ZCA/HFW Seminar: Shipping, Trade Finance, Sustainability and Sanctions - November 10, 2020


HFW and ZCA come together once again to offer the shipping and trading community in Zug a seminar covering some of the most interesting and pressing issues in the shipping industry today.

The seminar will open with a presentation on effective enforcement of international awards in China by Chris Chan. Michael Buisset will then examine the impact of a recent case of the MV Eternal Bliss, in which the Court awarded cargo damages in addition to demurrage, despite no additional breach by charterers. Caroline West will next move into a discussion on the key aspects of trade credit insurance from a financing bank's perspective in light of developments. Sarah Hunt will continue with a sanctions and compliance update and Jason Marett will close the seminar with a look at the sustainable loan market, in particular from a commodities perspective.

The presentations will be followed by Q/A sessions that will allow you to exchange with the speakers on the various topics.
