    Rutger Responds: Money20/20 USA | 7 Key Take-aways & How to Prepare Your Business The experience of attending Money2020 for the first time was overwhelming in the best way – so many compelling sessions to attend….so little time to attend them all!

  • Rutger Responds: Insights from Finovate Fall 2019

    Rutger Responds: Insights from Finovate Fall 2019 I spent three exciting days at Finovate Fall 2019 in New York last week witnessing the latest and greatest from over 70 fintechs.

    Changing Expectations in Consumer Lending

    The aftermath of the 2008-2009 financial crisis led to a dramatic reduction in consumer loans. Defaults and deleveraging by consumers, coupled with stricter underwriting criteria from banks, resulted in a dramatically different post-crisis lending landscape. In the decade since, consumers have regained their confidence, unemployment has decreased, and the economy has continued to grow. Total outstanding household debt has risen back to the pre-crisis levels. Balance sheets, of course, aren’t the only thing that has changed in the consumer-lending landscape since the crisis.
