  • The Race to Digital: Three Trends Driving Digital Lending and Asset Management Recorded: Sep 25 2018 60 mins
    Jim Lundy, Founder, CEO and Lead Analyst, Aragon Research, Rahim Kaba, Director of Global E-Signature , OneSpan,
    Today, documents are vital to revenue particularly in financial services, where a document tied to a financial instrument (e.g., mortgage, automobile loan, equipment lease) is recognized as an asset. Analog processes can slow down an enterprise and put them at a competitive disadvantage. The good news is that the financial services industry is shifting from paper files to digital assets for their contract-intensive lending applications. Join Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst at Aragon Research and Rahim Kaba, Director of Global Product Marketing at OneSpan to learn how to manage and protect assets for loans, leasing, and mortgages – from e-signature all the way through to vaulting and securitization. Key topics to be covered:

    · The impact of digital on B2B/B2C lending and mortgage

    · Adopting a fully digital, end-to-end asset management process – pre- and post-signature

    · Best practices for managing and protecting digital assets in a vault

    · Security, legal and compliance considerations

    · The future: impact of blockchain and smart contracts on digital lending
  • 2017 Digital Lending Fraud Report Recorded: Dec 6 2017 46 mins
    Al Pascual, Senior VP and Research Director
    The explosive adoption of the digital channels is changing the nature of lending. Consumers are coming to expect the kind of convenience and speed that a digital experience can deliver and lenders are increasingly looking to oblige. While many of the benefits to consumers of digital lending are clear, there are some complications related to fraud that arise when lending goes digital. In order to take advantage of these limitations and vulnerabilities, today’s fraudsters rely on a diversified playbook of schemes and techniques to commit loan fraud in digital channels, and they are becoming increasingly successful.

    This upcoming webinar will be moderated by Lending Times and sponsored by Mitek, and features guest speaker Al Pascual, Senior Vice President and Research Director at Javelin Strategy & Research. Attend this webinar and be one of the first recipients of the 2017 Digital Lending Fraud Report from Javelin, exploring how issues in digital lending have unfolded and the steps that lenders must take to effectively resist the growing epidemic of digital lending fraud.

    Key takeaways:
     Address factors in today's lending environment
    that have created a favorable environment for fraudsters.
     How different types of loans are being affected by fraud in digital channels.
     Techniques used by fraudsters to commit digital lending fraud, including synthetic
    identities, volumetric attacks, and device spoofing.
     Next steps lenders can take to optimize their lending fraud mitigation process.

    In the sub-prime lending market, speed-to-close determines market share. Join us to learn how an end-to-end digital process with e-signatures transformed OneMain’s lending business – positioning the lender as the largest personal loan company in the U.S. Today,99% of OneMain’s loans are e-signed, enabling them to be closed and funded significantly faster than on paper.

    In this 60-minute presentation, you’ll learn how the company took a phased approach and implemented e-signatures in the call center and online channels, then expanded to the branch network. This year, OneMain will complete its e-signature roll-out to 1,700 branches, where the majority of its loans are transacted.

    Our speakers will share firsthand insights and advice on topics like:

    · Top e-signature requirements, such as security, deployment, scalability
    · Best practices for preparing a national roll-out – including working with regulators on a state-by-state basis
    · Designing optimal workflows for remote vs. in-branch transactions
    · Preparing the branch network for e-signature
