13:10 Panel discussion - Emerging opportunities for non-bank lenders
Growth of non-bank lenders covering the commercial and regulatory aspects. The session will also discuss the opportunities for non-bank lenders across different industries and lending structures (eg unitranche, TLBs etc). Use the examples of Prospa and Afterpay to highlight the growth potential and challenges associated with innovation in the industry. The session could also look ahead to assess the impact of lower interest rates and RBA’s lending relaxations on non-bank lending.
14:00 Panel Discussion - Case Study on Axsesstoday
Will help illustrate the risks of growing too fast with weak under writing standards. Is there a moral hazard for excessive growth i.e. misprice to get higher volumes. The session could possibly also examine how well capitalized these platforms are. Also, maybe extrapolate to other cases like Silver Chef and Eclipx which are selling their businesses to survive.
