Submissions are now open for the GTR Leaders in Trade awards and GTR Best Deals, which highlight excellence in the trade, commodity, supply chain, export finance and fintech markets.

As of last year, GTR has rolled both of these esteemed awards into one nomination process. This means that we now use submitted Best Deals to substantiate why institutions should be awarded as Leaders in Trade.

We have introduced new categories for both awards, as well as new criteria, so please ensure you are familiar with these. All the details can be found here.
