Event Accreditation

The ICC Academy offers a training recognition service. Under the term ‘training’, we collectively refer to workshops, seminars, conferences, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other events having a learning objective and delivering a specific set of knowledge.

The main purpose of training recognition is to encourage ICC Academy members to diversify their learning experience. We also want to give due recognition to the many existing events organized by our National Committees and tertiary partners and bring them closer to our own Membership base.

Invoice Financing – The Good, The Bad & the Ugly


Factoring, discounting, receivables, payables, or supply chain financing - invoice financing has many different names and forms. With Greensill being the latest high-profile collapse in the market, invoice financing has become the hot topic of the moment. Traditionally regarded as one of the most conservative forms of financing, our panel will discuss the use and benefits of invoice financing and its evolution from working capital tool to structured financed product. Topics will include the risk profile of invoice financing for supplier, buyer, and funder, the legal challenges involved with invoice financing, use (and abuse) of credit insurance in invoice financing and digitization and how to make invoice financing work for you. Speakers include Michael Sugirin, Managing Director, Global Head, Open Account Trade at Standard Chartered Bank; Sean Edwards Chairman of International Trade & Forfaiting Association, Senior Executive Director, Head of Legal - EMEA SMBC Bank International PLC and Abhay Narkar, Regional Head of Structured Credit & Political Risks, APAC at Coface. The session will be moderated by Baldev Bhinder, Managing Partner at BlackStone & Gold LLC. The ICC Academy is supporting the webinar as an institutional partner.
