Toronto, Canada, September 17, 2014 – – Jörgen Holmgren, Director Finance, AB Volvo and Jacob Katsman, CEO of GlobalTrade Corporation (GTC) and, will be presenting during the Corporate Forum on October 2, 2014 at Sibos, an annual conference, exhibition and networking event organised by SWIFT for the financial industry.

Topic: The growing digitization of commerce and finance - is this what corporates want and if so, is it finally happening?

Businesses increasingly rely on digital data flows to trade. However, paper-based practices were expected to disappear a decade ago and this has not yet happened. What are corporates expecting from a digital age? Are corporates adopting the new multi-bank trade finance solutions as well as the electronic bill of lading solutions? How will those new digital practices impact banks? Are there new business opportunities for banks to deliver risk and financing services in this new digital world?
