The financial crisis brought about huge losses to a large number of financial institutions and exposed many of the internal inefficiencies leveraged to manage risk and data within and across divisions. Today, things have changed dramatically. Despite the many regulatory changes over the years, marketplace lenders have been extremely successful implementing predictive modeling and data aggregation to assess consumers’ and small businesses’ financial health.
New lending technologies allow lenders to improve customer satisfaction by creating a personalized and unique customer experience. By taking into consideration personal, transactional, application, and product-selection data from financial institutions, lenders are able to leverage this data for other opportunities such as cross-selling credit products during the loan-application process. These innovations ultimately provide borrowers with an intuitive and simplified borrowing process.
In this webinar you’ll:
* Get insight into the trends and opportunities driving change in the lending and credit risk management industries
* Explore more accurate predictive ratings models based on alternative data sets
* Discover the future of commercial retail lending and credit risk management

Omnichannel fulfillment is an area where bricks-and-mortar retailers have a unique advantage over e-tailers. They can fulfill orders and handle returns from stores to reduce shipping costs and times, and capture orders in any channel, regardless of that channel’s ability to fulfill the order. To support these new cross-channel fulfillment scenarios, retailers must overhaul their IT systems and logistics to gain a single view of inventory across the entire distribution network.
What Will You Learn?
In this webinar we highlight how consumers' heightened expectations in an omnichannel era are forcing retailers to improve and innovate fulfillment. For example, the growth of buy online pickup in store (BOPIS) responds to consumers’ demands for convenience and instant gratification. But many retailers have struggled to do omnichannel fulfillment well, so we explain what you need to be successful in terms of technology, logistics and supply chain management.

Volatile capital markets and the rapidly changing financial landscape make it important for issuers to recognise changes quickly and adjust their financing strategies accordingly.
For example, for an issuer that contemplated an IPO or is in the IPO queue, it is important to become familiar with other financing alternatives, such as venture debt or late-stage or mezzanine debt, as well as institutional equity private placements. Each of these markets is quite different. Familiarity with investor expectations and documentation requirements is essential in order to put your company in the best position to make crisp decisions. For issuers that already have their securities listed on a non-US securities exchange, which may offer limited liquidity, it may be time to consider undertaking a US IPO in order to establish a more liquid market for their securities. Already public companies considering their next capital raise also must be nimble - a PIPE transaction may be an attractive (and available) financing alternative. During this session, the speakers will discuss:
•Current market conditions;
•Financing alternatives for pre-IPO companies;
•The market for venture debt;
•The late-stage (or cross-over) private placement market;
•Options to consider on the way to an IPO;
•Financing alternatives for recently public companies; and
•PIPE transactions and other financing alternatives.
