This year they won the Best Supply Chain Finance Bank in North America for the first time, and proved that their in-depth knowledge, high levels of service and innovative approach also apply to working capital solutions," said Bruno Alves, London-based editor of Trade Finance magazine.

The Trade Finance survey ranks firms based on votes gathered from industry players and members of the magazine's editorial team. Manufacturers, exporters, importers, traders, government and multilateral agencies were consulted for their input on this survey.
