BSG Financial Group Webinar to Instruct Community Financial Institutions How to Update Lending Processes to Profitably

Offer Small Business and Consumer Loans Picture Session to Introduce Digital Lending Strategy that Allows Financial Institutions to Improve the Customer Lending Experience and Effectively Compete with Non-Bank Lenders

LOUISVILLE, KY (May 16, 2018) - BSG Financial Group, a provider of revenue-enhancing programs and compliance solutions for financial institutions nationwide, announced today it will host a webinar for financial institutions entitled, "From Dinosaur to Digital: Learn the Strategy to Grow Profitable Small Business and Consumer Loans." The free webinar—which is part of an ongoing educational series that the company provides for its clients and potential customers—will teach community financial institutions how to update and automate their lending processes using digital technology in order to grow small business and consumer loans. The webinar will be held on Thursday, May 24 at 11 am EST. BSG Financial Group is hosting this webinar to help community financial institutions recapture the staggering number of small business and consumer loans lost primarily to online lenders. According to FDIC data, over half of all business loans are less than $100,000, but in the last 10 years, market share for community FIs in this key small business segment has plummeted from over 50% to a mere 18%. Similarly, consumer loans under $35,000 represent a $1.4 trillion market, but according to TransUnion, online lenders now exceed all financial institutions in serving this segment. The webinar instructs community financial institutions how to implement digital technology that is targeted specifically to these important loan segments in order to generate new loans among existing customers as well as acquire new loans and deposit accounts. “This technology is not an LOS nor a ‘one-size-fits-all’ digital solution intended to serve the institution’s full breadth of lending capabilities,” said Jeffrey Harper, president of BSG Financial Group. Instead, the solution is tailored specifically to small business and consumer loans, which lend themselves to a fully automated origination, underwriting, approval and monitoring process. “It is a new way of thinking about lending and a very effective way to reach this valuable market, which has already been a boon to online lenders.” It is estimated that by 2025, digital lending will represent a $30 billion opportunity as more customers seeks the speed of service, efficiency and customer experience it offers. The webinar presenter is lending and technology expert Robert C. Giltner, Chairman of R.C. Giltner Services, Inc., a provider of digital lending solutions for community institutions. In the 60-minute webinar, Giltner will demonstrate how FIs can adopt digital technology to target and grow both small business and consumer loan and deposit relationships by automating loan processes, including: - Sound underwriting based on the financial institution’s controls and risk tolerance -The entire application process for delivery of loan offers in one minute, and consummation of loans with e-sign within five minutes—on a smart device or computer (in-branch or out) - Credit monitoring, Risk rating and loan management -Tracking & Performance Reporting Who: BSG Financial Group in conjunction with R.C.
