ABF Journal is excited to announce our next livestream, ABF Journal+ Livestream: How COVID-19 Has Affected Retail Finance. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected retailers more than nearly any other industry, and providers of retail finance have had to deal with serious challenges. This livestream will briefly cover the basics of retail finance and what differentiates it from other lending activities, and then explore how COVID-19 has affected retailers and their financial sources, including a look at the holiday shopping season. Both bank and non-bank lenders have had to adjust substantially, and the process is far from over. The event’s panel of experts will share their expertise and experience in discussing an unprecedented time in managing retail finance.
