The new normal- Working capital finance after COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has the potential to create a seismic shift in global supply chains and how the associated finance is provided.

This had brought digitalization and new technologies into sharp focus, with a new normal for collaboration and ecosystem integration for working capital finance coming into existence.

In this exclusive virtual event, Finastra’s transaction banking team in the Asia-Pacific region will discuss what the new normal for working capital finance looks like, and explore how Finastra can help businesses embrace a collaborative, ecosystem-based approach to working capital finance. Participants will also get to ask their questions in an interactive Q&A session.

Tech Insights: The fast-changing face of fintech

May 27, 2020, 16:00 – 17:00 SGT

 

While many companies face an existential threat from the COVID-19 crisis, some sectors are poised to thrive during the economic downturn and also in a future heavily reliant on digital solutions.

Fintech plays a critical role as the coronavirus pandemic limits the face-to-face interaction. Fintech companies will now have to step up their efforts in facilitating access to financial services, and drive the change in which businesses interact with one another. However, not all fintech companies possess advantages in the post-crisis market.

In this webinar, hosted by TechNode Global and part of the Tech Insights series, speakers representing the likes of YouTrip, Pfizer, and Alibaba Cloud will shine a light on the opportunities, pitfalls, and latest innovations from across the finance ecosystem which are moving forward in unprecedented times.
