Consumer Loan Market Is Growing

New York, NY, USA, 2018-Jul-03 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — During last ten years, there were significant investments in the personal loans market. It was possible due to the inflow of capital and innovative technologies, which caused a doubling of the market.

Although, according to many financial websites, originations of personal loans are falling. It started with refusals to borrowers with a credit rating below 600, which didn’t take place since 2012.

Despite the decline in the origination of loans, all other data shows an increase of interest of the borrowers to this bank product.

The market for unsecured loans grew by 10.8% in 2017. And financial analytics are talking now about a great prospect for the development of this market segment.

According to statistics in 2017, 10% of respondents applied for a personal unsecured loan, a greater interest was shown to credit cards (65%) and auto loans (26%).

Banking CEOs are Concerned About FinTech

The lending market has a long history and now it is experiencing one of the most historical phases.

One of the biggest changes became a rapid development of FinTech (financial technologies).

Several years ago banks and other traditional financial structures were skeptical about online loans. Now 81% of banking CEOs are worried about such fast FinTech development.

Such concerns are reinforced by the fact that financial Internet structures have become quite competitive. Applying to a lender online, via a certain website connecting the customers with the direct service providers, the borrower gets a wide choice: unsecured personal loans, same day loans, debt consolidation etc. In addition to this sophisticated credit models and new anti-fraud mechanisms makes online financial services more attractive than banks.

The Most Popular Loans

According to the last statistic data, the most popular loan products are unsecured personal loans and installment loans. These loans are the most convenient and profitable for the borrowers. Same day payday loans are also popular, but they are most often used in urgent cases when money is needed for a short period of time. In such cases, 24/7 loans are more convenient, since it is easy to get and the money is being accrued to the bank account of a borrower in short period of time.

The thing that makes personal loans one of the most attractive types of financial products is its uniqueness. It can be used for any purpose: making a big purchase, paying for a wedding or vacation, etc. However, the most common reasons for obtaining a personal loan currently are:

1. Debt consolidation (35%).
2. Household expenses (19%).
3. Medical expenses (9.9%).

Statistic data shows that the purpose of the loan doesn’t affect the chances of the borrower to get approved.

Summing up, the consumer credit market is experiencing rapid growth. Personal loans are attractive to the borrowers because of the affordable interest rate and quick receipt of funds. FinTech is developing and expanding, thus the number of lenders increases and the borrowers have a wide choice.

The 15th China Products (Mumbai India) Exhibition 2017 – The China Products Exhibition – To Boost Manufacturing and Trading Opportunities for Indian Entrepreneurs

The last few years have seen India emerge as the world’s fastest growing large economy with GDP growth rates reaching 7% and above. Thus, the economic focus of the world has gradually shifted towards India and China.

Mumbai, India, November 4th, 2017 — The last few years have seen India emerge as the world’s fastest growing large economy with GDP growth rates reaching 7% and above. Thus, the economic focus of the world has gradually shifted towards India and China. By 2030, China and India are expected to be the first and third largest economies in the world, with the largest consuming populations that global companies would wish to attract.

India has a sizeable trade deficit with China and to balance this, Commerce Ministries of both the countries have signed a Five-year Development Programme for Economic and Trade Cooperation to lay down a medium-term roadmap for promoting balanced and sustainable development of economic and trade relations which will give a positive impetus to the India-China bilateral trade.

China has also started investing in Indian infrastructure, industry parks and SEZ sectors with Chinese investments cumulatively rising to $ 1.67 billion till June 2017. Chinese companies have invested mostly in telecom, power, engineering and infrastructure. Several Chinese firms are also in the process of setting up industrial parks. More investments are in the pipeline thanks to low investment restrictions and favourable tax and land rent policies in India.

The 15th China Products (Mumbai India) Exhibition will further assist the escalating bilateral trade by bringing together quality exhibitors to network and interact with Indian entrepreneurs at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC), Goregaon East, Mumbai from November 16-18, 2017.

In 2017, the major provinces and regions participating in the show include Guangdong, Fujian, Zhejiang, Macao and Hong Kong. Exhibitors from these provinces will showcase quality, multi-industry products which will fulfil a wide variety of interests of Indian business people across sectors. Products displayed will range from Hotel Equipment-Supplies, Consumer Electronics, Home Appliances, Household products to Furniture and fixtures, LED and Lighting products, Fashion Jewellery, Apparel and Textiles to Machine Tools, Industrial goods, Building material and equipment, etc.

The exhibition has special pavilions for networking receptions, one-to-one business matching for buyers, industry seminars and much more to derive maximum benefit in a more defined and meaningful manner.

The exhibition is organized jointly by The China Council for Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), Guangdong Province Committee Commercial Industry and Worldex-SingEx Exhibitions (Guangzhou) Co., Ltd.

The exhibition is co-organized by Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute, Department of Commerce of Guangdong Province and managed in India by Worldex India Exhibition & Promotion Pvt. Ltd.

