This session will discuss how innovative banks are recruiting and retaining talent by addressing their employees’ most pressing financial needs. You will learn:

The Power and Profitability of Digital Lending

Presented by Akouba

Beyond mortgage lending, other digital lending is a total addressable market of $1 trillion in the U.S., and loan origination volumes could reach $90 billion by 2020, over 350% of what it was just 5 years earlier.

Banks stand to benefit substantially by meeting changing customer expectations in this space. The most important step is expanding lending channels through user-friendly digital platforms to drive more loan volume and compete with non-bank lenders. You can win in this space by adopting lending technology that is affordable, efficient, automated and compliant. Whether your account holders are consumers looking for short-term, small-dollar loans to bridge income gaps, or businesses seeking commercial loans, do you have a process in place to digitally manage the entire transaction from application to funding?

Your bank will not be able to grow and meet borrower expectations if you continue to rely on traditional, manual processes and channels that could be automated. In this Webinar, Chris Rentner, Director of Digital Lending for Velocity Solutions and founder of Akouba explains how other banks and credit unions are already successfully using digital lending technology in retail and commercial markets to grow their loan volumes and create efficiency in their processes.
