ITFA NERC Summer Party, London 2021 – 12 August

We are back for our first in-person event of the year – the ITFA NERC Summer Party. The event will take place on Thursday 12 August at Savage Garden Rooftop Bar – Wildside, on the 12th floor of the Doubletree by Hilton London, Tower of London.

The Seminar is about Liquidity Management: How is Trade Finance Helping? The management of liquidity remains a significant challenge for many companies; recent trends in the solutions companies adopt have seen a shift away from the traditional practice of relying on medium-term revolving credit facilities, towards more targeted, shorter-term liquidity solutions. What part is trade finance playing in addressing the modern needs of corporate customers? Are banks effective in providing solutions for SMEs as well as large multinationals?

We will have 3 topical panel discussions:

Moderator – Paul Coles – ITFA Board Member; Head of Market Practice Committee

Panelists – Mark Ling – Head of Trade & Working Capital; Santander UK, Neil Shah – Head of Trade Finance Flow Europe; AIG and Ali Ansari – Global Product Lead – Payable Finance; Taulia

Moderator – Shannon Manders, GTR

Panelists – Mansour Davarian – Head of Platform Sales; Demica, Rebecca Trotter – Trade Innovation & Solution Development; Lloyds Bank and Bolero (to be confirmed)

Panelists – Andrew van den Born – Managing Director, Financial Solutions; Willis Towers Watson, Carl Williamson – Head of Trade Finance: UK Export Finance and Huw Owen – Head of Underwriting & London Markets; Liberty Global Group
