commodities digitalisation panel

All you need to know after CTILive! – Part One

Gen10 recently attended the commodity trading virtual event CTI Live! The event featured 6 fascinating panels across the 3 days, covering a wide range of relevant and topical subjects, from supply chain structure to climate change. Gen10 were invited to speak on digitalisation in commodities and on the new trade finance landscape.
In this first part of our quick event overview, we summarise 3 of these sessions:
Digitalisation in commodities: lessons learnt from 2020?
Commodities and politics: is 2021 bringing more disruption than 2020?
Climate change: how can commodity trading catch up?

digitalisation in trade finance

Disruption and digitalisation in trade finance

Commodity trade finance has seen many disruptions in recent years. Lender demands for better visibility into partners’ risk management and supply chains have been increasing, as have technology initiatives to get this information to them. And issues from lenders leaving the market to the recent collapse of Greensill Capital could mean that traders who cannot provide this visibility could find themselves struggling to access trade finance in a squeezed market.

New whitepaper explores commodity management in a post-Covid world

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the commodities industry was facing many significant challenges that depressed trading margins and profitability. In response to these challenges, there has been a growing acceptance of the need to improve supply chain efficiency and operational performance, as well as an ever-increasing emphasis on managing risk and improving data.

Managing multiple agricultural commodities in one CTRM

At Gen10, we don’t like talking about “ags and softs CTRM” as one category that can be thrown together and treated as if these different commodities all had the same physical characteristics and solution requirements. Our experience of working with clients across a range of different agricultural commodities has shown that they need a CTRM solution to provide slightly different functionality for each commodity, whether that’s managing bales or tanks, unique quality metrics, or any one of the many other nuances out there.
