Open to all BHETA members, the event will update attendees on the latest credit and risk management issues in retail trading. The agenda includes the current trading climate, specific retail accounts and how they are performing against trading terms, topical subjects such as corporate purchases and reinvestment, as well as a general overview of the retail sector.
BHETA chief operating officer Will Jones commented: “The turnout for these events just rises all the time – and while it could be argued that it’s the challenging nature of the times which motivates this, the atmosphere at BHETA credit forums is actually getting more positive all the time.
“Inevitably, certain retail names are mentioned with caution, but such mentions are increasingly associated with the restarting of relationships in the wake of new investments. It’s all about mutual support yielding mutual benefit, and it’s an increasingly opportune time to explore all the routes to market.”
Aimed primarily at credit and finance professionals within supplier businesses, and hosted by credit reporting company Experian, the event is workshop- and discussion-based.
BHETA members who have not previously attended a Credit Forum are invited free of charge on the first occasion, while a full Credit Forum membership costs £350 per annum for the three sessions.
