Global Finance names the World’s Best Trade Finance Providers 2010

 

NEW YORK, December 15, 2009 – Global Finance magazine (www.gfmag.com) has named the “Best Trade Finance Providers” by category in an exclusive survey to be published in the February 2010 issue. Global Finance editors — with input from industry analysts, corporate executives and technology experts — selected the best trade finance providers in 71 countries or regions. Criteria for choosing the winners included: transaction volume, scope of global coverage, customer service, competitive pricing and innovative technologies.

 

The Best Trade Finance Bank globally will be announced in the October 2010 issue.

 

“Global trade finance volume contracted sharply in 2009, to the extent that lack of financing was part of the reason for a decline in world trade,” says Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher and president ofGlobal Finance.“We have selected the banks that stood by their customers during the credit crunch and found innovative ways to lower risk and speed cash flow from international transactions.”
