Data Analytics in Lending


Who will be there?

Over 100 data scientists & risk officers from Canadian lenders such as BFS Capital, Lendified, OnDeck, goeasy, RBC, Capital One, Borrowell, and many many more.

Why attend?

Network with founders and CEOs of the largest lenders and fintechs in Canada.

Learn how to build risk models that can thrive in a downturn.




Where to find data and how to use it?

It’s no secret that small businesses are underserved by traditional lenders. This is partially because the majority of SMEs are seeking loans too small for banks to underwrite. New age lenders like BFS Capital have been using data analytics to better understand and service SME needs with tools designed to address this credit gap.

Risk Modelling a Recession

Many of the leading online lenders have never weathered an economic downturn, meaning many of their adjudication models have never been tested in real world conditions. How are data driven lenders preparing for scenario b, c, and d… while still driving competitive returns? And what are new debt products and services that can capitalize on a recession?
