  • Which sectors of alt lending have had the most dramatic change (growth and/or decline) across P2P, SMB, Real Estate, other
  • The Customer:  Are alternative lenders fundamentally using new technology and data to transform how service is delivered to the customer, or, are they just originating loans differently.  Which lenders and sectors have fundamentally transformed the customer experience?  Do you think this innovation in customer experience is here to stay/what will it take for it to become mainstream?
  • Economy:  What is the broader impact of Alt Lending on the economy – is it opening up access to funding to more people, other impact?
  • Traditional FI/Banks:   Partnerships between fin tech & banks has been the big buzz word of 2016.  Who is doing this right and do any of them really have traction or is this just about PR?
