I am also pleased to share that we are bringing together four senior leaders in the banking industry for a webinar in April, to deliberate on some key strategic priorities and developments and share insights on what the lending business will look like in three years’ time and what their key transformative plans are to achieve their goals. We look forward to your participation.
