Business lending: data and bias in decision making

FCI is a proud supporter of our member, Trade Ledger, and their event.

What stops business lenders from making the right decisions?
Is there bias – in bankers' minds or in the decision algorithms they use?

Join Martin McCann, Co-founder and CEO of multi-award winning company Trade Ledger, as he talks with Tobias Baer, an independent senior advisor to financial institutions and fintechs and a scholar cooperating with the University of Cambridge, 21 July at 10 am BST.

 By the end of this discussion, you’ll walk away with a clear understanding of:

  • What types of data are most useful when making lending decisions
  • The £5.4 trillion SME lending missed opportunity and how data-driven lending can overcome it
  • What algorithmic bias is and how to avoid it
  • What the business lender of the future will look like
