Delegates attending the Credit Summit 2020’s Alternative Lending Conference, sponsored by Lantern, will hear, from senior industry professionals, where the future of finance lies and how best to adapt to a changing landscape.
Attendees will hear how the UK’s affordability gap can be addressed, how those leading the sector are determining who should be using credit and how best to tackle vulnerability. Ines Maia, head of risk at LendingWorks, will lead the discussion.
Sessions throughout the Alternative Lending Conference will be chaired by Consumer Finance Association (CFA) chief executive Jason Wassell, who returns having hosted in 2019 and at the Lending Summit 2019.
Wassell recently wrote a column for Credit Strategy expressing concern over customers’ ability to access credit as the number of lenders in the high-cost, short-term market shrinks.
To that end, there will be a session analysing the future of alternative finance, focusing on legacy versus modern company foundations.
The session, delivered by Klarna’s senior analytics director, Alex Marsh, will also cover sustainability issues and ethical lending.
Nicholas Harding, chief executive of LendingWorks, Tom Newbould, chief marketing officer of Oakbrook Finance and James Jackson, chief executive of Auto Service Finance will take part in a panel discussion examining the intersection of digital tools and customer service.
Loans 2 Go chief legal officer and risk officer George Badejo-Adegbenga will take part in a panel exploring upcoming regulatory changes.
