of the new players can reach $B scale.

Securely opening up financial data to create meaningful value propositions for lending
Open banking is going to open up alternative data sources to be utilised for credit scoring, but no one knows how it works long term. Are FinTechs right to go it alone or can banks provide the trusted brand augmented by core product offerings?
