The Future of Alternative Lending at Five Degrees

Over the last several years, it's become more difficult for SME companies to obtain a bank loan. As a result, alternative lending has become a far more appealing and realistic option for middle-market businesses – posing a significant threat to incumbent banks. 


What is the future of alternative lending, and which trends can we expect?


Alternative lending has increased in popularity, and numerous nonbanks and alternative lending institutions have entered this industry. With the help of new technologies, data analysis platforms, and specialized algorithms, alternative lending services are pushing traditional financial institutions to digitize their lending options.


Join us during our upcoming meetup, and on Thursday, 27th of October, °neo by Five Degrees will host an interactive meetup. We've invited two industry experts, Anne Hakvoort and Ronald Kleverlaan, to discuss the future of alternative lending and answer key questions.


What are we discussing within the alternative lending market?


  • Consolidation
  • M&A
  • Internationalization in the lending market
  • Opportunities and challenges from a jurisdictional, strategic, and business approach