Vivier Chief Executive, Luigi Wewege Announces New Book: The Digital Banking Revolution

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND and COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA and MADRID, SPAIN, 2016-Dec-21 — /EPR Network/ — Luigi Wewege’s latest book, The Digital Banking Revolution, shares his inside perspective on how financial technology companies are rapidly transforming the traditional retail banking industry through disruptive innovation.

In The Digital Banking Revolution, Wewege provides a look at how over the past decade financial service innovations have contributed to a completely new way in which customers are able to bank, threatening the status quo of traditional retail banks, and redefining a banking model which has been in place for generations.

Luigi’s book presents the ways these new technological advancements have facilitated the rapid emergence of digital banking firms and FinTech companies, leading to established banks being forced to swiftly increase their pace of digital adoption to stay relevant, and stop mass client attrition to these agile financial start-ups.

“These threats come at an inopportune time for banks due to mature markets currently experiencing stagnant growth. This coupled with decreasing profit margins due to the competitive pricing of new entrants, and financial customer loyalty becoming ever increasingly more tenuous,” said Wewege.

Supported by numerous illustrations, the book spans a diverse range of topics from big data analytics and mobile payments to the evolving behaviors of financial consumers. The Digital Banking Revolution concludes with Luigi providing his predictions in the book’s final chapter, which is titled The Future of Banking. In this chapter, he outlines how he believes financial services are likely to evolve, and be conducted going forward.

The book is currently available for purchase online at Amazon.com in Kindle and paperback versions, as well as being offered via a number of other major online booksellers. To learn more about the author – Luigi Wewege and his new book, The Digital Banking Revolution, please visit: www.digitalbankingrevolution.com.

Luigi is the President and CEO of Vivier Group, a multinational financial group of companies, providing its services worldwide through representation in jurisdictions across Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and South America.

Baton Rouge Based Roof Crafters Launches New CRM Software For Clients

CRM Product Launch from Roof Crafters

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Oct-12 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Chuck Magee, construction professional and owner of Louisiana-based roofing company Roof Crafters, is proud to offer Louisiana clients more access and insight into the progress of their roofing projects.

baton-rouge-roofing-contractors

As the most technically advanced roofing contractor anywhere, Chuck Magee and Roof Crafters have taken full advantage of cloud technology and developed their own proprietary cloud-based software system. This intuitive, easy-to-use system is only available in Louisiana to Roof Crafters clients.

Utilizing SSA Store Share Access, Roof Crafter clients will be able to track and keep up with all aspects of their roofing and roof related jobs, including warranty information, shingle type, shingle color and when the roof was installed. Pictures at various stages of the project are also provided.

Keeping this information properly stored and easily accessible is also vitally important for many clients that are having roof repairs performed due to damage from weather or other accidents. The portal makes it easy for clients to retrieve information for insurance purposes, or even if they wish to sell their house a number of years later and want to provide the buyers with the correct information about the roofing materials.

Working in construction for over two decades, Chuck Magee realized that a client-access system such as the one developed by Roof Crafters was sorely needed in the industry. Being able to access information at their leisure helps clients feel better about their projects and provides them with a more comprehensive, detailed record.

As a trusted expert in the industry, it was especially important to Chuck that his clients could get as much assistance and information as they needed when they needed it. He states that he is “especially excited to launch this new software for Roof Crafters clients to stay up to date on their roofing projects.”

Chuck knows that every roofing job is different, and having completed a re-roofing of his own home, he has firsthand experience of the challenges and inconveniences these projects can cause for his clients. This makes him a much more understanding and sympathetic consultant for those in the middle of a difficult roofing project, and it is why he thinks that the CRM product developed by Roof Crafters will be such a benefit to the residents of Louisiana.

Roof Crafters Gives Away New Roof

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Jun-22 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

The project at White’s house changed when Vaughn, an Owens-Corning Platinum Contractor, contacted Magee, another Platinum Preferred installer with Owens Corning, to see if Magee had a “backup crew” available in case inclement weather or other difficulties forced the Tulsa team to return home before the project was complete. Being community minded Roof Crafters gives away new roof by providing all the labor to install the roofing system.

“[Magee] said, ‘Hey, I’ve got a crew that will do the whole thing,’” Vaughn said. Materials were donated by ABC Supply, a nationwide supplier.

White’s one-story home was elevated after the storm, but the roof was not replaced at the time. White has lived in the 50-year old house for 15 years.

Team coordinator Dr. Amy Emerson said the team wanted to help White because she gives so much to others.

“She is an incredible lady who uses her vacation time each year to cook two hot meals for children in the Hollygrove neighborhood, who attend a week-long summer camp,” Emerson said. “It’s fun to see all kinds of people come together to do this project.”

