This regional one day event brings together key decision makers, advisories and exporters together to debate the future of Nordic export finance.
TXF spoke with Steven Beck, head of trade and supply chain finance at the Asian Development Bank (ADB), to find out more about the development bank’s year-on-year growth in supported trade, as well as its latest initiative to create a standardised approach to the reporting of Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) by banks to regulators.
TXF joined the ICC Banking Commission in Beijing as it celebrates a century of the institution whose founders were dubbed the ‘merchants of peace’. Katharine Morton contemplates the role of peace merchants amid the ‘warriors’ of trade and how China fits into the mix.
Capital is spilling all over the balance sheet nowadays. What should investors in alternate assets, particularly trade, be looking at? Ann Rutledge, CEO of CreditSpectrum asks how investors should kick the tyres and define the new landscape. Banks still have a crucial role to play as transformers of risk.
Manu Taneja, director of regional cash & banking, APAC at GE Corporate Treasury in Singapore sees a role for traditional trade finance in Asia, but digitisation will be core to the future – as will the role of treasury itself.
