Successfully developing and distributing new products and services for maximum competitiveness
The popularity of this type of credit has mushroomed in the last decade, boosted unsurprisingly by the financial crisis. This type of lending is also aided by the ‘now’ culture of society ie People aren’t content to patiently save for something but want everything immediately.
However, for many observers, short-term lending has a negative reputation due to the extremely high interest rates charged and in recent years regulators have really concentrated efforts to provide regulation and consumer protection against what were regarded as exploitational policies and tactics used by the industry to make money. And there is a lot of money to be made as despite the often very high payback rates, this type of lending is still very popular due to the speed and ease of getting these loans.
This event will bring together short-term credit firms, regulators, financiers and solution providers to discuss best-practice for all aspects of this lucrative area of consumer finance.
