Course Overview

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.
