This year’s Money20/20 is poised to be bigger and better than ever, with celebrity appearances from Sir Richard Branson and Shaquille O’Neil. But the people we’ll be most starstruck to see are the fintech innovators in lending and digital identity. If you’ll be there, come say hello at booth #1456. In the meantime, here are just a few of the Money20/20 sessions we’ll be waiting on the edge of our seats for:

Identity Around the World

Sunday, October 21st at 10:20 am

From payments to commerce to government services, digital identity verification is simultaneously becoming more and more crucial to maintaining order, and increasingly complex to enforce and implement. A panel of industry leaders will share case studies from around the world on successful ways to increase security without increasing friction, including:

  • Filip Verley, Product Manager for Identity at AirBnB
  • Gonzalo Diaz Solá, Head of Electronic & Digital Banking at ICBC Argentina
  • Steve Pannifer, Chief Operating Officer at Consult Hyperion
  • Andrew Nash, VP of Consumer Identity at Capital One
  • Brett McDowell, Executive Director of FIDO Alliance
  • Alfy Louis, Management Consultant at ForgeRock
  • Joni Brennan, President of the Digital ID & Authentication Council of Canada


Hear from Kevin King, Director of Product Marketing at ID Analytics, on successful strategies for deciding when to prioritize security over convenience, and vice versa.


Machine Learning & Beyond

Monday, October 22nd at 8:30 am

Fintech is living up to its name, as we see technology transforming every corner of finance, not least in cybersecurity and fraud. In this session, Oak HC/FT general partner Tricia Kemp and Feedzai founder and CEO Nuno Sebastião will examine how key trends like machine learning and artificial intelligence are automating and revolutionizing the fight against fraud.

Solving America’s Financial Health Crisis

Monday, October 22nd at 10:10 am

More than half of American consumers are considered “financially unhealthy.” Yet, the age-old wisdom that a rising tide lifts all boats rings just as true here: healthy upward mobility benefits cities, communities, and corporations as much as it does the average citizen. LendingClub CEO Scott Sanborn and Center for Financial Services Innovation President & CEO Jennifer Tescher will take a candid look at how corporate America can do more to encourage financial health, both for their employees and for their customers.

Guns, Drugs, & Heels

Monday, October 22nd at 10:20 am

Kabbage president and co-founder Kathryn Petralia’s session promises to be especially  thought-provoking and disruptive. She asserts that waves of social change, such as the national gun control debate or legalization of marijuana, hold valuable and pertinent lessons for the fintech ecosystem. Petralia will share how fintech policy and technology has been impacted by — and stands to learn more from — societal revolution.

Prime (and Non-Prime) Time for Online Lending

Tuesday, October 23rd at 9:00 am

About two-thirds of Americans either have a credit score below 700, or no score at all. Without alternative lending options, they are left at the mercy of nonprime (formerly known as subprime) lenders and predatory interest rates. But not all hope is lost. At Money20/20, moderated by Bloomberg finance reporter Jenny Surane, Prosper CEO David Kimball and Elevate CEO Ken Rees will dive into the latest innovations in online and marketplace lending to responsibly serve more consumers.

Disrupting Credit Scoring: The Future is Mobile

Tuesday, October 23rd at 11:30 am

The future of data is in the consumer’s hands. New technologies are helping lenders move from static, often stale databases to dynamic, on-demand data models. More importantly, this mobile and social data enhancing credit risk assessment for thin- and no-file customers is consent-based and user-permissioned. Evan Chrapko, founder and CEO of Trust Science, will give some real life examples of these scoring models in action.

From Underbanked to Understood

Wednesday, October 24th at 9:35 am

Last but not least, Urjanet’s very own founder and CEO Sanjoy Malik will be at the Avant-Garde, Expo Hall Level 2, to share how emerging solutions are enabling access to authoritative data at scale and helping lenders gain deeper visibility into the unbanked and underbanked. Not only does this data have the power for financial institutions to unlock up to $380 billion in new revenue, but it can help nearly 50 million Americans go from underbanked to understood.

Urjanet at Money20/20

Urjanet will also be demonstrating our new platform capabilities live at Money20/20 — find us at booth #1456. Read more about how our global alternative data access channel powers credit risk decisioning and identity verification here, or contact us to set up a time to meet at the event.
