Following a year of volatility, innovation and uncertainty, the Trade Finance Excellence Awards 2017 by TFG have been announced! This year, we focus on those who have demonstrated exceptional performance amidst a challenging climate.

Trade Finance Global Excellence Awards are totally independent, judged by a panel of leading experts.

They are presented each year, recognising outstanding companies contributing to the growth of international trade.

The TFG Excellence Awards recognised exceptional companies and candidates making great leaps in driving global trade, shipping and the wider transportation sector. This allows SMEs to trade and export internationally, a market worth $3tn USD per year. The sector is sometimes hidden away from the spotlight; but is vital in the world of . editor James Sinclair, said: “Trade as a whole needs to be advanced, both in financing and education. The sector will only grow by finding the best talent and promoting the most appropriate financing and logistics solutions. We understand that the sector does not simply stop with the financing side, but needs to be supported and advanced by looking at many areas.”

“We were proud to nominate winners across new and improved categories this year. It’s been enjoyable for the judging panel to look at leaders in the different facets of the sector, along with independent reviews, speaking to category experts, and reviewing websites.”
