Annual Member Meeting

Postponed to Q1 2021

Due to large number of travel restrictions implemented in response to COVID-19, we’ve received several cancellations from key attendees. Therefore, we will be postponing the AMM until Q1 2021.  We are planning on keeping the event in New Orleans at the Hyatt Centric French Quarter.  The SBFE team is working internally to determine the dates.  We will keep you posted.

The Small Business Financial Exchange’s 19th Annual Member Meeting will be held April 20 to April 22, 2020 at the Hyatt Centric French Quarter. This event will provide attendees a forward look from top industry experts in the small business lending space.

Attendance is a free benefit of membership.  If you are a current SBFE member or a prospective member, contact to learn how you too can join the event.

EVENT highlights 

A Look into the Future:

Dr. Cristian deRitis, Senior Director, Consumer Credit Analytics at Moody’s Analytics, will deliver a forward-looking view of the economic landscape and its impact on small business lending.

SBFE and Aite Group have teamed up for a second year to conduct research into fraud vectors effecting small business lenders. The findings prove that fraud in the small business lending space has only continued to grow and remains a major concern. A panel of lenders led by David O’Connell, senior analyst with Aite Group, will explore multiple lending fraud types, incident rates, trends and much more.

Through an interactive panel discussion led by Lakshmi Narain Chandrasekaran, Vice President, Capital One and SBFE LLC Board President, experts from our Certified Vendors will explore the benefits and risks associated with machine learning and artificial intelligence in small business lending.

During interactive sessions, SBFE Certified Vendors; Dun&Bradstreet, Equifax, Experian, and LexisNexis Risk Solutions, will present case studies, share best practices and insights derived from their SBFE Data™ enhanced services.
