Date 17 March 2020
This article is intended to provide business leaders with a perspective on how to mitigate the immediate and potential financial risks posed by this crisis, with a special focus on short-term and long-term financing solutions.

Alternative financing can provide innovative solutions that can coexist with bank financing.
