Paul Ip, Country Credit Head, Consumer Banking, Standard Chartered Bank Taiwan Limited, presented at the 8th WCCRC conference in Taipei on October 23, 2012 and offered a lender’s perspective of what he expects from a credit bureau in regard to SME credit reporting.  Given the short comings of SMEs in transparency it is more difficult to assess the credit worthiness of an SME and to provide access to finance.  He concluded that Credit Bureaus can help SMEs to become transparent to lenders, being able to provide much needed access to finance and benefit the economy as a whole.
