AWDC Holds Diamond Financing Seminar

On Friday 13 February, the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) organized a seminar on diamond financing in collaboration with Febelfin, the Belgian Financial Sector Federation.

This seminar, attended by some 15 banks, including the traditional major banks, Indian banks specializing in diamonds, as well as private banks, explained how diamond financing works.

The Antwerp World Diamond Centre held similar seminars previously in Singapore and in the framework of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

"As with the earlier editions, last Friday once again demonstrated that banks have significant interest in diamond financing," the AWDC said in a statement.
