X Topic Abstract

20.6% Indians do not have access to formal banking. However, with the rising annual income per household in rural India from 2.8% to 3.6 percent by 2025, banking and financial institutions have a huge opportunity – but only if it moves fast enough to tap into a market that is buzzing with aspirations and billions of mobile phones.

Innovation in Fintech has been fast-paced, but it cannot achieve scale unless it reaches out to the rural consumer base. Going forward, the need to introduce financial literacy to rural consumers on their mobile phones will be critical to Fintech’s growth, and so will be collecting data from rural consumers to better understand their needs and aspirations.

How can we transcend transcend language, literacy, and connectivity barriers to provide critical insights to Fintech industry and help it reach out to the last mile audience?

X Topic Abstract

Today, an idea can progress from paper to reality almost overnight to become the "new normal." People used to Xerox a document, now they “Uber it” when taking a cab. It is hard to predict how the future of financial services will look like in ten years, however, some scenarios are starting to stand out as inevitable. One of those is the concept of an open platform. As the FinTech industry evolves, having an open platform and its tangible business benefits have been constantly in discussion. While most of us tend to define open platform in different ways, a common view is that an open platform is something that one can leverage further to build more. With a clear open platform strategy and focus on collaboration, financial institutions will be able to offer services to help them stay ahead of disruption, and perhaps become disrupters themselves.

The 20 minute presentation will illustrate how the power of Open Platform can be leveraged to drive innovation and efficiency in the FinTech space.

X Topic Abstract

Digital lending in India has begun to show signs of prominence and has caught the attention of traditional lenders and startups alike. Alternative lending as an industry is poised to gain tremendous momentum because of the massive increase in digital data points that the nontraditional lenders have access to. Moreover, the untapped potential of SME lending market and the increasing need for working capital loan has led to demand of alternative lending platforms. Moreover, the sheer pace of loan approval and disbursal that these platforms provide pits them higher than the traditional banks and financial institution. Investors have also been quite positive about this sector as more than $300 million has been pumped in lending startups in the past one year. The fact that the market for SME lending is largely coupled with scaling potential for these startups has led to active investment in this sector.

With the digital lending industry growing at a rapid pace, Mr. Rahul Sanklecha, VP, Credit and Operations, Lendingkart Group, would like to speak on some of the trends dictating the growth of digital lending industry in India.

X Topic Abstract

The most prime and untapped userbase, looking for solution for their problems. Lack of education,exposure and awareness, disconnect from urban areas, disparate income groups and unfulfilled demand. Technology needs to start from rural India, more than 250 million potential users and base connected to rest of the India(origin of roots). Government schemes, NGOs, mobile apps or other initiatives are still not able to connect with the rural masses. Different regions have different requirements, language and cultural barriers. With help of technology/digital platforms users need to be engaged, educated and encourage to adopt the technology. It is only possible by providing them what is necessary for them,bring the exposure to their doorsteps and usher them in the digital age.

X Topic Abstract

The Government's push for a cashless economy, duly enumerated in the recently presented Union Budget 2017-18, will encourage financial institutions and SMEs to go digital. For instance, with SMEs engaging in cashless transactions following the demonetization move in November 2016, banks have been asked to launch 1 million POS terminals by March and 2 million AADHAAR based terminals by September. Online transactions will help create digital footprints of SMEs, which in turn will create insightful data for banks and lending companies. This data can be leveraged by financial institutions to understand SMEs better and to create tailor-made financial products.
