Exploiting technological innovation in trade finance to enhance operating models for the future

Trade Finance is evolving fast, and with increased scrutiny over the profitability of traditional trade finance products and processes, so these processes must evolve too.

The application of FinTech solutions and digitisation of Trade Finance is the hottest debate in the industry. Innovations like Blockchain, machine-learning, and the ‘Internet of Things’ all have a part to play in modernising Trade Finance, and helping your business overcome antiquated processes, and adapt to regulatory hurdles.

The conference is dedicated to helping the market understand how they will adopt new technology in the months and years to come in detail, granting you unique, unparalled access to the thought-leaders driving innovation.

  • Data management and trade finance: Why is data important?
  • Will Blockchain change banking and corporate business model in the years to come?
  • Optimising digital platforms: How much flexibility is required to link the value chain effectively?
