The International Trade and Forfaiting Association, ITFA, held its annual conference in Dubai on September 28 to 30th, 2015. AGC Co-founder and CEO Admir Imami attended the gathering of companies, financial institutions and intermediaries engaged in trade and forfaiting.
The ITFA conference brings together banks and financial institutions who are engaged in originating and distributing trade related risk and finding creative ways to mitigate threats. Expanding from its original focus on the purchase and discounting of simple but robust payment instruments, such as negotiable instruments and letters of credit, the forfaiting industry has embraced new instruments and created new structures to become a prominent part of supply chain finance. The ITFA acts as a valuable forum for its members to interact and transact business together profitably and safely.
