Commercial credit risk

SME customers want fast onboarding, digital lending decisions and 24/7 services. Commercial lenders need to implement and improve digital onboarding journeys to meet this need and grow. However, with rising delinquencies there is also a need to balance risk. New regulations and data-sharing requirements drive greater choices for SMEs in commercial lending, increasing competition. The current business landscape is volatile. Attracting quality customers is essential to mitigate risk and increase revenue. Assessing affordability is key to managing risk while offering fair, responsible lending. The cost of SME lending can be high. Automation and better risk decisions present a huge opportunity to lower costs and grow your portfolio. But neither need be a trade-off. Both are possible with onboarding from Experian.
