    Tom Eckett, Deputy Editor, ETF Stream
    Over past few weeks, fixed income ETFs have widened on all-time high discounts amid the turbulence witnessed across global markets.

  • The Coronavirus Pandemic and Action Plan(s) for SMEs Jul 16 2020 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jahir Miah MloD | Professor Moorad Chaudhry | Andrew Stotz, Phd, CFA | Nurul Hai
    Once the Coronavirus pandemic slows down, it’s highly important for SMEs around the World to categorise priorities of action items and implement a number of immediate survival, recovery and super-growth strategies. Disruption in the supply chain and a sharp decline in demand were some of the major affected areas. Even if the Coronavirus Pandemic slows down in the near term, continued reduced demand would affect the businesses of SMEs to a large extent.

    Some of the key discussion areas:

    - Managing cash-flow crisis.
    - Deep analysis of supply and demand sides.
    - Business re-thinking and re-engineering.
    - Survival and super-growth strategies.
    - Short, mid and long-term continuity plans.
