Investing in real estate has been around for centuries but it is only in the past few years that it has become possible to do this remotely and at scale.

I have said many times that regulators have a difficult job. They are not built for the fast changing world in which we live and they often struggle to deal with innovation, particularly in finance. Our next guest on the Lend Academy Podcast has been at the front lines of this struggle. Dan Quan arrived […] The post Podcast 170: Dan Quan, Formerly With the CFPB appeared first on Lend Academy.

We have come a long way in the past decade when it comes to innovation in financial services. But how is fintech truly improving the financial health of the average American? Not as much as it should be. Changing this situation is the mission of our next guest on the Lend Academy Podcast.

When it comes to the fix ‘n’ flip real estate lending space it is still very much a cottage industry with many small players in local areas providing loans to their network. There have been few national players, including banks, that have really focused deeply on this segment.

One of the largest verticals in all of lending is equipment finance. There is $1.1 trillion worth of equipment financed each year and yet only a tiny fraction of this number is financed in an all digital process.

When it comes to applying for a loan, whether it be a mortgage, personal loan or auto loan there is pretty much an expectation that it will be a stressful experience.

It is not news that consumers continue to take on more debt. Credit cards, student loans, personal loans, auto loans – total balances for most consumer loan categories are growing. What is somewhat lacking is advice on when more debt is actually too much debt.

I have said many times that the ultimate promise of fintech is to bring the three billion financially underserved people in the world into the financial system. There is probably no organization on earth that has done more to promote financial inclusion over the last 50 years than Accion.

Financing higher education in this country is broken. We are at well over $1 trillion in student loan debt today and with defaults on the rise a sizable chunk of this amount will never be paid back. Many people are choosing higher education programs today without analyzing the financial consequences of their decision.

It is curious to me that 56% of the adults in this country are classified as subprime. Yet, most lenders are focused on prime or near prime consumers. Improving the financial health of the subprime population is clearly a bigger problem but also one that can potentially have a bigger reward.

For most of the last century small business lending was primarily a local endeavor. Entrepreneurs would go to their local bank to apply for a loan. The bank manager or loan officer would, of course, gather the financials of the business but they also knew the entrepreneur personally, knew how their business was going and […] The post Podcast 161: Everett Sands of Lendistry appeared first on Lend Academy.

It is curious to me that in 2018 banks are still processing transactions in batches. The ACH system, created in the 1970s, is still the primary way that money is moved around between banks and these transactions are processed in daily batches. Visa Direct wants to replace that antiquated system. Built on the Visa rails […] The post Podcast 160: Cecilia Frew of Visa Direct appeared first on Lend Academy.

I love creative approaches to helping the unbanked and underserved consumer. The promise of fintech is not just to bring cheaper, faster and better products for the already well-served consumer, it is to expand access to financial services for populations that have been outside the traditional system.

One of the great things about the near prime space in online lending is that there are fewer competitors operating there. The reason is simply that it is harder to make work. There are challenges with data, pricing loans and customer acquisition costs just to name a few.
