Trade finance remains one of the most elusive areas for capital market investors. This event seeks to connect investors with trade finance providers and users to help demystify the risks and rewards to adding this asset class to a portfolio.

Trade is an attractive source of uncorrelated, alternative short-term fixed income with comparatively reduced interest rates and credit duration risk. With the right treatment, trade finance is an increasingly available option for funds looking for low risk and steady return.

Delivered through case studies from the perspective of funds and asset managers, this event aims to build expertise through knowledge sharing, and will consider the following topics:
• Sourcing strategies and transaction considerations
• Understanding the yield, fee structures and where to place this
• The elephant in the room: Greensill and fund fraud
• Reducing friction and the role of fintechs
• The global regulatory environment and future trends
• An outlook on ESG mandates and impact funds
