This year’s SIBOS event in Sydney, the largest gathering of financial institutions in the world was a huge success for the Marco Polo Network.

A large number of members attended the event and participated in numerous presentations and panel discussions. There was a lot of interest from the audience with many new financial institutions looking to join the fastest growing trade finance network.
