Lending IBS Intelligence, the world’s only pure-play Financial Technology research, advisory, and media firm recently held its first in-person conference in over two years on the Payments & Lending world in Mumbai.

In recent times, the lending marketplace has undergone a transformational change, driven and supported by FinTechs. Cross-border lending in APAC continues to rise progressively despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Globally, a mix of traditional and alternative lending channels compete for advantage. Digital lenders have been using non-conventional models to identify customers and assess their credit risk relying on artificial intelligence and big data analytics.

Furthermore, digitisation of the banking industry and developments in new technology have led to customers demanding a seamless experience and real-time payment services.

Finally, the Buy Now, Pay Later model has emerged globally amid an explosion of demand for cost-effectiveness and convenient payment. To truly understand these changes, IBSi invited experts from the industry to share their valuable insights at our recently held IBS Intelligence Payments & Lending Conference 2022.

Among the insights shared during the panel sessions by our high-profile guest speakers,  here are 5  key takeaways were:
