Short-term Trade and Supply Chain Finance 2013

Nov 25 - Nov 26, 2013
It was the best organised, moderated conference I've been to for ages, wealth of topics but not too broad. Good participation with plenty of opportunity to contribute to discussions

Our approach

Conference themes

1) Supply Chain Finance 2.0

The ‘industry’ - as it is defined; is at something of a crossroads.

Short-term Trade & Supply Chain Finance 2013 is a forum for the senior players in this sector – providers, importers, exporters, users and non-users – to address the obstacles to development, and refine the term and the product.

We aim to close the knowledge gap. More institutions need to get their head around what different products mean, and how valuable they really could be.

We will take the debate forward. The term 'supply chain finance' has changed. The way it can be used is still unclear. The size of the market cannot be questioned.

But what is holding the sector back?

Within a myriad of different solutions...

What do importers and exports actually need?
How will it effect their business?

This forum will look at how we can gear up for the expansion of supply chain finance, and what this will look like.

2) The evolution of short-term trade finance: Universal provision, standardization and efficiency through innovation

The world of short-term trade finance is far wider, but often gets swallowed up by discussions on supply-chain finance. Therefore, coverage of innovations that are an alternative to supply chain are of equal importance.

  How has the issuance of LCs evolved?
  How much of the process can be automated?
  Are different players in the industry asking for too much documentation?
  What other solutions to the challenges of working capital exist?
  How big can securitization of trade receivables be?
  Will it always be a niche area?
  How have export credit agencies become involved in support of SMEs and short-term trade?
