Trade Finance Global – Excellence Awards

Trade Finance Global Excellence awards are totally independent. They are presented each Winter for excellent products and outstanding service, covering a range of B2B financial services.

Winning a TFG award is certainly something to shout about and winners incorporate the awards logos as part of their advertising and marketing campaigns. The awards logo is a frequently used badge of excellence in both the intermediary and direct markets.

Excellence Awards will be based on independent reviews, expert opinion and Trade Finance analytics – reflecting market and quantitative data.
