With recent catastrophic events around the globe, corporations must now consider an integrated approach to address supply chain and risk management to ensure that the company's balance sheet is fully protected.
At this seminar, attendees will better understand supply chain exposures and challenges that are created with such catastrophic events. Panelists will highlight company supply chain risks and the difficulty they present in meeting contractual obligations. We will also examine the causes and costs of supply chain disruption, and discuss analysis tools and financial solutions including insurance and captives. Attendees will learn ways in which companies in the pharmaceutical, energy, and other manufacturing industries, can expand their supply chain management activities to include an integrated risk mitigation strategy that includes a special purpose vehicle. The approach will go beyond the per-unit cost of goods and include risk mitigation strategies to improve the long-term financial performance of the company and its affiliates.