Other activities held in conjunction with the team’s visit included a “Pete the Cat” literacy event, based on the popular children’s series books by Eric Litwin. Free books were provided for children that attended. The churches are co-led by ministers Charles Marsalis and Kirk Garrison.

While the long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma team has made them “family,” White said the focus of the week was on the children and not the adults workers. “Even though it’s just for a few days, the children are getting something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.”

DIRECT CONNECT CONTINUES TO ACQUIRE SALES OFFICES WITH PURCHASE OF FLORIDA ISO

CHANTILLY, VA, March 15, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Direct Connect today announced that it has acquired another payment processing sales portfolio, Merchant Processing Solutions (MPS) in Fort Lauderdale, FLA.

This transaction is part of Direct Connect’s commitment to growth through acquisition and is the company’s sixth acquisition since being recapitalized by The Beekman Group in 2015.

MPS provides merchant services to more than 500 restaurants and retail businesses across the United States, with more than $100 million in annual processing volume.

Owned jointly by Yamilet Strauss, Claudia Mosley and Diana Lizarazo, the independent sales organization (ISO) is a perfect fit for the Direct Connect business model: it is an active retail ISO acquiring merchants on the First Data platform, but it needed the financial and technological infrastructure and support to compete in today’s rapidly-changing payments infrastructure.

“MPS has grown successfully because of their people, and their top-down commitment to providing service and support to customers,” said Matt Clyne, Direct Connect’s CEO. “Direct Connect adds financial strength and stability, state-of-the-art technology and highly experienced human resources to the mix, making for an unbeatable combination and assured growth for MPS.”

Clyne said Direct Connect purchased five companies in 2015 and has already laid the groundwork for three more acquisitions in the first half of 2016. Direct Connect continues to actively seek out sales offices with low attrition and a commitment to the highest levels of service and support.

ISOs interested in investment capital or acquisitions opportunities are invited to visit www.directconnectps.com or contact the company at 800.747.6273.

“We intend to be a very active buyer in the marketplace,” Clyne said.

About Direct Connect
Based in the Dulles Corridor of Northern Virginia, Direct Connect provides innovative technology and payment processing services to businesses across the United States and Canada, including retail, restaurant, government contractors and service industries. Through a robust partner program, Direct Connect works with financial institutions, non-profit organizations, associations and software developers to incorporate payment solutions and enhance customer service. With a 20+-year history and more than 25,000 merchants in its portfolio, Direct Connect was recapitalized in 2015 by The Beekman Group, a New York City-based private equity firm positioning us well to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry.

Bmark Energy Announces California Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E

  • California’s Direct Access (DA) Program is Poised to Expand in PG&E, SCE and SDG&E
  • Many Commercial & Industrial DA Companies Currently Save 10-25%

Pismo Beach, CA, June 02, 2015 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — On April 21, 2015, California Senate Bill SB286 passed a Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee (11-0) and indicates the legislature’s desire to support both individual choice (increase the DA CAP) and renewable energy.

This is Great News – and is Electricity Deregulation in Action

Many companies currently participating in the DA program appreciate substantial savings between 10-25% on their generation costs over fully-bundled utility rates, which is why the DA program is so popular and in high demand.

Going forward, we expect the bill to be amended to either phase in the CAP increases or impose some alternative type of participation CAP, and include a renewable energy purchase obligation for new participants.

The Committee Chairman supports the bill and would like to see the bill amended to increase the CAP by 8,000 GWh and would also like to see any new participants be taken from the utility wait list.

** This “Wait List” and Timing are Extremely Important **

To be considered for participation into the DA program, a Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access needs to be submitted by a company to their utility. With these notices, each utility creates their “Wait List” for any future DA openings that may occur under the CAP for the following year.

“It is extremely important that companies realize that the utility Wait Lists for 2016 are being formed NOW,” says Robert Kramb, president of Bmark Energy, “and the deadline is June 12 for any 2016 DA openings.”

Six-Month Notice to Transfer to Direct Access forms are sent to the utility June 8, 2015 – June 12, 2015. If you miss the June 12, 2015 deadline, any DA opportunity for 2016 is eliminated.

Next Steps to Take:

1- Contact us at Bmark Energy at: 805-773-3762 Ext. 3
2- Email your electric utility invoice to: robertk@bmarkenergy.com
3- We will complete the form and return it to you for your signature.
4- We will then submit the form during the utility enrollment period.

Here are links to additional information on Direct Access, regarding FAQs, as well as savings charts and graphs.

Bmark Energy follows the political-regulatory energy changes in California and understands the DA process. We have been alerting California companies to utility-regulatory changes and assisting them in obtaining lower energy costs for over 22 years for both natural gas and electricity. There are two ways to reach us for more information.

Direct Access (DA) is an option that allows eligible companies the ability to purchase their electricity directly from competitive electric service providers (ESPs). PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E continue to transport and deliver electricity and their utility services for all companies in this utility DA program.
