Partnering with Fintech in a Rising Rate Environment

This session will discuss how enhanced credit models, digital customer acquisition strategies, and innovative products can help banks in a rising-rate environment manage ALM strategies. This session will provide an overview and key takeaways about partnering with FinTech to complement existing ALM strategies through technology and online consumer lending best practices.

A New Dawn in Mortgage Technology

Automation should take worries off a lender’s plate, not add to them. The challenges represented by sunsetted • or otherwise outdated • technology, however, can sometimes lead users to question whether any benefit is worth the disruption. We will discuss the current mortgage technology landscape, the challenges and opportunities represented by the status quo, and how lenders can win with a culture of continual, iterative technological innovation that adds value throughout the mortgage life cycle.
