OPPORTUNITIES

Money illustration

Remittance industry

In a general sense, remittance is primarily an overseas transaction made in the form of a payment or gift. The industry is expecting accelerated growth as it’s estimated to grow from $901.4 billion in 2022 to $1207.41 billion by 2027, a CAGR of 6.02%. One primary reason for growth in the industry is an increase in digitalization and payment automation.

Proptech lending

Proptech is a solution many fintech companies are using to combat a lack of funds. PropTech lending occurs when a FinTech company issues credit to an individual or firm with the goal of buying property. This form of lending increased from $3 million in 2014 to $20 million in 2020, making proptech a serious industry and predictively the future of mortgages.

  • Learn more about the role of fintech in real estate with proptech lending and high tech vs. old-school underwriting in proptech.
  • Use this angle: The reality of today’s world indicates that if a lender doesn’t embrace technology, they won’t be able to grow their company. However, proptech businesses value human credit decisions, and fear that leaving these important choices to technical automation that heavily impact company success could set their businesses up for failure. Focus on how Salesforce isn’t a tool used to eliminate the important element of human judgment, but is a resource used to improve data collection to enhance informed decision making and simplify the lending process for users.

Credit unions

As the world continues to open back up, credit unions are expecting continued loan growth. Despite inflationary pressures, credit union loan portfolios are expected to return to historic growth rates in 2022 with Credit Union National Association (CUNA) economists predicting a 9% increase in total loans outstanding. That’s just above the historic average growth rate of 8%, and higher still than the 7.7% growth rate in 2021.

  • Learn more the current state of credit unions in CUNA’s most recent monthly report and check out these credit union trends to watch.
  • Use this angle: Personalization is the key to growing the credit union industry as consumers prioritize digital capability. Focus on how Salesforce can drive enhanced personalization, position key data at the fingertips of those who can generate impact, and create a greater ability for creative strategy and critical transformation in the credit union industry.
