Risk Mitigation in Trade Finance

Risk Mitigation in Trade Finance

Andy covers the most common risks involved in a transaction in Trade Finance as well as other considerations.
Overview

Running a successful trade finance business involves understanding and mitigating the risks inherent within the transaction. All commercial transactions contain risks. These risks refer to the likelihood the seller, buyer, or financier will make or receive a payment. The challenge for a trade financier is to minimise, or where possible, eliminate those risks.

Key learning objectives:

  • Define Supplier Performance Risk and Purchaser Performance Risk

  • Explain how these risks can be mitigated

  • Understand what other considerations need to be made, especially when dealing with foreign countries
