Commercial Finance Week will provide the opportunity for sector leaders and subject matter experts to debate and share knowledge on the issues most affecting commercial finance providers and their customers as the UK begins to emerge from the pandemic.

Commercial Finance Week will bring together hundreds of UK Finance member delegates and stakeholders from all segments of business and finance to discuss the route to economic recovery, the unwinding of government-backed support schemes and what the new ‘business as usual’ is expected to be over the next twelve months.

Running over the course of a week, this online event – free for UK Finance members and associate members – will feature live and on-demand content, including presentations, webinars, panel discussions, interviews and live debates, with a blend of thought leadership and practical advice for commercial finance and IF/ABL firms, providing updates and insight into the latest data and trend analysis, and exploring the hottest topics facing the sector in 2021 and beyond.
