Chris joined Santander and Falcon Group to speak on “‘Black swans happen’: Exploring the growth of strategic inventory management”

With inventory management (“IM”) becoming the latest working capital lever – with a particular focus on mitigating financial pressures and risk related to holding large inventory positions - the panel provided practical guidance on use cases and implementation. The discussion focussed on:

  • Strategic benefits of inventory management beyond the cash conversion cycle
  • Practicalities of establishing an IM programme, including time to launch
  • Accounting treatment considerations
