Prime (and Non-Prime) Time for Online Lending

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

About two-thirds of Americans have either no credit score, or scores below 700. And 44% percent don’t have $400 saved for an emergency. So what happens when an emergency strikes? Far too often, people are forced to turn to predatory lenders that have extremely high interest rates. Where is the fair, responsible, affordable credit for non-prime Americans? Who is innovating on their behalf? On the other hand, the future of online and marketplace lending is bright, with leading companies continuing to push the boundaries on customer experience, credit models and forging partnerships with traditional finance. Join a lively conversation with the chief executives of Elevate and Prosper on the nuances of effectively serving the credit needs of all consumers, across the credit spectrum.
