Tradewind Finance Joins FCI’s Global Factoring Summit in Mumbai

Tradewind Finance is pleased to share that it was invited to participate in FCI’s Global Factoring Summit held in Mumbai, India on February 27. The summit gathered factoring companies, senior banking executives, and trade marketplace providers both from inside and outside of India and also welcomed various Indian government officials. As a longtime member of FCI, the global representative body for factoring, Tradewind took the opportunity to network with industry leaders at the event, exchange market insights and trends, and explore partnerships where a two-factor system is required in import-export transactions.

Peter Mulroy, Secretary General at FCI, and Neal Harm, FCI’s Deputy Secretary General, delivered the summit’s opening remarks, which were followed by panel discussions and talks on topics including, ‘Risk Mitigation Tools of Trade Receivables’, ‘Best Practices’ across different markets, ‘The Importance of incorporating ESG in Supply Chain Finance’, and ‘The experience of implementing a state-of-the-art receivables application in India’. Furthermore, the summit educated local and regional players on developments and industry updates taking place in India.

Attending the event from the Tradewind team were Peter Maerevoet, CEO Asia; Soheil Zali, Regional CEO Middle East and South Asia; Ragi Naveen, Regional Credit & Risk Director – Middle East and South Asia; and Shreejita Seth, Marketing Manager at the firm.

Through the summit, Tradewind was able to strengthen its commitment of providing informed cross-border receivable finance for India’s growing businesses, as well as for importers and exporters in other markets around the globe. It would like to extend a special thank you to FCI for the invitation to such an engaging event.
