Paris, September 18th, 2019 – Tinubu Square, a leading provider of credit insurance, surety and trade finance solutions, is to be a Silver Sponsor at this year’s ACORD Connect (29-30 October, Boston, USA).

Tinubu Square will present a Breakout Session during ACORD Connect, with Olivier Placca, Deputy CEO chairing a panel of recognized industry experts including Nicole Dechiaro of Crum & Forster Group and Greg Davenport, Senior Vice President at Liberty Mutual. The focus of the panel’s discussion will be ‘Defining and driving implementation of ACORD standards for specialty lines’, which will include discussion of the standards dedicated to surety which were recently defined with the valuable input of both panelists. As well as sharing their insights, they will also discuss to what extent the surety experience can benefit other specialty lines of business including trade credit, medium-term and political risk.

Olivier Placca commented: “We became a vendor member of ACORD at the beginning of this year because the work of the organization aligns strongly to our core product offerings, including our newly launched Tinubu Bonding Insurance Suite. The ability to support evolving regulation as well as standards for document exchange format is essential for any technology solution to be successful in this market. Our customers can be reassured that through our membership in ACORD, we will facilitate their ability to integrate with the ecosystem and make it easy and straightforward. We are looking ahead to the forthcoming ACORD Connect event to meet with customers and partners and be involved in hosting this important panel session."
