What is the UK Trade and Export Finance Forum about?

Location: Queen Elizabeth II Centre | London, United Kingdom

Date: 9th May 2018

The Trade and Export Finance Forum will be bringing together government ministers and trade experts from around the UK, major buyers and sellers of goods and services, traders, funders and banks, covering some of the most pressing topics around trade trends, market insights and the current view on the economy.

The first of it’s kind, hosted by UK Export Finance and the Department for International Trade, the UK Trade and Export Finance Forum will provide insight and bring together thought leaders and experts at the heart of supply chains, buyers and senior market leaders.

In a time of volatility and uncertainty, it’s good to understand financing structures and how your business can benefit from exporting overseas. That’s why TFG have partnered up with UKEF as a media partner at the UK Export Finance Forum. This year, the forum will attract over 350 industry specialists and delegates.

What is Export Finance?

Export financing is an umbrella term covering the various types of financing which allows companies to export goods to other markets (both domestically and internationally). Often companies need financing in order to ship goods to end buyers, and export finance can help bridge this gap through a variety of instruments, including bonds, Letters of Credit and insurance mechanisms.

Financing for exports can help your company open doors in different markets and grow. See our export finance guide here.
