ICC Global Survey on Trade Finance 2014

This Survey concludes that the growth rate of international trade has dropped drastically when compared to the years prior to the global financial crisis.

The Global Survey 2014: Rethinking Trade and Finance is the largest and most comprehensive Global Survey to date – including data from 298 banks across 127 countries.

The relevance of the ICC series Rethinking Trade & Finance has never been greater. This 2014 edition explores the ways in which the trade finance industry is coping with current uncertainties and driving forces in a turbulent world. A major component of the report, the ICC global trade finance questionnaire, was deployed in January 2014 and distributed to the ICC Banking Commission’s 600+ members and institutional partners in 150+ countries, garnering record responses from a growing pool of 298 participants.

Looking ahead, key industry leaders provided their insights on the challenges that may have a critical and defining impact on trade finance over the next years.
