To mark the 15th anniversary of their Paris subsidiary, BPL Global celebrated at the British Ambassador’s grandiose residence in the French capital.
Joined by Trade and Forfaiting Review along with leading figures in the trade finance, and credit and political risk insurance (CPRI) industries, BPL Global’s leaders highlighted the key pressures for the market today: the UK’s upcoming referendum on EU membership and the growing anti-trade movement.
Regarding the UK’s potential withdrawal from the EU, Charles Berry, the specialist insurance broker’s chairman, stressed that “even if the UK opts out, BPL Global will stay in. We will do whatever is necessary to service our clients, not only in France, but also in Germany, Italy and Spain.”
Berry also championed the CPRI market as an unquestionable good for global economic development. Berry added, “BPL Global will remain loyal to the principles supporting international trade. I have every confidence that we will be doing more and better business for the next 15 years and beyond. Minor obstacles created by political shifts will not change that.”
