BCR’s inaugural Supply Chain Finance Summit-APAC in Singapore focuses on the growth of supply chain finance across the APAC region. With local governments, international and regional banks; and investors all actively encouraging the development of local and cross-border SCF programmes, it is now, more than ever before, vital to review the latest developments in this market and understand how to capitalise on opportunities in this region.
The forum’s agenda covers key topics impacting the industry and showcases successful new market entrants. The topics at the forum covered included establishing cross-border and global SCF programmes, addressing the SME finance gap, pioneering Fintechs and blockchain technology and identifying SCF opportunities.
Ms Denise Ang, Managing Director at Nufin Data, was also an invited panellist at the conference. The panel, which also included Mr Robert Lin, CEO of Seabury Trade Finance and Jordane Rollin, Executive Director & Head of Digital Transformation & Trade Finance Global Products at Standard Chartered Bank discussed about the Digitisation of Supply Chain Finance.
The panel spoke about technologies disrupting the market and current customer pain points when developing SCF programmes in the region. They discussed and shared their opinions on how technology become the enabler in matching funders with the needs of people who can’t find financing in a more time and cost-efficient manner and how are new technologies further enabling dynamic product offerings to current and new clients, before ending off with identifying key challenges faced by technology firms across the region and those looking to move into the Asia market.
