The purpose of this seminar is to spread knowledge of trade and export finance within the academic community and encourage discussion with banks, insurance companies, fintech, law firms and any institution involved in trade finance.

May we take the opportunity to remind our former Spanish ITFA members of the benefits of ITFA membership, as well as those institutions that have never been ITFA members. We encourage you to visit the ITFA website for a list of membership benefits.

Should you wish to attend please RSVP by sending an email on by latest Thursday 19th March. Attendance is free of charge for ITFA members with a maximum of 5 participants per ITFA member institution. A more detailed agenda will follow in due course.

Looking forward to seeing you in Madrid.
