Market Pulse: Accelerating Access to Credit

Please complete the form below to view the webinar.

COVID-19 accelerated a number of economic trends, but its biggest impact may be the acceleration of financial inequality. The pandemic took a disproportionate toll on low-income Americans and people of color, including Blacks, Hispanics, millennials and mothers. It must be a priority to build a more inclusive financial system.
 
One of the biggest challenges? It is addressing “credit invisible” or those without credit history. Roughly one in ten American adults struggle to access credit because they’ve never accessed it before. A disproportionate share of these 26 million Americans are Black or Hispanic. Furthermore, more than 12.5 million live in areas deemed “credit insecure” and lack formal credit opportunities. These individuals may rely on high-cost alternatives like check cashing services or pawn shop loans, which can worsen their economic situation.
 
In this webinar, our experts discuss how to help these consumers access mainstream financial services. Our panel also discusses the role of alternative data - information not found in traditional credit reports - in building a more inclusive financial system.

Presenters:
Sid Singh, President of USIS, Equifax
Chris Wheat, Co-President, JPMorgan Chase Institute
Peter Maynard, SVP of Data & Analytics, Equifax
Kahlil Byrd, Founder and CEO, Invest America

Webinar broadcast date: 6/24/2021
