11:50 AM PROACTIVE APPROACHES TO THE ECONOMY: Navigating Volatility For Opportunities

The possibility of an economic slowdown is always in the back of business leaders and investors’ minds. Current predictions among economists put an economic slowdown sometime in 2020 and yet, among polled CFOs, a slowdown could easily be occurring by the year’s end. As such, now is the time for companies to start taking preventative measures and tightening their budgets in order to prepare for a possible downturn. Trade unease in domestic, as well as, global markets has created volatility and led to decreased growth. The Great Recession taught us that no business is too big to fail and as the current business landscape starts to show warning signs, leaders need to take heed.

In this session, find out more about:
  • Proactive, instead of reactive, solutions to navigate the current economic landscape
  • Developing flexibility with trade finance
  • Diversifying funding and suppliers
  • Assessing implications of current regulatory measures on the global economy
