We’re excited to be partners of this conference, this time in person, hearing about the most important topics and updates around global trade, receivables and supply chain finance. I’m looking forward to discussions around the LIBOR transition, delving deep into Digital Negotiable Instruments (following the launch of our ITFA-TFG whitepaper, arguably the most important update of the year), as well as learnings from supply chain finance debacles we’ve seen this year. Oh, and of course, catching up with trade colleagues from around the world – this is long overdue. Free hugs on the house!’
