Cloud lending is acquiring a fast-growing share of the $1.3 Trillion Student Loan market – and is rapidly making inroads into the real estate and mortgage lending, business financing, and consumer lending marketplaces as well. iiBIG’s clients are comprised of venture and private equity investors, institutional investors, wealth managers, hedge funds, family offices, and attorneys and consultants. In addition, the Cloud Computing Association has a large, proprietary database of cloud-based technology companies, including many involved in the financial services sector for whom this conference is designed.
