Use of Financial Technology Solutions to Expand Access to Affordable Housing

Track 3: Financing and Affordable Housing

A fast-evolving healthy financial ecosystem can lead to a new generation of financial intermediaries that harness technology’s power, employ new business models, adopt innovative and leaner customer acquisition and credit assessment processes.

These developments within the broader financial inclusion space warrant the case for looking for additional distribution channels that hold the potential of furthering the cause of safe, secure, and affordable housing among low-income households.

The session will discuss partnerships in this space and highlight how financial technology solutions increase access to housing finance among low-income families and help improve housing conditions. Focal points for panel discussion could be:

  • Role of technology in reducing the cost of supply of housing
  • Improved risk prediction and monitoring mechanisms
  • Expanding access to capital markets
