The sell-out session, hosted by our partners on the ABF portal Legion Trade Finance, looked at the current alternative market place and recent developments in an engaging presentation from Louise, head of public affairs and marketing at GLI Finance.
This was followed by a detailed look at the journey and timelines that got us from concept to the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act legislation.
Adam’s lively presentation look at the key events and behind the scenes lobbying that led to the successful inclusion of bank referral legislation in the Act.
Around 60 professionals, intermediaries and funding providers attended the event characterised by a sparky and engaged questions from the audience.
The event was hailed a huge success with lots of positive feedback.
