Managing trade risks
When carrying out cross-border business, importers and exporters are exposed to specific risks, such as exchange and currency risks, non-payment, damage to goods in transit and fraud, etc. Let our experts advise you on the best way of mitigating this
First assess your risk using the Figure 1 below as a guide. What jurisdiction and regulatory regime are you working in? Could there be a foreign exchange risk? Is there any political risk?
Figure 1: Trade risks to consider
Then take a look at your own risk appetite when it comes to your transaction. Open account – with no form of trade finance is risky for the seller and has a very low risk to the buyer (apart from supply security). But payment in advance is of significant risk to the buyer and a low risk to the seller. Can trade finance help manage this?
