International Trade Finance Awards 2019

Following a year of geopolitical uncertainty, technological disruption and competition, the 2019 International Trade Finance Awards by Trade Finance Global recognise and award those who have succeeded and provided an outstanding contribution to international trade. Trade Finance Global Excellence Awards are totally independent and judged by an expert panel of trade specialists.

The TFG Awards are presented each year, recognising businesses and service providers in the trade and receivables space. This year, Trade Finance Global have announced that they’ve added 7 new categories to the awards programme, in response to the market and changes in the lending landscape.

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.
