Digital Credit: Managing Risks and Achieving Scale


One of the key drivers of financial inclusion is access to finance. Digital platforms have been used as a channel to drive access. In the recent past, the emergence of innovative financial products like digital credit has allowed a significant number of people in emerging markets access credit. On account of ease of access and quick turnaround, the uptake of digital credit has been significantly on the rise. However, in mature markets, concerns, such as lack of product differentiation and poor portfolio quality leads to a re-think on how best to design and deliver digital credit. The course on digital credit covers the nuances of designing and delivering digital credit to achieve scale while managing the risks associated with it. We have developed this course based on our cutting edge operational insights collected from our experience working with financial institutions implementing digital credit in emerging economies.
