Banking on Tech: Reaching the Real India
Despite the evident strides in digitizing financial services and making it accessible and affordable for all, over 40% of India's population is still unbanked or underbanked. Innovations such as UPIs and Aadhar codes are slowly making physical bank accounts irrelevant and bringing banking closer to the people that have long been marginalized. How can the financial inclusion gap be really addressed & made financially viable? And what risks exist today? This session examines the journey of finance from India to the heart of Bharat with a close look at the roles infrastructure, regulations, and personalized data must play to drive nationwide financial inclusion.

Alternative Lending: Credit to those who need it the most!
Alternative lending has long been a saving grace for those with poor credit scores or nonexistent credit scores. In this session, the panel will discuss what it means to be a "future prime" (i.e. someone who could be creditworthy in the near future) and how to unlock future primes through alternate data sets and creating new vertical segments from student loans and SME loans. Which segments are showing better potential for loan repayment and lower fraud rates? Which ones will scale? Will there be players in vertical lending? Will banks continue to wait and watch or will they start increasingly partnering in lending to some of these segments?
