By CreditMan Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Legion Trade Finance’s chairman is among the keynote speakers at a major gathering of finance professionals in London next week.

Robin Smith is speaking at the All-Asset and Trade Finance Conference on Wednesday, 15th April, at the QEII Centre in Westminster.

Robin, who has over 35 years’ experience of delivering funding to corporates, will be looking at the ever closer links between trade finance and invoice finance. He will be joined for the session by representatives from Sterling Trade Finance and Trade Finance Partners.

“Trade finance is being linked ever more to invoice finance to present the client with a seamless experience and to improve margins,” says Robin Smith.

“In particular we will be looking at how independent trade finance houses can work with invoice financiers that don’t have the speciality in-house.”

Other speakers at the conference include representatives from headline sponsors, law firm Squire Patton Boggs, along with the British Business Bank, Big Four accountancy firm KPMG and credit insurer Atradius.
