Trade Finance Strategic Advisory for Startup Bank

Trade Finance Strategic Advisory for Startup Bank

Startup Bank

SITUATION

The CEO designate of a new bank aimed at supporting SMEs wished to assemble a team of professional advisors to support the application process for a banking licence with the Regulators.

Recognising that specialist support was required to produce the product, credit and operating model strategy for the planned trade and supply chain finance activities, Trade Advisory Network was appointed as subject matter experts to work with the CEO designate and other advisors.

CHALLENGE

The challenge was to produce the detailed product, credit and operations plans for the SME financing solutions. This required the detail and future proofing to meet the expectations of the Regulators, and for TAN to join subsequent meetings with them as part of the submission process.

HOW WE HELPED

Trade Advisory Network oversaw applications, drawing up detailed product plans for the offerings that the client was going to put forward as a bank, addressing the credit policies that they would have.

TAN created the submissions to regulators, and as subject experts were in key meetings offering support and insights on behalf of the client.

Moreover, TAN was then retained to assist in the mobilisation of the bank itself, working with the management and project teams on the implementation of the marketing, sales and operating models for SME financing to achieve a go to market.

E-Learning Professional Qualificaation Design

SITUATION

With the focus and interest of Supply Chain Finance becoming more prominent, The London Institute of Banking and Finance saw a need to develop a formal professional qualification in Supply Chain Finance to sit alongside their other established formal banking and trade qualifications.

LIBF wished to appoint independent subject matter experts to author both the qualification and the course working with both internal and external editors and advisors

CHALLENGE

TAN was appointed to construct a detailed e-learning course that would encompass all aspects of Supply Chain Finance as per International Chamber of Commerce definitions.

The requirement was to draft the course content in a format suitable for e-learning in the knowledge that many of the students undertaking the course would not have English as a first language and would have different levels of understanding.

HOW WE HELPED

Working closely with the editors, proof readers and external technical reviewers, Trade Advisory Network authored the qualification, creating an internationally recognised certificate in Supply Chain Finance.

The course was launched in May 2018 and is now being widely promoted within the bank and non-bank sector.
