Live Webinar: Filling the $1.5tn trade finance gap: How much can technology bridge?
Wednesday 20 May | 11am BST | 12pm CEST How much is digitisation going to help narrow the gap between what trade finance is needed and what is under offer?
The digitisation imperative for trade has been brought into sharp relief by Covid-19. There’s no doubt that banks and corporates have been forced to accelerate what they offer digitally in very rapid order. When a ‘wet signature’ is simply not available, and papers can’t be stamped or transported, it focuses the mind.

Filling the $1.5tn trade finance gap: How much can technology bridge?
Date: Wednesday 20th May 2020
Time: 11:00 BST | 2:00 CEST
This webinar looks at technology in the context of the crisis. Is the trade finance gap itself widening as a result of the crisis too? How permanent a fix will digitisation be – is this a one-way trip?
We explore the challenges with experienced players and have an open discussion about what solutions are here to stay, and what is just triage.
