Panel

Alternative SME Lending - Is there still a role for intermediaries and what might that look like?

AltFi Australasia Summit 2018 - 16th April 2018

  • This panel, the last of the day, looked at how fintech intermediaries fit in an industry that’s getting tougher and heading towards consolidation.

  • Peter White emphasised the role of brokers as a central intermediary, noting that they are driven by the National Consumer Credit Code. They don’t give advice they give assistance by law.

  • Michael Burke noted that things are getting tougher but there is still a major role for intermediaries, but margins and revenues aren’t as high as many hoped.
