 Washington, DC. – Ovamba Solutions announced today that it has joined the line up of marketplace lenders and institutional investors confirmed to sponsor and present at the 2015 “Future of Alternative Finance” conference in London on September 28th at the Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, London.

This is the first “Future of Alternative Finance Conference” aimed at bringing p2p platforms, crowdfunders, institutional investors and industry leaders together for discussion, debate, explore opportunities and strategies to make the most of an increasingly competitive financial services environment.

Ovamba’s COO, Viola Llewellyn will deliver a presentation during Session 4’s “Developing Market’s for Alternative Finance” segment entitled “P2P Lending in Africa: An Untapped Market for Innovative Financial Solutions”.  Ms. Llewellyn stated, “The opportunity to present at an inaugural event of this kind is perfect.  The African Finance story is still quite new and is itself an alternative within the alternative finance landscape.”

 Ms. Llewellyn will be joining delegates from Lloyds Banking Group, ThinCats and Angels’s Den on the Session 5 panel “The Future of Alternative Finance”.  This final session is the anchoring piece to a daylong conference focused on the future of the asset class, the direction of the industry and the development of technology.  “Ovamba has been on the forefront of technology on the African continent for almost 2 and a half years” Viola Llewellyn said during a recent discussion regarding the role technology plays in African Finance markets.  “We see Africa as a natural destination for alternative finance because performance and corrections in other markets act as navigational points for Africa”, explained Ms. Llewellyn.
