Used by banking professionals and trade finance experts worldwide, ICC Banking Commission Market Intelligence is the industry's most reputable and reliable source of guidance to bankers and practitioners in a broad range of fields.
It was in 2009 that ICC created a Register database of trade finance transactions to demonstrate to regulators and policy makers the low-risk nature of lending and guarantees that support imports and exports. During its initial period, the Register contained data from 5.22 million trade transactions conducted around the world by nine leading international banks.
The Register’s early information showed that most of the US$2.5 trillion worth of trade deals were short-term in nature, averaging 115 days. The banks participating in the project reported only 1,140 defaults in these transactions.
