“The marketplace lending industry continues to experience sustained growth both in terms of loan originations and the number of market participants. At the same time, increasing delinquencies and regulatory pressures will certainly impact the future of the industry. To remain successful, lenders will need to continue to evolve their risk management practices and enhance their technology,” said Paul Greenwood, President and co-founder of GDS Link.
“Our credit risk management platform DataView360® and risk consulting and analytics group can help lenders more rapidly react to changing market dynamics and continue to successfully grow their portfolios and profitability,” said Greenwood.
“Opal Group is proud to bring together some of the thought leaders and market movers within the marketplace lending and alternative financing industry,” said Abe Wellington, chief executive officer of Opal Group. “The insights and networking that will be shared throughout the conference will certainly prove valuable to all of the platforms, debt and equity investors, bankers, regulatory experts and service providers within the field,” said Wellington.
According to Opal Group, the Summit is an educational forum designed for investors, issuers, platforms, underwriters, banks rating agencies, lawyers, service providers, accountant, and other related industry professionals.
