    Supply Chain Finance and Optimizing your Working Capital

    Organizations are increasingly aware of the economic value contained in their physical supply chain – customers, suppliers, and broader distribution channels particularly as they shift from global to regional and local. Buyer-centric solutions such as Supply Chain Finance (also known as Approved Payables Finance or Reverse Factoring) and Dynamic Discounting have moved from niche to mainstream in the last decade. While the principles are straightforward, there are approaches that you can take to ensure it meets your goals. On November 3 at 12 noon (Eastern) join us for a lively Webcast hosted by TMAC-Toronto and in collaboration with other AFP chapters across on the topic of Supply Chain Finance.

    Hosted by John Landry, Treasury and Trade Solutions Head at Citi in Canada, this session will cover:

    • The principles of Supply Chain Finance and trends in the industry to help organizations unlock hidden value and stabilize their supply chain
    • The elements of a successful Supply Chain Finance program, and lessons learned along the way
    • How companies are furthering their ESG commitments and those of their partners through Sustainable Supply Chain Finance programs

    John will be joined by Keynote Speaker Pauline Kontos, Citi’s Director, Working Capital Advisory - Americas and by representatives of organizations who have embraced Supply Chain Finance to their benefit. 

    Keynote Speaker:

    Pauline Kontos - Director, Working Capital Advisory - Americas Head at Citi
