ITFA Fintech event, London

Join us on June 6th in The City of London to gain further insights on fintech developments in Trade Finance and Credit Management.

On that day, you will discover how data management and machine learning technologies are being applied by ITFA fintechs to the benefit of trade originators, their clients and their institutional funders.

“Over the last decade, various industries – in particular retail – have shifted from being software-centric to becoming data-centric. The Trade Finance market is starting to follow this trend too as machine learning is entering the space to further improve business practices.”, says André Casterman, ITFA fintech committee. “Accessing data, analysing it with machine learning and delivering continuous business insights is increasingly proving its value to trade bankers. Some fintechs make this happen in a completely collaborative way and succeed to bring an augmented reality to incumbent financial institutions.”
