Call for application- Solution Showcase

The members of BAFT’s Global Trade Industry Council (the “GTIC”), the Global heads of trade finance at their respective financial institutions requested a single venue to hear pitches from various providers on a common trade problem faced by the industry today. If you have the solution, working on a solution or even just have an idea in its infancy stage to address this problem, here’s your opportunity to pitch your solution in front of 200+ trade professionals including various regional and global trade industry heads during the Solution Showcase to be held at the BAFT 26th Annual Conference on International Trade!

As a bonus, the winning solution as judged by a panel of trade experts, will have a chance to showcase their solution at another 2017 BAFT conference of their choice!

Trade Problem

How to identify a “real” receivable and perfect interest in that receivable?
  • Is there a way to prevent double financing?
  • Since the way to perfect interest in the receivable differs from country to country, is there a way to identify differences?
  • Given those differences is there a way to automate the process?
