International Trade Awards 2017 – Trade Finance Global

2017 has been a year of continued volatility, huge innovation, and a small slowdown in global trade. The shift from globalisation to localisation has been apparent, and the trade sector has felt the effects of slowing trade.

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

The TFG Awards are presented each year, recognising businesses in the structured trade and commodity finance space, as well invoice and trade finance, and those ancillary services facilitating trade.

Winning a TFG award is certainly something to shout about. Winners often incorporate the awards logos as part of core marketing, email, and promotional campaigns.

The TFG awards logo is used as a badge of excellence in both the intermediary (B2B) and direct (B2C) markets.
