Pre-Conference Workshop: Credit Insurance

Held in conjunction with the Regional Bank Conference, we are pleased to offer a pre-conference workshop on Credit Insurance on June 19 from 3:00PM – 6:00PM. This special workshop is only open to regional banks*.

In the workshop, you’ll learn how the Credit Insurance product can help regional banks manage their credit exposures around the world. This includes:

  • Using the product to cover various trade finance and supply chain exposures
  • Incorporating the product in your underwriting protocols to ensure the bank can service its customers wherever and whatever their exposure is without having to refer customers to other banks

You may choose to attend the workshop only, or register to attend the full Regional Bank Conference. All registered Workshop attendees are also invited to join the opening reception for the Conference.
