ADDISON, Texas, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Think Finance, Inc., the leading provider of software technology, analytics, and marketing services to lenders, joined the dfree® Global Foundation in Somerset, New Jersey as a sponsor of their 5th Annual dfree® Financial Freedom Conference. The conference helps participants – including individuals, pastors, community influencers and other local leaders – learn about achieving financial freedom and wellness.
"dfree® provides tremendous opportunities for consumers and community leaders to get smart about effectively managing personal finances, and this year's conference was a big part of advancing that mission," said Martin Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Think Finance. "Think Finance has sponsored the dfree® conference every year since its inception, and we were proud to do so again this year. As a fintech leader providing cutting-edge technology to online lenders, Think Finance understands firsthand how critical it is for consumers to have the tools necessary to manage their finances, especially those who aren't able to access credit through traditional channels."
A leading fintech innovator, Think Finance has been at the forefront of developing tools and technologies that enable lenders to reach populations that historically have been underserved by the financial services industry. More than 90 million Americans are unbanked or underbanked, according to the latest data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
"Think Finance has been a valuable dfree® partner since our inaugural conference in 2012, and we are thrilled the company is continuing its support this year," said Dr. DeForest B. Soaries, Jr., Founder and Chair of the dfree® Global Foundation. "Enabling underserved populations to move into the financial mainstream is a priority of the dfree® movement, and Think Finance is helping us achieve that goal. Think Finance's leadership in the fintech space and creation of technologies that promote increased access to credit continues to be a critical component of opening financial doors for pastors, churches, congregations, civil organizations and individuals."
