Shift in supply chains
We seek to discuss the challenges and opportunities
within the modern-day supply chain:
• Other than pricing, what have been some of the
additional impacts caused by political, economic, and
environmental threats at a global and regional level?
• Who is financing the shift in costs across supply
chains, particularly in LatAm?
• Which new strategies are being implemented to
mitigate further risks?
Discussion leader: Igor Zax, President, TenzorAI
Supply Chain Finance is defined as the use of financing and risk mitigation practices and techniques to optimise the management of the working capital and liquidity invested in supply chain processes and transactions. In practice, SCF is generally used to describe buyer-led receivables finance structures (also known as reverse factoring). This WOA Learning Lab compares and contrasts buyer-led receivables finance with traditional seller-centric receivables finance; it aims to contribute to the successful development of this financing technique.
Igor would present on a panel “The Digitalisation Debate: How Are New Technologies Impacting Short Term Trade Credit?”
The Digitalisation Debate: How Are New Technologies Impacting Trade Credit?
Technology in trade credit is not so much a question of if, more a question of when. The answer to that seems to be ‘very soon, if not now’ so instead this panel will look at the how. Much talk of a blockchain revolution and Artificial Intelligence has left many wondering how exactly this will impact the industry. So this panel will debate:
What are the current tools available for trade?
What impact could existing technologies have?
What are the obstacles to implementation?
What type of evolution are we going to see?
