Trade Finance Global has partnered with TXF’s Global Commodity Finance 2020 event, a two-part virtual conference on 26-29th of May, followed by a two-day physical conference in Geneva on the 5-6th of November 2020.

TXF Global Commodity Finance Virtual 2020 will be a supplementary event designed as an innovate solution to connect the commodity finance sector that is currently facing unprecedented challenges, particularly around the vulnerability and interdependencies of global supply chains which have been unveiled by the COVID-19 pandemic.  This solution is not to replicate but to enhance everything you could do at a physical conference with added permanence.

Your ticket will be giving you access to both events (virtual and physical).

26th – 29th May 2020

TXF APAC Commodity Finance 2020 is the only dedicated forum for the Asia-Pacific commodity finance community and returns in November for its fifth consecutive year!

In a time of unprecedented disruption to the liberal trade consensus, market volatility and competition, the global commodities market is undergoing a key period of transition and no region reflects this more. With deal volumes in the last 12 months rapidly falling as well as the fact that tensions between the US and China continue, there are looming concerns over the potential ramifications which China’s slowing economy may have on the market.

TXF APAC Commodity Finance 2020 will see senior commodity finance professionals from trading houses, insurers, producers, financiers and industry service providers gather for a day of debate, discussion, networking and education, to make a genuine impact on deal-making.
