Khilola is EMEA Head of Trade Risk Distribution and SCF Program Management at Bank of America based in London.

She started her journey in Asaka Bank in 1997, a local large bank in Uzbekistan, where she held different managerial roles in Trade Finance and Transaction Banking. In 2006 she moved to London to join The Trade Asset Management team for RBS (formerly ABN AMRO Bank N.V.) to work alongside the Fl relationship teams to originate trade transactions from financial institutions in Russia & CIS countries as well as distribute the entire range of trade products to Fl investors.

The years spent in ABN and RBS gave a huge amount of insight and exposure which led to the incredible opportunity to join Bank of America back in 2011 and set up the EMEA Trade Risk Distribution desk for BofA, which is now an important market player in the global secondary market. In her current capacity at Bank of America she is managing the distribution of trade Corporate and FI assets and driving growth of the regional SCF portfolio through active buyer and supplier engagement and marketing.
