International Trade Finance Course

Programme Overview
Providing effective trade finance solutions to customers involves an understanding of a number of key issues relating to their financing strategies, their options and the risks they are exposed to in the process from acquisition of raw materials to collection of sales and proceeds.
There will generally be higher risks for businesses engaged in overseas trading. For example it will be more difficult to sue overseas debtors or suppliers should things go wrong and there are potential political exchange risks to hedge against.
Although the bulk of the finance for importing and exporting is still by means of Bank overdraft in the normal manner, there are several other ways of financing International Trade.
The key thought provocation process throughout the course is that of Trade Finance being undisputable, highly remunerative and a lower risk alternative to balance sheet lending.
Programme Objectives
This course has been specifically designed to cover all aspects of trade finance options and will be valuable to all officers in Trade Services, Foreign Exchange Services, the Treasury, Credit, as well as Risk and Compliance functions of their Banks. It is also relevant for Relationship Managers, especially those with a portfolio of internationally active clients.
The course is intended to encourage participants to think and search beyond the sole analysis of company financials when assessing the risk faced in financing International Trade. They will return to their workplace well-equipped to advise and structure lending solutions for their customers that may not appear viable when based on pure balance sheet assessment.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants should be able to build their understanding of:
