CTFP Elective Course
General practitioners working in fin-techs, banks, corporates, insurance, or financial institutions in functions such as strategy, relationship management, product management, sales, credit, compliance and legal, but with an interest in digital trade finance and in the digitisation of physical and financial supply chains.
Digital Trade & Supply Chain Finance has evolved significantly over the past few years and has become an integral part of the life of all parties involved in the commercial contract settlement process. Many processes have been automated to facilitate the handling of physical supply chain (shipment of goods) and financial supply chain (trade instruments and trade documents) and are in daily use around the globe. The Digital Trade Finance course will provide you with an overview of the Digital Trade Finance/Digital Commerce world including the advent of Fintechs, the legal, regulatory & commercialisation challenges involved, and describe broad ranged trends and solutions that are available to support international trade.
The course will introduce the land of Fintech. Excitement and expectations are high for non-bank Fintech providers to replace banks by driving efficiencies across the supply chain which provides easy access to credit, therefore helping SMEs access capital. These online peer-to-peer lending platforms, invoice financing, working capital financing, non-bank Fintechs—from North America, Europe and Asia —continue to try to bring sustainable and scalable commercial propositions to market. These platforms are cumulatively financing tens of billion dollars of transactions while the traditional financing market continues to account for double digit multiples of trillions of dollars which bring us to the question—what is currently missing and how do these companies scale up?
