Unsecured Lending: New Opportunities for Credit Issuers … and Fraudsters

Unsecured consumer lending is gaining momentum, and lenders are challenged with combating fraud.

Boston, January 15, 2019 – Alternative lenders in the U.S. are increasingly joined by traditional financial institution lenders looking to find new retail banking revenue streams. While unsecured personal lending represents new opportunity for financial services providers, it also comes with heightened risk. The competitive environment is driving fast loan approval and often same-day or next-day funding, which underscores the importance of quick and effective fraud detection capabilities.

It is informed by interviews with 24 U.S. credit and fraud risk executives from August to December 2018, as well as additional Q4 2018 interviews with fraud and credit risk mitigation vendors serving the unsecured lending space.
