The shift in supply chains
We seek to discuss the challenges and opportunities
within the modern-day supply chain:
• Other than pricing, what have been some of the
additional impacts caused by political, economic, and
environmental threats at a global and regional level?
• Who is financing the shift in costs across the supply
chains, particularly in LatAm?
• Which new strategies are being implemented to
mitigate further risks?

Supply Chain Finance is defined as the use of financing and risk mitigation practices and techniques to optimise the management of the working capital and liquidity invested in supply chain processes and transactions. In practice, SCF is generally used to describe buyer-led receivables finance structures (also known as reverse factoring). This WOA Learning Lab compares and contrasts buyer-led receivables finance with traditional seller-centric receivables finance; it aims to contribute to the successful development of this financing technique.
Igor Zax (Zaks), CFA, President of TenzorAI, will present at TXF New York 2018 Transformative Trade, Treasury and Supply Chain conference 13 September 2018.
