FinTech has witnessed a spectacular growth in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. While the industry has taken innovative approaches to promote financial inclusion by serving traditionally under-banked businesses and people, it is also exposed to nonnegligible risk that can threaten the stability of financial market. Hence, a key challenge facing the industry is to assess and manage financial risks properly while extending financial services to a wider spectrum of firms (especially small and medium enterprises SMEs) and consumers. Since SMEs and consumers possess little "hard information" (e.g., financial statements, collaterals, credit history), it makes it a grand challenge – how to evaluate and finance them adequately.
