Axendo attended GTR Africa 2023 in London

Axendo’s Business Development Manager for Nigeria, Adesola Fadahunsi, was honoured to attend GTR Africa 2023 in London last week. The event provided an opportunity to network and meet with key stakeholders in the finance, insurance, agri-commodity, oil & gas, manufacturing and healthcare sectors in Africa.
This year’s event welcomed over 400 delegates from the trade, export and infrastructure finance markets and there was strong representation from companies with operations in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Côte d’Ivoire. All shared a united goal, to expand trade across Africa with the support of trade finance.
During the conference, top industry speakers discussed a multitude of topics, including the importance of trade finance and the opportunities for UK-Africa trade flows. They also delved into the ECA’s plan to widen its coverage in high-risk markets, such as the African region, while remaining competitive to other lenders in the space.
The sessions also discussed ways to future-proof trade finance, narrow the credit gap for SMEs and how financial technology can be used to digitise the credit services and infrastructure in trade finance.
Axendo has a positive outlook about future trade opportunities in Africa and beyond and is looking forward to growing trade ties in the coming year.
Thanks to Global Trade Review (GTR) for a successful event and for the opportunity to further strengthen business relationships with the industry peers, clients and colleagues from Access Bank Plc, The Access Bank UK Limited, FCMB Bank UK Limited, RMB – Rand Merchant Bank, Zenith Bank (UK) Limited. and others.
