    A very informative, interesting article that the sell-side of the trade finance market should take note of. Clearly there is a long way for the industry to go in standardising terminology, documentation and generally making the asset class more accessible. I think there is a growing realisation of this and a collective will to change the status quo is emerging - but it will take time. Cheers, Karl Page (Barclays).
