Big Data credit decisioning, connected cars, cyber-crime in automotive finance and how artificial intelligence is currently being used in the industry are some of the upcoming hot topics at the first ever White Clarke Group Auto Captives Summit being held in London on the 11th of November.

Recent research by Deloitte in its Global Automotive Consumer Study reveals that affordability and high operational and maintenance costs are the top factors deterring Generation Y, the technology savvy children of the 1980s and 1990s, from buying cars. Gen Ys want lower prices, fuel efficiency, and more affordable payment options.

The enormous potential from Gen Ys and their successors is just one of the topics to be considered at White Clarke Group’s first Auto Captives Summit. The summit represents a unique opportunity for senior captive auto finance executives to meet to consider and debate the transforming landscape of auto finance.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Jonny Combe, General Manager, Product & Channel Development, BMW Group Financial Services, who will explore how Generation Y & Z are likely to research, buy and finance cars – and how these changes will profoundly affect the way in which auto finance captives sell finance.
  • John Ellis, former Global Technologist and Head of the Ford Developer Program will be discussing how Google plans to monetise the data in connected cars and the opportunities this presents for manufacturers and captives. 
  • Other speakers include Nick Mothershaw – Director of Fraud at Experian, and Erki Kert, CEO and Big Data Scientist at Big Data Scoring. 

This event is organised in conjunction with the International Auto Finance Network (IAFN) Autumn Conference which takes place on the following day at the same venue.
