Atlanta, GA — September 10, 2014 The Small Business Finance Institute (SBFI) announces that its Managing Director, Charles Green, will be among the national finance leaders to address the planned AltLend: Innovative Finance for Small Business Conference in Las Vegas, September 23-24.
Technology has enabled investors to employ alternative data sources and innovate financial underwriting to expedite funding approval and distribute significant sums of capital. Major questions, however, still remain. How will traditional banks respond? Is customer adaptation sustainable? Can current models and products be benchmarked and stress-tested? Where will the next disruption come from—new data sets? Industry alliances? Regulation?
AltLend will focus exclusively on new trends emerging in the small business finance ecosystem and assemble together bankers, investors, and innovative lenders to discuss the future of this sector.
The conference will also include speakers from participating companies Lendio, Fundation, SmartBiz, Merchant Cash & Capital, Lending Club, Dealstruck, Funding Circle, Kabbage, Creditera, Biz2Credit, IOUCentral, CAN Capital and more. In addition, representatives from the Federal Reserve Bank and the U.S. Small Business Administration will address the conference.
For more information about the conference, go to Financial Research Associates.

He recently published “Banker’s Guide to New Small Business Finance,” (2014, John Wiley & Sons) that provides insight into the innovative financing sector.
