GTR has teamed up with international law firm Holman Fenwick Willan (HFW) to launch an industry-wide trade finance survey, entitled: “Financing the future: looking ahead in commodity trade finance”.

All those involved in the commodity trade finance industry are invited to take part in the survey, which can be accessed here.

The survey covers four focus areas: securitisation, technology, non-bank finance and sustainability.

Your input on these areas can help ascertain exactly what it is that companies need when it comes to commodity finance, and what it is that financiers and other market players can do to facilitate this.

You will also be able to learn more about the work of your peers when it comes to taking care of these financing needs when GTR publishes the report presenting the findings. Results will be distributed at GTR’s Global Commodity Trade Finance Conference 2016, taking place in Lugano on October 25, 2016 and will be available online and in print. All respondents to the survey will be entered into a prize draw, where one person stands the chance to win an Apple iPad Mini 32GB. The deadline for responses is July 4, 2016. All responses will be kept strictly confidential.
