RAPAPORT... The diamond-financing landscape has changed dramatically since 2012, when Erik Jens entered the industry as head of ABN Amro’s jewelry and gem unit. Those developments have paralleled a shift in mindset among diamantaires, who are now more focused on profit than revenue, where the emphasis used to lie.

In episode 45 of the Rapaport Diamond Podcast, Rapaport's Avi Krawitz discusses with Jens how the industry made that move, and alludes to new trends that are shaping the lending environment, such as fintech and sustainability.
