TARGET AUDIENCE

General practitioners working in banks, corporates, or financial institutions in functions such as relationship management, credit and compliance, but with an interest in trade finance.

Course Objectives

In 2014, the value of internationally traded goods and services reached 23.5USD Trillion – most of these represent significant investments for their buyers and often need to be financed with long-term credits. Additionally, buyers established in developing and less-developed countries (which represent 40% of the total imports) are frequently faced with significantly more difficulties to finance these transactions than in developed countries.

This is where export credits with official export credit agencies (ECAs) play a key role. Export credits contribute to the financing of new projects valued at 150USD Billion per year and a deeper understanding of these products is essential for anyone involved in international sales and/or their financing.
