A (R)evolution in Accessing Finance

The lending landscape has gone through major evolution in the last 10 years. New technology, changing customer demands, and capital looking to achieve greater returns have transformed the way we borrow, lend, and transfer money using technology on the go.

Banks face a variety of challenges from increasing pressure on margins, regulatory demands, customer demands for speed and a frictionless user experience at a lower cost, and competition from predominantly platform-led, marketplace or peer to peer alternative finance companies.

The institutional finance markets are being challenged by platform-led investment opportunities, opening up the source of and options for capital while shortening capital raising cycles and putting pressure on margins.

Forward-looking institutions are developing partnerships with alternative finance companies to grow their markets, share fundamental capabilities, and expand their expertise.

How has the lending landscape been disrupted in the last 10 years by payday lenders, digital lenders, equity crowdfunders, asset and invoice financiers and the rest!

How have we changed the way we borrow money and invest?
How are banks and alternative lenders using new technologies to assess credit worthiness?
How can banks stay competitive by implementing hybrid lending strategies, partnering with marketplace lending platforms or creating their own?
