This course systematically analyses the various types of trade finance products including how and why they are used, the benefits they provide to exporters/importers, how they are structured and why they enable risk to be identified, managed, mitigated and transferred. A wide variety of trade products will be explained including Documentary Collections, Letters of Credit in their various forms, Bonds/Guarantees/Standby Letters of Credit and the numerous ways in which trade finance is provided, both pre and post shipment. The course will also examine how trade finance differs from other forms of lending and the attractiveness of trade products to corporates as a form of working capital finance and also to banks, both in terms of broadening client relationships and in the cost effective use of their balance sheet.
I really do had a wonderful time during the training and the exposure I have gained. Also meeting with different people and getting to know of more different ways and approaches in different organizations through the interactive sessions we had. I am satisfied with the training, and also look for future opportunities of training with LEORON.

The format of the class and the class materials were quite different from another classes I took, and in my opinion, much more logical.
