2016 was a year of turnaround, 2017 a year of upswing, 2018 brought an actual boom, while 2019 was probably the peak year in Hungary's lending market. It is now clear that 2020 is about the coronavirus and the loan repayment moratorium. But is there a slowdown around the corner for all businesses and all types of lending? At our conference, Hungarian bank executives, heads of retail and corporate divisions and fintech professionals will seek to address the most pressing issues of Hungary's financial sector. 2019 was a year of the "superbond", the prenatal loan and the Bond Funding for Growth Scheme, but what will 2020 be about beyond the coronavirus? What lies ahead for home loans, unsecured retail products, SME lending or corporate financing? Our event will tackle the most burning issues that are of interest to the banking sector and other players in the lending market.
In line with Portfolio's traditions, interesting panel discussions, talks and networking opportunities will make sure that visitors to out early spring Lending 2020 conference can discuss future business opportunities and risks in the above fields. Aside from banks, the event could also be of interest to brokers, legal and consulting partners, IT companies and other suppliers. The banking sector is in transformation and we hope to update our conference accordingly, both in topics and in the way they are treated.
