ITFA 2019 Young Trade Financier Award

In a continued effort to recognise the contribution of the younger members of our trade finance market, ITFA is launching the 2019 ITFA Young Trade Financier Award.

The Award is an initiative to allow Young Professionals to showcase their ideas and their work for the benefit of the industry through the submission of projects related to Trade Finance. Projects can take any format, so creativity is highly encouraged. Submissions must be received until the 3rd June. Please click here for further details.

The winning projects will make a significant contribution to the trade finance industry. This could for example be by way of contributing to an on-going industry debate such as the accounting treatment of supply chain finance structures, or by way of creating a new innovative product/instrument, by way of enhancing the knowledge shared about the industry (specific knowledge sharing forums and events), amongst others.

This will be judged on the basis of:

A shortlist of the 3 best projects will be announced on the 1st July. These 3 projects will win a free ticket to the ITFA Annual Conference taking place in Budapest between 4 and 6 September (including accommodation). The winning project will then be selected by secret ballot during the Conference after the 3 shortlisted projects are showcased by their promoters, and the award will be presented during the Conference Gala Dinner.

So, if you are a Young Professional, do consider participating! If you are a more experienced member of the industry, please help us motivate the Young Professionals by encouraging as many of your younger peers to participate.
