Credit Analytics Lifecycle in the Age of AI and Alternative Data

5th Dec 2019 | Cairo, Egypt

Why attend

To succeed in today’s hyper competitive environment for lending, financial institutions must reinvent themselves with more agile and holistic approaches around their core businesses.

Industry statistics point to diminishing returns, and as the global economy shows signs of slowing down, surviving downturns should be on top of mind for bankers everywhere. Having an effective risk management and modeling ecosystem has evolved from being regulatory driven to an artificial Intelligence and data-based exercise due to technological advances, ever-changing customer expectation and dynamic market conditions.

As a strategic advisor and technological partner of the most important financial institutions, SAS has always played a proactive role in fostering innovation and transformation of processes and systems, from risk analytics to automated credit life cycle management, customer centricity, regulatory compliance or financial crimes. You are cordially invited to join us at our event, Credit Lifecycle Management, to see the applications of alternative data and AI/ML in risk modeling. This half day event followed by lunch, will feature SAS and industry experts sharing their thoughts and experiences around the leading practices and discuss how critical decisions can be made quicker and intelligently, customers are retained & grown at unprecedented levels.

We look forward to seeing you on the 5th of December at JW Marriott Hotel, Cairo, Egypt
