TARGET AUDIENCE

General practitioners working in banks, corporates, or financial institutions in functions such as relationship management, credit and compliance, but with an interest in trade finance.

Course Objectives

This introductory course provides a practical overview of the high-growth area of Supply Chain Finance (SCF)—an emerging proposition in the financing of international commerce which covers the majority of global trade flows.

Upon completion, you will be able to engage effectively and credibly with clients, recognize opportunities to propose SCF techniques as potential solutions to

the needs of importers or exporters, and correctly describe the nature of SCF relative to traditional trade financing options such as documentary letters of credit.

You will also gain an appreciation for some of the emerging technologies and business models that will shape SCF in the coming years
