Trade Finance Distribution Initiative launches Originate and Distribute whitepaper, covered by the specialist press

The Trade Finance Distribution Initiative, an industry-led initiative to make trade finance an investable asset class – has released a whitepaper discussing the potential for the originate-and-distribute model to transform the trade finance sector and reduce the US$1.5 trillion gap between the demand and supply of trade finance.

The whitepaper, produced in collaboration with online trade finance distribution platform Tradeteq, the International Trade and Forfaiting Association (ITFA) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) United Kingdom, explores the impact of post-2008 banking regulation on the trade finance industry – arguing that the introduction of non-bank capital is key to helping resolve the sector’s financing gap.
