Topic: Trade Credit Insurance – Addressing today’s CFO concerns involving the AR Asset
Speaker: Haydn Morris, Head of New Business USA Trade Credit, Willis Towers Watson
Today’s top news stories are also leading to some of the top concerns of Credit Managers, Treasurers, and CFO’s. Rapid Inflation, continued Supply Chain Disruptions, Interest Rate Hikes, Geopolitical unrest, and now Recessionary pressures are all contributing to business concerns regarding growth, profitability, and financing. Corporations and their respective treasury teams need to know that they will continue to get paid, and that liquidity will continue to be available. This educational session will expand upon the baseline understanding of trade credit insurance as a pure bad-debt risk mitigation tool to one that can create additional return on investment with added protection from many of today’s economic disruptions.
