The need for credit can come for a variety of reasons, and can be catered to by a vast plethora of different loan products. You would have heard or read of various different types of value-added services or features being promoted for different loan products – flexible repayment options, moratoriums on payment, and floating interest rates are all being marketed to consumers. However, the different products on offer and their variety of benefits can be confusing for the average Indian looking for credit. Depending upon their use for the funds – education, paying for healthcare, buying a home, purchasing a vehicle, starting up a new venture – choosing the right loan option can make the difference between sustainable living or having to deal with the constant regret of having made a bad choice while dealing with the fear and pressure of default. Your credit or financial needs can be catered to by a wide variety of financial products available on the market – but understanding which one and where to get it from can be difficult. Digital lending platforms beginning to use their advanced technology and large data-handling capacities to help you find the right credit option or financial product or service for your needs.

The need for financial advice

The confusing world of finance, with its various different credit options –line-of-credit loans, secured and unsecured loans, and instalment loans – make it chaotic and complicated to navigate without guidance. Finding the right product for your needs of the immediate present is an onerous task, and fails to account for future needs. While knowing that you need credit is easier to determine, figuring out your other financial needs – insurance, investments, etc. – depends upon an understanding of your financial future and the movements of the market, which are hard to predict even for experts. Many people attempting to make such choices for themselves avail of the first convenient option that they find, even if it turns out to be sub-optimal. Financial advisors are too expensive, aren’t reliable, and can’t be expected to have either the capacity or the inclination to search through every possible source and every bit of your data to find the perfect fit. In any case, human beings are terrible at predicting market conditions – for example, Wall Streets’ predictions for the stocks in 2017 were woefully inaccurate; AI has already replaced them at 32% of the companies in the financial-services space.

Clearly, if you had to get good financial advice, AI-leveraging algorithms are a better bet than humans. So why not use the same technology to help individuals and SMEs find the right credit options for their needs?
