In light of the growing interest towards digitalisation and the increasing relevance of the subject within the Export Finance community, Berne Union members will have the opportunity to gather in a 2-day meeting to discuss the impact of ongoing technological transformation on the export credit insurance and investment insurance industry.
The meeting is designed to cover a broad range of digitalisation matters, including innovative tools and practices shared among members – from smaller ECAs to large players of trade credit and investment insurance industry. The different sessions will spotlight current and potential deployment of technology throughout the business cycle, from communication tools and customer journey optimization to origination of new deals, underwriting, and cooperation with Fintech companies, engaging business / product developers, IT specialists and other relevant experts within member companies.
