Following the success of last year's virtual launch event, IMN is delighted to announce the 2nd Annual Investors' Conference on Trade Receivables will take place as a blended physical and digital gathering 11 November in London, UK.

As the role of trade finance reemerges in a new era of post-pandemic globalisation, the conference will provide a platform for investors, lenders and other key stakeholders to understand the current trends and inner workings of the quickly evolving Trade Receivables sector.
