The upcoming Auto Captives Summit will focus on the emerging digital models for selling auto finance as well as real world examples for success in the transforming digital world of automotive finance.

The 3rd annual summit — titled “Think Bigger” — is scheduled for Jan. 25 at the London Shard. Many will also be attending the International Auto Finance Network, which is the following day at the Hilton Tower Bridge — also in London.

“Auto finance companies who ‘Think Bigger’ about digitalization will dominate the increasingly connected auto finance world,” event organizers shared in a press release. “Tomorrow’s auto finance leaders are actively leveraging the latest technology innovations to develop enterprise-wide digital strategies that optimise business processes, transforming their digital relationships with customers into a lifetime versus a transaction.”

  • Irfon Watkins, chief executive officer at DOVU, will be covering the company's new blockchain platform, which monetizes the flow of connected car data between the driver and the organizations who use it.

In the afternoon, the event will switch gears, and attendees will hear the following sessions and more on  emerging digital models for selling auto finance:

  • Andy Hinrichs, CEO and founder at Autogravity, will discuss his company’s auto finance mobile app, which is described as a “true disruptor” in the U.S. auto finance industry.

  • Royce Curtin, managing director of global intelligence at Barclays Bank, will explore cyber security and offer insights on protecting your business.
