The ITFA Board is pleased to announce the following three new members.

Falcon Group is a leading specialist provider of bespoke financial solutions that enable manufacturers, producers, traders, importers and exporters to grow their business and penetrate new markets. 

Whilst they do not offer off the shelf facilities, their solutions are based upon a range of established financing options, including pre and post shipment, asset backed inventory, receivables based and supply chain financing.  Forfaiting is a natural extension of these activities and Falcon has added a dedicated team focusing on non-recourse financing of export receivables, covering extended terms in both mature and emerging markets. 

Falcon is expanding its range of activities and geographical coverage.   
Ray Webb will be the main delegate for all ITFA related matters.

BPL Global is a specialist credit and political risk insurance (CPRI) broker serving traders, investors and financial institutions that trade, invest and lend internationally, with a strong focus on emerging markets.

Established in 1983, BPL Global is an independent, employee owned, award winning firm, with offices in London, Paris, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai, and affiliated offices in Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Milan, New York, Sao Paulo and Shanghai.

As an insurance broker, BPL Global acts unambiguously for the policyholder, although when placing insurance they do provide some services to the insurers with whom they place the business. They therefore allow the client, their principal, to fix the basis and amount of remuneration as its agent. When remunerated by commission, they take no secondary payments from the insurers in the form of contingent commissions placement service agreements (PSAs).

Anthony Palmer will be the main delegate for all ITFA related matters.

JLT Specialty provides insurance broking, risk management and claims services for clients across a wide range of business sectors. They have grown by applying their skills where they make the biggest difference for clients and it is this focus which differentiates them from the competitors.

JLT Specialty’s Credit, Political & Security risks team advice upon risk and structure solutions that enable trade and investment, mobilise finance and secure people and assets, realising opportunity in volatility.

The team of ninety risk specialists form a global practice across 13 offices spanning nine time zones. They think globally, but act locally; the team delivers consistent best practice, market leverage, and competitive pricing, whilst addressing local nuance. They pride themselves on working for corporate leaders in sectors as diverse as oil and gas, mining, power, telecommunications and transport sectors, and have particular experience in dealing with banks and export credit agencies.

Edward Nicholson will be the main delegate for all ITFA related matters.
