The 46th BAI Inside in Frankfurt regarding „Investments in trade receivables – the new private debt“ was extremely well attended. The legal and processual aspects of investments in this new asset class were topics that many of the attending institutional investors and Asset managers consider as urgent.
The market overview, given by Marc Wersche (DZ BANK AG) and Christoph Woermann (Deutsche Bank AG) was among the highlights of this event. Christian Faber (Bette Westenberger Brink) presented legal aspects of trade receivables investments, whilst Martin Opfermann (Allianz Global Investors) pointed out challenges and chances of trade finance investments. “Our trade finance investments offer a return similar to high yield bond indices - only with five years less duration”, Opfermann said during his talk.
