Delegates feedback

“I attended one of the IBH courses in Geneva, Switzerland the course was" Financing Oil and Gas ", the course director was Mr. Howard Palmer. The four day course covered structured trade finance from the banking perspective using various banking solutions for risk elimination such as confirmation on L/C's, avalized drafts, back to back financing etc.......other topics were, political risks, hedging, Bonds Markets, Syndicated loans and much more. The participants were encouraged to take an active part in various case study's and workshops. The overall level of the course material, the facilities and organization during the course was extremely good. IBH also offer an all-in package for course participants which includes: making hotel arrangements, pick-up and drop-off taxi/limo. service to and from the airport, and the course project managers are on location to offer any further assistance and/or information. I can therefore recommend this course to anyone looking for an in depth introduction into structured trade finance.”
