Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Today, in the US, the majority of lenders use an approach to making credit decisions that was developed 50 years ago and uses very few data points to determine creditworthiness. As a result, responsible people who have incomplete or incorrect credit files have a hard time gettting access to credit. Douglas Merrill, CEO of ZestFinance and Former CIO of Google, will discuss how innovations in technology and big data are enabling us to more accurately determine risk and expand credit availability to individuals in the U.S. and beyond.
