JUMP TO WINNERS:
NEW YORK, January 21, 2015 – Global Finance magazine has named the World’s Best Trade Finance Banks in 7 regions, 84 countries and globally in an exclusive survey to be published in the February 2015 issue. The award winners were revealed today at the BAFT Europe Bank to Bank Forum in Amsterdam.
The editors of Global Finance selected the best trade finance providers based on input from industry analysts, corporate executives and technology experts. In addition, a poll of Global Finance’s readership was conducted in order to increase the accuracy and reliability of the results. Criteria for choosing the winners included: transaction volume, scope of global coverage, customer service, competitive pricing and innovative technologies.
“As trade finance providers deal with new regulations and their impact on bank balance sheets, it is having a significant effect on trade finance capacity - with emerging markets in particular seeing a gap between supply and demand,” says Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher and editorial director of Global Finance.
