TODAY, customers expect more from their banks – who are slow to deliver new products, services, and experiences as a result of their legacy systems and archaic processes.

However, those that truly want to meet and exceed expectations (and snatch up a bigger share of the market), there are a few lessons they can learn from fintechs.

By partnering with fintechs, banks would have access to new services that help deliver better offerings to customers, at cheaper rates.

At the Wild Digital conference on Wednesday, panelists at a discussion observed that of all the industries, those dealing with money-based investments have been the least changed by technology.

The panel featured Richard Eldridge, Co-founder and CEO of Lenddo EFL; Ashley Koh, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Send, Matchmove; Michele Ferrario, Co-Founder and CEO of StashAway; and Gan Pooi Chan (PC), Country Director GoBear.

Karangkraf | Beri peluang rakyat akses perkhidmatan kewangan

AGENSI pelaporan kredit terbesar Malaysia, CTOS Data Systems Sdn Bhd (CTOS), menjalin kerjasama dengan LenddoEFL bagi memperluaskan perangkuman kewangan pengguna Malaysia yang kurang atau tidak mempunyai sejarah kredit melalui ‘CTOS Non-Traditional Data Score’.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Kumpulan CTOS Holdings Sdn Bhd, Dennis Martin berkata, walaupun markah kredit ramalan tentang tingkah laku pembayaran telah meningkat tahun demi tahun, namun sekumpulan besar peminjam yang berpotensi baik ketika ini dinafikan akses kepada kredit disebabkan kurangnya sejarah kredit.

“Disebabkan pemberian pinjaman pengguna lazimnya bergantung kepada skor kredit, individu ini mendapati diri mereka terpinggir daripada ekosistem kredit dan juga sukar menambah baik markah kredit mereka.

“Dengan memanfaatkan sepenuhnya data tingkah laku dan data digital yang diizinkan penggunaannya oleh pengguna, CTOS dan  LenddoEFL akan melancarkan platform keputusan kredit universal yang mampu menaksir kebolehpercayaan kredit mana-mana rakyat Malaysia, baik yang ada sejarah kredit mahupun kurang sejarah kredit,” katanya dalam kenyataan media.
