- The applicability of the different supply chain finance solutions in meeting the validated needs of clients
- An appreciation of the conditions which provide a safer environment for lenders when providing the different supply chain finance solutions
- An understanding of the unmet and latent needs not currently provided by the current solutions and the main innovation developments being developed by funders, fintechs and technology providers
