Ian Henderson (Chief Investment Officer, Artis Finance), Ini Ebong (Group Executive, Treasury & Financial Institutions, First Bank of Nigeria), Russell Brown (Global Head of Trade Finance, Financial Institutions, Deutsche Bank) and Andreas Voss (Chief Country Representative Nigeria & Head Trade Finance Financial Institutions Sub-Saharan Africa, Deutsche Bank) illustrated why these structures are needed and used for frontier trade finance, walking you through the anatomy of a typical deal, the various parties involved, and their respective motivations.
