Alternative Lending

26 September 2017 | Amsterdam

A new perspective on the value chain of lending in Europe

At the Alternative Lending Event 2017 the value chain of lending will be dismantled and examined

At the Alternative Lending Event 2017 the value chain of lending will be dismantled and examined. As part of the disintermediation of banks, many new initiatives for ‘platform lending’ arise and challenge the existing financial institutions. At this event we will look at the different parts of the value chain of lending from the perspectives of both ‘high street banks’ and new platforms that focus on a specific niche.

Though mortgages are already a well-known asset class in the Netherlands for institutional investors, the possibilities offered by investing in SME, CRE and consumer loans are also gaining attention.

Key topics of the event:

  • Investment structure – Point of view from both investor and platform: why invest in this new structure?
  • Marketing: what is the best marketing strategy for today’s customer: how to reach him online and what is the best front end strategy?
  • Different types of origination platforms: SME, CRE, Mortgages and Consumer Loans in the spotlights.
  • Ongoing client contact: how to use data to keep track of your customer?

This event gives a great insight in the whole new order of lending and the new role banks play in it.

Please join us on the 26th of September in Amsterdam to hear all about it and meet your peers and build upon new relations.
