There are 1.7 billion unbanked adults globally and more than half of them reside in Asia Pacific. They have little to no access to formal financial services and traditional credit products. Alternative data, in some markets the only type of data available, provide an opportunity for lenders and financial institutions to access an untapped or under-served segment of consumers who have no or thin credit files.
Open Banking is a global movement that has made its way into Asia Pacific. Many of the major economies in the region have taken steps toward Open Banking but the approaches differ hence their degree of readiness and complexity. What is true, is that this will change the game for banks as they respond to the opportunities and challenges presented by Open Banking, which will impact the whole digital banking ecosystem – challenges of security and privacy whilst delighting customers and fast-tracking their digital transformation journey.
The ability to find, manage and deliver the right data in real-time is now the de facto assumption for modern analytics success. To be more than just future ready, rather to be the one who disrupts and not be disrupted, businesses need ‘Autonomous Analytics’ – simply put, taking us beyond ‘what happened’ and seamlessly answer ‘why something happened’, and ‘predict what could happen next.’ Organisations that take on this new paradigm will run their industries.
Data is in everything we do, and has grown immensely in terms of size, type and complexity. There is extensive non-traditional data emerging creating the era of Open Data – and the ability to unlock marketable or income-generating insights from it presents a tremendous opportunity. The challenge is how to extract, qualify and process the data to turn this opportunity into real value for businesses and ultimately the consumer.
While businesses are striving to drive and unlock the benefits from increasingly digital lifestyles, online identity theft, which is one of the most common form of online fraud, is increasingly becoming a major problem, with cyber-criminals gaining access to consumer accounts and making fraudulent transactions, resulting in billions of dollars in financial losses each year. How do businesses build consumer trust and confidence in an increasingly digital world, whilst delivering superior experiences that their customers expect?
The scale, diversity and pace of change in Asia Pacific has brought about pressing economic and environmental issues that requires localised solutions for the respective markets. Data science and analytics is one of the key driving forces in the creation of such solutions. The exponential amount of data generated in the region through Asia Pacific’s rapidly growing internet penetration and mobile usage rates serves as a good basis to build financial identities for Asia’s unbanked. This also translates into harnessing various initiatives in the region’s tech stack and the vibrant data economy to look at opportunities for boosting financial inclusion and access.
Of equal importance is the creation and growth of the social innovation ecosystem that includes start-ups, fintech providers, related businesses and academic institutions in the region to seed and develop Asia Pacific-wide solutions. Experian X Labs was created with this specific purpose and looks to be an agent of responsible innovation, drawing from its expertise around financial inclusion, digital payments and consumer enablement through advanced data analytics, research and development.
