Trade Finance in the Americas:
In a world filled with greater regulation and risk, this
forum will discuss the world of financing trade. There is
no doubt that Basel III, IV and cross-border transactions
pose further questions around risk, but to what extent
are banks and insurers willing to take on this risk and
how can they alleviate it?
• In which sectors are banks and insurers willing to take
on more risk and why?
• With Basel III coming into implementation in January
2020, how will banks’ and insurers risk appetite be
• Will the Master Risk Participation Agreement help
standardise a framework for the buying and selling of
trade finance-related assets?
• Are we seeing a positive correlation for of using
supply-chain finance instead of letters of credit for
cross-border trade in Latin America?

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 Zaks (Zax), CFA, President and CEO of TenzorAI, and Tenzor Ltd. will be presenting at World of Open Account Learning Lab e-round table 28 March 2019 facilitated by Christoph Spoerry together with other Community Experts. Daniel Huszar, Lawrence MA and Igor Zaks will report, challenge and influence the WOA community during this live session.
