Austin, Texas, November 18, 2020 – Abrigo, the leading technology provider of compliance, credit risk, and lending solutions for community financial institutions, has opened registration for its annual ThinkBIG conference, set for May 25-27, 2021. The industry-leading conference will be held at the AAA® Four Diamond La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas. In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Abrigo is also offering a virtual option for registrants.
The 2021 ThinkBIG conference will be the biggest Abrigo event yet, bringing together its “Fighting Financial Crime” and “Manage Risk. Drive Growth.” conferences, which were previously held in the spring and fall, respectively. This year, Abrigo will offer three conference tracks, as well as larger general sessions, to set financial institutions up for success. The FinCrime track will focus on BSA/AML and fraud detection topics, while the Credit + Lending track will cover topics on managing credit risk and making smarter loans, faster. The Portfolio Risk + CECL track will focus on stress testing, asset/liability management, CECL (for those who have adopted and those still to adopt), and more.
For more than two decades, Abrigo’s conferences have been educating lenders, risk professionals, and BSA/AML professionals. The ThinkBIG conference will bring together industry thought leaders, financial institution peers, CPAs, auditors, law enforcement, and regulators for three days of compelling content and networking. Following a turbulent, unprecedented year, ThinkBIG will offer valuable insights into the coronavirus pandemic's implications, including changing regulatory expectations, the economic outlook, and other trends.
“Throughout the past year, we have seen the banking landscape transform quickly in response to the coronavirus. Many financial institutions are looking at growth opportunities and risk from a different perspective now, especially when it comes to digitization,” said Wayne Roberts, CEO of Abrigo. “The institutions that are able to respond and adapt quickly will be the ones that thrive post-pandemic. Now more than ever, you'll want to hear from peers and industry experts who can help you drive innovation and growth at your institution.”
