International trade can be a challenging and highly rewarding business for both importers and exporters - but it’s not without risk!
Besides contractual and commercial conditions you may face, factors such as political, economic and transfer risk all have a bearing on whether your trade transaction is secure and profitable.
When evaluating your potential import or export contract, it’s important to assess where your risks lie and apply the most suitable terms of trade. Initially it may be prudent to seek advice from your bank to structure the most secure banking arrangements. As your relationship with your client develops, you might wish to review and perhaps relax the terms on which your future business is being concluded.
