Corporate Lending: Technology Considerations for 2022 and beyond

Exclusive Webinar: February 24th, 2022


Corporate lending, unlike consumer lending, has always been relationship-driven with a relatively slower rate of digital adoption. The pandemic, however, has not only facilitated but also accelerated the adoption of digital in this sector, with banks and financial institutions rapidly pivoting to digital.

The webinar will discuss the key considerations (including challenges, benefits, critical success factors and the role of technology) that banks and financial institutions need to address as they embark on this transformation journey.
