Awards | 12 July 2016

And now for what the trade finance community has been waiting for...winners of the TFR new-look Excellence in Trade Awards 2016.

Every year, TFR celebrates the best of trade and how it is financed, and for 2016 we have no less than 70 award winners receiving their much-deserved accolades.

As explained in the nomination process , in line with our new-look magazine and country coverage, we have restructured the award categories to encourage more in-country voting, giving a chance for both global banks and local banks to shine and have their customers tell us why they deserve recognition. To ensure each award gets the focus it deserves, there is only one category award winner with no other placings.

This has resulted in a much wider participation in the voting, and along with the submissions received and feedback from the editorial advisory board, we have arrived at a list that takes on board the mix of reader voting, industry comment and testimonials, and our own observations here at TFR of who is doing what in the dynamic and varied landscape that is global trade.

I am often asked for more precise detail of how a placing has been arrived at, and would like to take this opportunity to remind readers that content of voting feedback is entirely confidential, and placings are entirely down to a mix of voting, track record and TFR research. Also, this placing list is final.

Please join me in congratulating our winners and don’t forget all winners have the opportunity to collect their awards at the BAFT Conference on International Trade in Chicago, 26 to 28 October 2016.
