The ITFA Board is extremely excited to let you know about its very first in person event of 2021. We are back for our first live 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.

We will welcome you with tea and coffee from 3:30pm. The event will then commence at 4pm with a Seminar, followed by Networking Drinks from 6pm onwards.

The Seminar is all 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  Andrew Raymond – CEO; Bolero

Moderator – Chris Hall – ITFA Board Member, Head of Regional Committees

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

We are proud to announce that 2 of our member institutions have kindly agreed to sponsor this event. We sincerely would like to thank Demica and Willis Towers Watson for their generosity and support of ITFA. Without their valuable contribution we would not have been in a position to host our first LIVE event of 2021. 

Each member institution is entitled to 4 invites. We kindly ask each main delegate to send an email to, indicating who will be attending from his/her respective institution, and whether they will be attending only the seminar, or only the networking drinks or both. Due to the current situation we need final numbers by latest 28th July, therefore we kindly ask you to RSVP by latest 28 July. Please bear in mind that after this date, we will unfortunately not be able to accept any further registrations.

For those of you who will be travelling to the UK, you can benefit from fantastic rates at the Doubletree by Hilton London, by accessing this site. Should you have issues with the accommodation, please send an email to, and we will help you out.

We are so excited to host you – we simply cannot wait!

In the meantime, we urge you all to save the date and register.
