ING has been named 2nd "Best Bank in Structured Trade Finance 2013", winning the Silver Medal, by Trade & Forfaiting Review.
ING Bank's reputation in the SCTF arena has made the Dutch trade bank a regular feature of Trade & Forfaiting Review’s Deals of the Year. The JSC Acron US$ 300m fertiliser PXF winner was, in the words of one judge, "a rare outing for JSC Acron and quite a niche market for syndications in which the lead bank must really know their stuff." Other examples of the Dutch bank's structuring track record include the US$ 600m Siberian Coal Energy company PXF, and the US$ 1bn Mechel Mining PXF at the end of 2012.

other areas, a housing bust in one country will have spillovers in
the rest of the world,'' Rogoff said

Well, now we know SOME of what Obama is hiding!
President Obamaâs campaign has left off its public list of âbundlersâ at least 25 names its own finance team considers to be among their most valuable funders, including seven who live in foreign countries, a review of records by The Washington Times found.
In one case the campaignâs own internal documents listed Cynthia Stroum as bundling $400,000 this election cycle, yet she is not on the campaignâs official public list.

The dollar should be replaced with a global currency, the United Nations has said, proposing the biggest overhaul of the world's monetary system since the Second World War.
In a radical report, the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has said the system of currencies and capital rules which binds the world economy is not working properly, and was largely responsible for the financial and economic crises
