Webinar – The Race to Digital: Three Trends Driving Digital Lending and Asset Management

What? Online webinar.

When? September 25th, 2 pm EST.

Where? Online: register here.

Today, documents are vital to revenue particularly in financial services, where a document tied to a financial instrument (e.g., mortgage, automobile loan, equipment lease) is recognized as an asset. Analog processes can slow down an enterprise and put them at a competitive disadvantage. The good news is that the financial services industry is shifting from paper files to digital assets for their contract-intensive lending applications. Join Jim Lundy, CEO and Lead Analyst at Aragon Research and Rahim Kaba, Director of Global Product Marketing at OneSpan to learn how to manage and protect assets for loans, leasing and mortgages – from e-signature all the way through to vaulting and securitization.

Key topics to be covered:

  • The impact of digital on B2B/B2C lending and mortgage
  • Adopting a fully digital, end-to-end asset management process – pre- and post-signature
  • Best practices for managing and protecting digital assets in a vault
  • Security, legal and compliance considerations
  • The future: impact of blockchain and smart contracts on digital lending

Webinar registrants will receive a complimentary copy of Aragon’s latest research note on digital asset management.
