As banks and non-bank financial institutions explore new, innovative methods with which to deliver financial services, digital lending has emerged as an opportunity for those organizations to loan money faster and more efficiently. Digital lending is essentially the use of digital platforms to handle the loan process online, from application through to disbursement of money. Driven by advances in technology and government initiatives, the digital loan sector is growing: between 2019 and 2025, the market is expected to reach $11.6 billion, growing at a rate of 20.3% during that period.
However, the increased profile and sophistication of the digital lending market reflects an increased level of risk from criminals. The vulnerabilities of digital lending mean that firms must know how to detect and remediate criminal threats appropriately and ensure that they are not exploited as a way to launder money or finance terrorist activities.
