Trade Finance Basics

Series: BORROWER OR LENDER BE 2019

Trade Finance Basics

In the past two decades Trade has experienced dramatic growth across the globe. Trade finance currently facilitates about 80% of global merchandise Trade flows (about USD$14 Trillion annually). In this increasingly interconnected cross-border business environment, it is time critical for companies buying and selling goods and services (and their advisors) to understand trade finance.

Deploying the trade finance toolbox effectively helps importers and exporters efficiently manage their working capital, mitigate risk and reduce cost.

This webinar explains the basics of letters of credit, open account, supply chain and documentary collections, how and why they are used, how much they cost, and the benefits and risks. It covers how Banks facilitate these funding options and explains how trade finance has been impacted by digitization.

Principal Audience: Investors, Attorneys and Advisors, Business Owners and Executives
