London, 29th June 2023 - Trade Ledger, the global technology provider for the commercial banking and financial services industry, is excited to announce the opening of its new office in Krakow, Poland. This strategic expansion marks Trade Ledger’s first development hub in the EU, further strengthening its global footprint and enhancing its ability to service its global clients.
