Brexit poker game to be played out from a position of economic weakness
Wednesday, 12 July 2017
“The UK has seen more disappointing data which included the Purchasing Manager Indices as well as the trade deficit and Industrial Production in May. These come on the heels of very weak Retail Sales, where annual growth is now a paltry 0.6%, whereas it was running consistently over 3% for most of the last three years. Anecdotal evidence is also building negatively, with various surveys pointing to Brexit fears as a reason for subdued investment. One number that has been growing strongly is unsecured Consumer Credit, something which the Bank of England is already trying to subdue because it looks unsustainable. Consumers are spending to the max, with the Savings Ratio reaching a new historical low of 1.7% in March (this data series in its current form goes back to 1963). This while they are being squeezed between falling real wages and rising prices.

Lobby group finds financial sector could add £43 billion to the UK economy by 2025
Friday, 07 July 2017
Pegasystems Director and Industry Principal of Financial Services Graham Lloyd comments on the findings:  “The obvious question posed by reports like this is, “what does it mean in practice?”. Few will argue with the thrust of its messages, but only a small proportion will know what they should actually do in practice. The challenge is complicated by the likelihood that most institutions believe they are already delivering these things – banks see themselves as customer-centric, regulators as firm but fair.

The role of AI in lending and leasing
Friday, 07 July 2017
At the annual Linedata Exchange Europe conference in London, Bertrand Cocagne, Head of Product at Linedata Lending & Leasing, outlined the obstacles AI needs to overcome to be a real game changer in lending and leasing:   “Artificial Intelligence (AI) is by no means a new buzz word and we’re already seeing examples of it being used to significantly increase efficiencies around new business processes in lending and leasing. In the last ten years we’ve seen a major step forward. In small ticket and auto finance some lenders are using automated credit scoring to underwrite almost a 100% of deals. The trust however is not there yet across all segments of asset finance, and in the more complex and bigger ticket credit cases AI is no more than a guide helping humans validate decisions.
