Davy’s, Woolgate Exchange in the City of London had the honour of hosting the 46th Annual Alternative. We would like to extend a big thank you to all those who participated.

The event was very well attended as always, but this year was even more special as we were joined by many of our colleagues from across Europe who couldn’t make the actual conference in Cape Town. The variety of banks who attended was extraordinary with peers from Switzerland, Germany, Holland and Hungary, who made the effort to travel to the City to be present, further demonstrating the depth and resilience of the Trade Finance market and banks’ continuing commitment towards the product.

Many of the Young Professionals contingent also took part in the evenings activities and it is with great pleasure that ITFA announces that future Alternatives will be organised by the Young Professionals Committee. This will give them the opportunity to highlight their already excellent organisation skills and put them to good use for a worthwhile cause in promoting ITFA’s activities for future generations.
