Many of us are aware of the devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on small – medium sized businesses and individuals in particular industries such as travel and hospitality. We have seen record borrowing levels from SMEs across the UK and as the focus remains on improving economic health, lending will be crucial in reviving businesses that are struggling.
As the CBILS ended in March of this year and the government winds down loan amounts provided through the Recovery Loans Scheme, set to end on 31st June 2022, financial institutions and alternative lenders will be vital in providing the most suitable and accessible loans.
Borrowers have more choice than ever as new technologies emerge, challenger banks and alternative lenders are disrupting traditional lending models, offering personalised products, lending-as-a-service and more ways to make decisions around creditworthiness.
On 30th March 2022, our community of next generation lenders, loan providers, fintechs, credit and capital allocators will come together for the second edition of FTT Lending 3.0. From net zero to specialist lending, mortgage innovation, the SME makeover and personalised credit cards – join our rockstar speaker line up as we explore the technologies and innovations that are powering the future of lending.
Our one-day event will cover:
A new future for lending – transitioning to net zero
How can lenders revamp lending strategies to hit regulatory and government climate targets and incentivise customers in the drive to net zero?
The power of personalisation
Personalisation will play a crucial role in inclusive lending, empowering individuals who may have been rejected by traditional creditworthiness systems. Islamic finance, LGBTQ+ loans, minority-owned business lending and more.
Not just any credit card will do
Personalised rewards and repayment schemes to make everyday spending or life milestone purchases quicker and easier.
Is lending enough?
Explores the diversification of lending services and the new routes that lenders are taking. Will it be enough to offer lending alone?
