Alternative & Receivables Finance Forum

November 23-24, 2022
London, United Kingdom

The Alternative and Receivables Finance Forum returns this November as a two-day event. Join us to discuss current, new and avant-garde finance systems outside traditional banking, which have potential to replace financial institutions in their current format. We will look at the gateways for banks and other traditional liquidity providers to move into this space. Could we be on the verge of alternative finance becoming mainstream? Will decentralised finance become a new major source of delivering liquidity to the trade and receivables finance sector? How will other technologies continue to impact traditional markets? What can banks do to remain competitive and what are the practicalities of investing in the new technologies?

MENA Supply Chain Finance 2022

November 28-29, 2022

Factoring and supply chain finance in the MENA region is attracting a lot of interest as it quickens its development. The region is rapidly growing into a global trading hub between east and west, with open account trading becoming increasingly common. The adoption of new technologies and the recognition of opportunity by investors, banks and fintechs is creating a very fertile environment. In the UAE, factoring and supply chain finance have been given a significant boost by the introduction of a Factoring Law (Federal Decree Law No (16) of 2021) which was issued on 29 August 2021 and came into effect on 7 December 2021. As a result, there has been an explosion of interest in receivables finance there. MENA Supply Chain Finance will examine the impact of these recent developments and the opportunities for the development and growth of factoring and supply chain finance and prospects for supporting the burgeoning demand for finance among SMEs and larger businesses. MENA Supply Chain Finance is not only for banks and financial institutions but also for fintechs, technology providers, credit insurers and all those with an interest in receivables finance.
