Tradewind was front and center at this year’s TXF New York: Transformative Trade, Treasury, & Supply Chain Finance event that was held at Convene Midtown in New York City on September 13. The event, which was co-sponsored by Tradewind, brought together treasurers, risk managers, supply chain specialists, bankers, lawyers, and insurers and covered new developments emerging across trade finance in technology, working capital optimization, regulation, risk mitigation, sustainability, and cash management. John Stillwaggon, CEO of the Tradewind USA division, took the stage and moderated a panel on “Transformative Tech: Disrupting Trade Finance Through Big Data, AI, & Blockchain.”
As an emerging market, China represents a fast-growth economy replete with the talent and technology needed to thrive in the global marketplace. Tradewind’s funding is helping Chinese companies across the electronics, seafood, apparel, automobile, and chemicals sectors, among others, achieve their own growth goals, conduct trade on a greater international level, and reach their global potential.
Industry professionals who were gathered at TXF New York 2018 offered up their experiences with finance, technology, and service providers, and in turn gained insights on where the market stands, where it is moving and how to engage with the modern landscape of trade.
