Trade Finance Professional Education

As David Morrish, Relationship Director of the London Institute of Banking and Finance reflects his 50 years in trade finance, he talks to Trade Finance TV about why there is such a strong demand for trade finance and transaction banking professional education. It’s all down to a new normal of economic uncertainty and trade wars as organisations look to upskill staff and help them to become as professional as possible.

“I relied on learning on the job from great people, but learned what they knew, rather than having a stronger experience with structured learning. I wish some of these qualifications had been around then,” says Morrish.

Looking forward to 2020, he is confident that trade will continue to grow as China, India and Bangladesh redevelop their exports, although not as fast as it has been in recent years.

    LIBF provides a good platform for e-learning. The contents are rich and very informative. I am sure student or bankers would learn better and have a sound understanding instead of learning the wrong way from seniors or their direct supervisors (unfortunately though not all but some who lack proper knowledge)
