Innovation In Auto Finance – The Next Horizon
Thursday, June 23 8:45am – 9:45am

As the world turns a corner on the COVID-19 pandemic, economic woes and supply chain constraints persist; players in the auto finance ecosystem are making tactical bets for a future that may look very different than the past. This new horizon of digital innovation could reshape traditional business models, both within auto lending but also across auto retailing more broadly. This presentation will provide insights on the future of innovation in auto finance by exploring perspectives from consumers, profiling key global examples, and summarizing trends from OEMs, lenders, dealers, and services providers.

Alternative Data Roundtable Speakers
Friday, June 24 9:15am – 10:00am

We live in a data-driven world, and businesses worldwide are using data to make decisions. But too much data can make it difficult to manage and just create too which can be detrimental to performance, profitability, and security. 

Another thing we can’t ignore is the consumers willingness to deal with companies using alternative data.  Just because we build it doesn’t mean they’ll come. 

How do you focus on the right data to help you make better decisions in your business? And how do you get consumers to agree to use it? 

We’re proud to host leaders from Neo, Provenir and Trust Science to discuss how alternative data is helping businesses in the different stages of lending and what trends and best practices are driving the industry now.

Digital Marketplaces Roundtable Speakers
Friday, June 24 1:00pm – 2:00pm

We have seen tremendous change in technology inside the asset and auto finance arenas the past 5-10 years.  Technology continues to push new efficiencies and automations that allow financial institutions to lend faster, more effectively and gain previously unattainable scalability needed to grow successfully.   

Traditional portals continue to be the staple of the industry, but we now see the emergence of Digital Marketplaces that are allowing FI’s to drive growth and capture opportunities that they simply couldn’t in past years.  

Why? The technology is enabling them to do so quickly and within budget.  

In the Digital Marketplace round table we will be diving deeper into how and why lenders have begun to drive new business with technology.   

Inovatec is proud to host a discussion with leaders from three of our partners at AFG, Autocorp, and Dabadu, three of these emerging marketplaces.
