Add to calendar 11/08/2018 08:50 AM 11/08/2018 05:10 PM London Lending Summit The UK’s first and only conference exploring synergies and differences in the lending process from origination, product differentiation and risk in depth for three of the industry’s biggest sectors. Hilton London Bankside



In a fast-changing industry where innovation and disruption have become the “new norms”, Credit Strategy’s Lending Summit, sponsored by Experian, is the UK’s first 360-degree forum for senior professionals and advisors in the consumer, commercial and corporate lending spaces.


Uniting three conferences for lenders across the financial services sector, this is a unique, must-attend new event for incumbents and challengers.


Delivering business-critical intelligence and market insight, competitor benchmarking and high-level peer networking, The Lending Summit, sponsored by Experian, will explore and delineate the new lending eco-system and innovations in product origination, credit risk assessment, contact strategies, fintech and AI.


Collectively, these conferences provide critical insight on:

  • Product design and development
  • Risk, regulation and compliance
  • Direct and intermediary distribution channels
  • The customer journey in the next economic cycle
  • Best practice in credit risk assessment, data usage and AI integration
  • Innovation in collections and contact strategies

Delivering horizon perspectives on the core issues, challenges and synergies crucial to three elemental components of the UK lending landscape, this one-day summit brings together lenders with a combined loan-book value of more than £365bn.


The Lending Summit, sponsored by Experian, unites three conferences that Credit Strategy has previously curated and hosted individually. These featured:
