A Trade Credit Facility is a form of financing international trade flows. It exists to mitigate, or reduce, the risks involved in an international trade transaction.
There are two players in a trade transaction: >Exporter - who requires payment for their goods or services, and Importer - who wants to make sure they are paying for the correct quality and quantity of goods.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
As international trade takes place across borders, with companies that are unlikely to be familiar with one another, there are various risks to deal with. These include:
Payment risk: Will the exporter be paid in full and on time? Will the importer get the goods they wanted?
Country risk: A collection of risks associated with doing business with a foreign country, such as exchange rate risk, political risk, and sovereign risk. For example, a company may not like exporting goods to certain countries because of the political situation, a deteriorating economy, the lack of legal structures, etc.
Corporate risk: The risks associated with the company (exporter/importer): what is their credit rating? Do they have a history of non-payment?
Depending on the nature of the relationship with our client we will work to mitigate the above risks. Our team of experts will procure, negotiate pricing, terms of payment and other terms of sale which represent our client’s best interest, and arrange for appropriate trade credit facility products including the issuance of credit instruments prior to shipment.
The range of services offered will vary and be tailored to a client's individual needs
