Gearing up FinTech for wider financial inclusion

Three winners of the HBL Innovation Challenge were LFD Default Prediction Algorithm; a team of young scientists who work on big data solutions, Faceoff; a team of four software engineers with expertise in artificial intelligence and Wukla/Paksign; an online portal founded by three lawyers who provide digital legal services. FDC’s winner for 2017 was Credit Fix; a firm that has an app which assesses the credit worthiness of a customer through behaviour profiling and informal financial data, such as their household income, expenditure flows and savings. The app is linked with a mobile wallet where customers can file for a loan and conduct other transactions (eliminating the need of physically going to the bank). The government is targeting universal financial access for at least 50% of adults by 2020 via its National Financial Inclusion Strategy.

Is the recession over?


Hey, look at that idiot right above me blaming conservatives. We have been telling them for months and months that a mega-depression is coming. We told them they were a big fail. We told them they were like locusts...destroying and then pointing the finger.
