Can export finance be a ‘force for good’?

May 30, 2018

The second TXF export finance podcast of 2018 addresses the difficult question of whether export finance is, or can be, a force for good.

Our 3 resident experts - Simon Sayer, Gabby Buck and Simon Jones; start by debating what we actually mean by ‘force for good’? Is it about green initiatives, sustainable development goals. economic development or something else? And what is not export finance as a force for good? What else could be done to ensure export finance is doing more? How is this different for banks, corporates, ECAs and governments? Could a more ‘ethical’ export finance also bring new players into the space, such as institutional investors. And do we expect to see a greater level of convergence between ECAs, development banks and international development more generally?
This is the final discussion before our 2018 “live show” in Prague on the 6th June, where we will also be joined by EKN’s Anna-Karin Jatko  and Euler Hermes’ Thomas Baum.
