TXF's second export finance podcast of 2018 asks whether the industry is, or can be, a force for good? For this episode, regular contributors Deutsche Bank's global head of export finance for EMEA, Simon Sayer, TD securities head of structured export finance for EMEA, Simon Jones, and GKB Venture's Gabby Buck, discuss whether this is about green loan initiatives, sustainable development goals, economic development or something else?
The debate also asks what else could be done to ensure export finance is doing more? How is this different for banks, corporates, ECAs and governments? Could a more ‘ethical’ export finance also bring new players into the space, such as institutional investors. And, do we expect to see a greater level of convergence between ECAs, development banks and international development more generally?
This is the final discussion before our 2018 “live show” at TXF Global in Prague on the 6 June, where we will also be joined by EKN’s Anna-Karin Jatko and Euler Hermes’ Thomas Baum.
