AUDIENCE RESPONSE SURVEY

An anonymous live survey on the key industry trends. A full set of annotated results will be sent to all delegates after the event.

Room 1

GEOPOLITICAL ROUNDUP: THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM?

Despite strengthening trade flows in Asia-Pacific, geopolitical headwinds remain a threat to major trading nations in the region. From tensions in the South China Sea to the US - North Korea nuclear standoff, this session provides a detailed roundup of the key stories to keep your eye on in 2018.

Room 1

KEYNOTE TRADERS' PANEL: A DATA ANALYTICS VIEW OF THE APAC MARKET

With the use of TXF Data, our panel of traders provide a comprehensive analysis of the top trends occurring in the market. Are we seeing a shift in risk appetite from the banks? Which types of financing product are proving popular in the market? Which countries are most active? Are there signs of consolidation among trading houses? How much arranging, structuring or financing are traders doing themselves? Which working capital solutions are they using?

Room 1

NETWORKING COFFEE BREAK

SUPPLY CHAIN FINANCE: HAS IT MET THE EXPECTATIONS OF CORPORATES & PROVIDERS?

With annual volume growth rates of 30-50% in Asia, the supply chain finance market appears to be booming. However, compressed margins and underwhelming revenue figures potentially tell a different story. Has supply chain finance hit the heights that many predicted? Where is it finding most success and which areas are still underserved? This panel of supply chain experts provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the market.

Room 1

KEYNOTE PRODUCERS' PANEL: ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY

As commodity prices begin to stabilise, the road to recovery begins for commodity producers. How are producers in APAC faring and what lessons can be learnt for future slumps? Are risk sharing mechanisms functioning properly or are they too reliant on traders rather than producers? How is technology being used to develop innovative production techniques and help reduce the costs of production?

CHAIRMAN'S OPENING REMARKS

Room 1

ASEAN AT 50: HOW ECONOMIC INTEGRATION CAN BENEFIT TRADE FINANCE

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations represents the 7th largest global market and the third largest labour force. It is predicted to become the fourth-largest economic bloc by 2030. With the ASEAN celebrating it's 50th Anniversary in 2017, we present it as a case study for how the trade finance sector can benefit from economic integration.

Room 1

INVESTING IN TRADE FINANCE: HOW WILL THE EMERGENCE OF TRADE FINANCE AS AN ASSET CLASS HELP SOLVE THE SME LIQUIDITY GAP?

With high yields and low volatility, trade finance represent an attractive asset class with huge potential. However, compared to assets with similar risk profiles, investment in trade finance remains low. Why is this and what initiatives can be made to help develop trade finance into a widely acknowledged asset class? How could the emergence of trade finance as an asset class help tackle the $1 trillion trade finance gap that Asia is currently facing?
