The Golden Rules of Inventory Finance (20 June 2018)

Inventory finance is the backbone of the “real economy”. Each day banks and traders enter into transaction over millions of tons of commodities that are stored around the globe in warehouses, silos, tanks, yards or other storage facilities, be it oil & gas, soft commodities, metal or other commodities.

The sums invested in inventory finance are substantial. If a transaction is badly planned or executed, the losses are huge. On all levels, specialist knowledge is necessary be it financial, operational or legal.
At this conference, a group of proven experts share their know-how and the Golden Rules that any banker, trader or inspector should follow. If observed, the Golden Rules will allow you to steer clear from the major risks.

This day of intensive learning will start off with presentations by each expert on his field of competence. The second part of the day will be reserved for inter-active learning based on case-studies. Participants will be invited to submit their own questions and case studies in advance.

12th Global conference on Letters of Credit (21 - 22 June 2018)

No matter which way you look, letter of credit experts’ debates revolve around two crucial subjects, compliance and digitalization, in other words the present and the future of LC business. With this in mind, we will talk on the first day of the conference extensively about compliance with Neil Chantry. We shall cover what to do and more importantly, what not to do and how to navigate an ever increasing field of rules, regulations, and requirements.


The second day of the conference will look at what the future may hold and how one best prepares for it. How tech will change documents in Trade Finance? Does the e-UCP provide sufficient guidance? And will digitalization change the way trade finance works?

As interactive sessions, we shall discuss the latest ICC opinions with Technical Advisor Glenn Ransier and vote on what a doc-checker needs to know.
