Expressing her satisfaction with the news of the awards, FIMBank Group President Margrith Lütschg-Emmenegger explained that this year’s success was in line with a positive trend established over the past years by both institutions. “Receiving acknowledgement for one’s efforts is always appreciated, especially when this comes from a prestigious and influential source, as is GTR. Such awards serve to further boost FIMBank’s reputation as a reliable global partner in the dynamic and specialist world of Trade Finance”. LFC’s Managing Director Simon Lay was equally pleased: “London Forfaiting has now been at the forefront of the forfaiting and trade finance industry for over 27 years, demonstrating its commitment to the products and to our clients. Our expertise and geographical coverage allows us to offer a global service dedicated specifically to forfaiting and trade finance for our exporting, importing and bank clients alike.”
