The Future of Credit: Reimagining the Financing Ecosystem
The Future of Credit: Reimagining the Financing Ecosystem

As the retail industry has evolved, credit has remained an equally dynamic financing instrument, moving from early store layaway to today’s digital payments. But retail experiences are continuing to evolve beyond the capabilities of traditional credit and lending. Entrepreneur Max Levchin will share his thoughts on why we need to reimagine the financing ecosystem from the ground up in order to unlock the future of credit. Drawing from his experiences growing Affirm, Levchin will explain why the industry must be willing to embrace new technologies that enable personalized consumer engagement at scale. Levchin will also discuss why Affirm is committed to reinventing credit, starting with the belief that it should help improve consumers’ financial lives in addition to financing their purchases.

Forks, Spoons, and Knives: A Future of Competing Protocols and Networks

Financial capital has been flooding into cryptocurrency protocols and applications through the token funding mechanism, but many projects are now struggling to deploy that capital effectively to build network effects and organic demand for network capacity. The potential dynamics of competition amongst projects who have nearly unlimited financial capital but fierce competition for social and human capital will define the next generation of funds, companies, and proejcts in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

  • Bitcoin, Ethereum and Tezos are all decentralized ledgers powered by a blockchain. Bitcoin was the first public blockchain and introduced the first truly decentralized form of electronic cash. Ethereum followed suit by including smart-contracts in its platform, allowing a greater range of application to be developed. Tezos takes this concept one step further by letting participants directly control the rules of the network. It is designed to evolve, so that the next generation of ideas doesn’t have to start over as a new blockchain..

When Data and Underwriting Intersect, the Consumer Wins

When Data and Underwriting Intersect, the Consumer Wins

As data and algorithms permeate more and more of what we see, touch, read and even feel, companies face questions on how to use all this data to really help people make better decisions. The more specific you can get in your recommendations for members, the more trust and ultimately, loyalty you’re able to maintain. Thanks to machine learning from 5 terabytes of data collected daily, Credit Karma only surfaces the most appropriate products for each member to ensure they are matched with the product that makes the most financial sense for their profile. On a macro level, Credit Karma is using this data to address the issue of mispricing with Americans’ financial products. If Americans refinanced their auto loans, they could save $37 billion dollars alone. This is just one example of how we use technology as the bridge to match financial institutions and consumers.

Prepayment and Loan Performance
Prepayment and Loan Performance

In recent years, the personal loan market has seen double digit growth, largely in part to the emergence of FinTech lenders. In response, all lender types have been increasing their personal loan footprint. As with any closed-ended loan, prepayment risk is an important consideration. How long are your customers staying with your product? What are the indicators that a customer might exit your relationship sooner than you anticipated in your profitability models? In this study, we’ll look at how to best leverage consumer characteristics to differentiate those likely to prepay from those looking to maintain and leverage their personal loans.

From AI to ROI: How to Transform Lending with Intelligence

It’s the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and next-generation technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) are connecting businesses to customers in new ways. Traditional industry lines are blurring and customer expectations are evolving more rapidly than ever.

Nowhere is this more true than in the lending industry, which is becoming more competitive as regulatory and customer demands change and disruptive new entrants emerge. However, pioneering firms are using AI to shorten loan cycles, increase transparency, and drive internal alignment to better serve today’s borrowers.

Join us for this session to hear from executives at Salesforce and Kabbage about best practices for deploying AI in lending and how to use the technology to create the seamless and personalized experiences that borrowers expect.
