Igor Zaks, CFA, President of Tenzor Ltd., published an article, Greensill: Lessons, impact, and opportunities for insurers at The International Union of Credit and Investment Insurers, Berne Union.

Supply chain finance and credit insurance were dragged into the discussion. Based solely on public information, we will try to reconstruct what happened in Greensill, how this relates to insurance, and what the insurance industry should do in light of these events; You can read the whole article at Berne’s Union site below:

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?
