On-Demand Webinar - The SME Open Banking Revolution

The SME space is ripe for disruption in terms of open banking services. Arguably more complex to serve, yet with the potential to yield great benefits for all concerned, the time has come for banks to step up and address the issues that their business clients grapple with, and serve them better.

Open banking is about greater competition and improved accessibility for all concerned, including lending product variation and availability for small and medium businesses.

Banks need to know who they are dealing with in order to take this leap, and they need to get a richer, more holistic view on their business customers.

For the small business, the speed at which they can apply for a loan can be a make-or-break situation, and the limited range of products available to date can leave them hamstrung at a time when having just a slightly better control on their cashflow and liquidity can make all the difference.

SMEs don’t always know when they will need finance and it can be a stressful situation to find themselves in at the eleventh hour.

Cue data, and technology. Making use of the unprecedented levels of data banks now have at their fingertips has the potential to unlock benefits within an open banking ecosystem.

Seeing everything pertaining to an account, including historical transactional data, in one place, provides lenders with assurance in order to make lending decisions, based on stronger risk profiling through data analytics. Build real-time into the equation and businesses have much greater visibility and control in order to anticipate and mitigate cashflow bottlenecks.

Join this webinar by Finextra, in association with Experian to hear experts discuss:

  • The benefits greater use of data can unlock for both banks and businesses
  • The changes required to maximise these benefits
  • What additional services can supplement core systems through digital ID verification, agreement automation, e-signature and machine learning-based risk analytics

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

Investment and Asset Management Workshop

23rd March 2020

Join Finextra Research for its second Sustainable Finance Live event on 23 March 2020 to peel away the misnomers and ‘greenwashed’ ideas about sustainable finance and explore the ways the industry can take proactive steps to deliver the UN SDGs. Now open for registration, the one-day immersive event showcases a smattering of expert contributors who will introduce the day with insight into the green projects being launched across asset management and investment banking. Attendees will first Lean In to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development’s exploration of their experience accessing early stage investment, and Refinitiv’s discussion of the data reporting difficulties that face ESG-minded portfolio managers. Leaning Back, attendees will be given the opportunity to question industry leaders on the finer details of these concepts and projects at a series of roundtables. By the afternoon workshop session, it will be more than apparent that not all ESG polices are created equal, so it’s vital to cut through the hype to see precisely how each link in the value chain helps work towards achieving the UN SDGs. Attendees will finally Learn by Doing in the workshop by taking the key learnings from earlier sessions and carving out a real-world solution to an ESG dilemma posed at the outset of the event.
