Reimagining Credit:
Panel discussion

Webinar | Wednesday 8 July 2020

Even before the current pandemic, there have been major trends driving change within the retail and business credit sector, including the introduction of positive Comprehensive Credit Reporting and the opportunities of Open Banking, new alternative credit products like ‘buy now, pay later’ and peer-to-peer financing. 

As we begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for access to credit to support consumers, sustain businesses and bolster the economy is even greater. Will existing risk models based on historical data and existing processes to approve and issue credit be sufficient?

In this moderated discussion, we ask our

panelists from fintechs and financial institutions what they see is key to reimagine credit for the future.

Wednesday, July 8, 2020

4:30pm Sydney | 12:00pm Bangalore | 1:30pm Bangkok | 2:30pm Singapore & Beijing

Duration: 60 minutes including 15 min Q&A
