What will the digital trade bank of the future look like?

Webinar Date & Time: Thursday 17th August - 9.00am BST / 10.00am CET / 4.00pm SGT/CST

Digital initiatives and the shift to supply chain finance will be the biggest contributors to bank’s 4.7% annual revenue growth opportunity in trade finance, according to the ICC’s latest report. Legacy transformation, eTrade, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Optical Character Recognition (OCR), to name but a few technologies, will pave the way to a predicted saving opportunity of $2.6 billion to $6 billion for global banks (over 3 to 5 years).

In this webinar, leading figures in the trade finance industry will discuss the key findings of this year’s ICC survey, explore which technologies in trade and supply chain finance offer the biggest potential, and how standards can drive forward the vision of the digital trade bank.

What are the first steps banks should consider on their digital journey? What are the benefits to multinational corporates and SMEs of a more digital and connected ecosystem?  What about the opportunity to make the world a better place by driving more sustainable trade with greater transparency into global flows?

Find out how you too can become a digital trade bank, overcoming today’s key operational and compliance challenges to supporting the needs of global corporates and SMEs in this Finastra & ICC Academy webinar.
