Israel Discount Bank in London has expanded its trade finance operations with the addition of Helena Jarekrans as deputy head of trade finance. She joins John Lambert, who joined the bank in August as head of corporate and trade finance.


Jarekrans has a global remit looking at trade finance opportunities in general. She was previously at SE Banken in Stockholm for a short time and before that Anglo-Irish Bank and Standard Bank, both in London.


Lambert previously spent 11 years with Banco Banamex in London and many years with Banco Santander Central Hispano and Banco Hispano before that.
