Last 28th of April the International Trade and Forfaiting Association held its Spanish regional meeting at Ciudad Grupo Santander.
The event was organised by the Trade Asset Mobilization team (part of ARCO, or Asset Rotation & Capital Optimization) within Santander Global Corporate Banking (SGCB), and together with ITFA ensured a successful event. SGCB, represented by ARCO, is a member of the Southern European Regional Committee (SERC) of ITFA and is actively involved in the association's activities.
These regional events are an innovative forum, where ITFA members meet to discuss industry trends. This event was attended by over 50 professionals from financial institutions, including banks, insurers and insurance brokers, from Spain, Portugal and other countries.
Andrés Ortiz, Global Head of Trade Asset Mobilization: "the event was a great opportunity to share regulatory trends and market practices with members of the regional players' distribution desks."
Sean Edwards, Chairman of ITFA, commented that “ITFA members benefit greatly from these events, specifically, but not only, for the educational content covering relevant current issues of the industry, which we are able to discuss at the highest level with front-line experts. Additionally, these events are a great platform to promote the dialogue between the main Southern European regional players as well as to find new business opportunities. We thank Santander for offering us the opportunity to host the event in their premises which ensured such a great turnout.”
