"Climbing the Credit Ladder: Short-term loans as a path to long-term credit"


#creditladder 


Monday 3rd November, 14.00 - 15.30

Committee Room 8, Houses of Parliament

 
 
In light of the recent regulation and reform from the Financial Conduct Authority on short-term credit supply, ResPublica is launching its latest report: Climbing the Credit Ladder: Short-term loans as a path to long-term credit. The report will explore the current state of a market that has undergone dramatic change within the last year, and will chart a new way forward for policy-makers and the sector itself.

It will examine ways in which the short-term finance sector can become a source of social good, helping consumers 'climb the credit ladder' through integration of the sector with the consumer credit market more widely, and show how these firms can also be part of effectively supporting those who fall into unsustainable debt. 

The launch event will feature a panel address, discussion and Q&A session. 

Members of the panel include:
  • Cathy Jamieson MP, Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury 
  • Mark Garnier MP, Member, Treasury Select Committee and Vice-Chair, APPG on Financial Education for Young People
  • Russell Hamblin-Boone, Chief Executive, Consumer Finance Association
  • Dr John Gathergood, author of the report and Associate Professor in Economics, University of Nottingham

Spaces will be strictly limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please register for your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Please arrive promptly for a 2pm start.

We look forward to seeing you there.
 
Best wishes,
 
ResPublica
