27 FEB

ITFA Fintech event and networking drinks, Helsinki, Finland

The ITFA Fintech Committee will be gathering large Nordic banks and corporates for an event which will take place on 27 February in Helsinki, Finland.

This one-day event will be organised jointly by ITFA and Finnish Fintech Ecosystem.  This gathering provides an educational opportunity for both ITFA members as well as Finnish Fintech Ecosystem members.

Innovations in trade finance are making headlines. Transaction analytics, platform-based communities, data technologies, artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain infrastructures, … are upgrading global trade finance practices and contributing to financial inclusion.

How can all players in the trade ecosystem benefit from those innovations today? Will the current trade finance practices be rendered obsolete in the future digital era, or will technology enable an incremental upgrade of established practices? How can banks and corporates develop their own ROI-driven fintech adoption plan?

Join us at this fintech discovery day organised jointly by ITFA and Finnish Fintech Ecosystem and learn how the various ITFA fintechs help banks, their clients and their capital market investors today and how you could benefit too. At the end of this educational briefing, you will be equipped with deeper insights on actionable trade-focused innovations.
