Today’s guest is Mark London, Chief Risk Officer for Abound, formerly known as Fintern – a startup specializing in data-driven approaches to small consumer loans. In conversation with Emerj CEO and Head of Research Daniel Faggella, Mark talks about the differences in small and large consumer loans from a data perspective and how lenders can decrease their risk without treating credit scores as the end-all-be-all. And later, they discuss new business opportunities coming from the democratization of data and how long it will take before legacy financial institutions can truly reap the benefits.
