Viacheslav Oganezov, Co-founder & CEO, Finverity introduces Finverity: “About 80% of global trade is dramatically underserved in terms of funding, and that creates a big opportunity. Finverity is one of only a few in the space with deep experience in originating not only large and investment-grade clients in vanilla markets, but also quality, private, mid-market corporate risk globally. We then make iteasy to underwrite and fund for our funding partners.”

Michel Meylacq, Head of Distribution & Funder Relations, Finverity explains the TFDi membership decision: “Much of the $1.7tn trade finance gap is due to the operational difficulty of financing trade, and the opportunity cost of setting up programs. Could the gap be smaller? We think of it as an opportunity, which we bring to our funding partners in an efficient and scalable manner. We take care of the end-to-end transaction process and massively reduce the credit and operational burden for both banks and institutional investors.”. Michel will bespeaking on October 20th at the inaugural Investor Day.
