SFNet's Cross-Border Lending Summit - “This Is Not a Drill” - returns as a live online event on September 15 and September 22, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET each day.

For the 9th year in a row, we bring you timely and provocative panels addressing issues that challenge asset-based lenders doing cross-border deals. So much has happened in just the last 6 months: Boris Johnson stepping down, Russia in Ukraine, potential food supply shortages, climate extremes. Companies now must reevaluate supply chains and vendors based in part of geopolitical risk. Not to mention an inflationary environment the likes of which we have not seen in years. 

In this time of rapid change, we are gathering together industry experts to explore and illuminate the current landscape and what you should be thinking about in the months and years to come.


Thursday, September 15
10:00-11:00 a.m. ET
Focus on Asia: Japan

Join us for a detailed conversation on the considerations you should examine with deals involving Japan, including Japanese legal considerations, the taking of security in Japan (and, as an alternative, a true sale transaction of accounts receivable), the enforcement of security and the exercise of remedies process in Japan. This will be the first time the conference covers Japan and it promises to be very informative.
