These are exciting and transformative times for the trade finance community. City & Financial Global is delighted to shed some light on the implications of current developments with the launch of The Trade Finance Innovation and Regulation Summit, which will take place in London on September 17th 2020.


17th September 2020

After a couple of years of unprecedented upheaval and change – both in terms of regulatory and procedural reforms, structural upgrades and geo-political events – the sector as a whole can finally take stock and think about the future. Now is the time to properly focus on game-changing modernisation efforts, to plan ahead for increased competition and to prepare for further mandatory changes, driven by both regulatory developments and technological innovation.

The latter will drive the most exciting changes. FinTech and FinTech-related innovation are currently driving a technological revolution, both with regards to addressing global trade financing needs (within primary and secondary markets) through KYC registries, AML filtering and alternative financing, as well as with improving the user experience through big data, automation and APIs. Moving forwards, transaction data, trading platforms and machine learning are the key ingredients for effective innovation in trade finance whilst minimising disruptive change to the existing communications infrastructure.
