Trade risk evaluation


Course Outline

A practical guide to evaluation of trade risk and presenting a case for finance.

The workshop will provide attendees with a practical approach to the identification of trade risk, risk evaluation, risk mitigation and structuring a funding proposal.

Delegates will require a basic understanding of financial analysis and trade instruments before attendance. Alternatively this can be integrated into the course structure (entry course will become 2 days to accommodate this).

The intermediate and advanced courses also provide extensive case studies and role play in gathering information and presenting a funding solution for credit appraisal.


Entry level 1 day, intermediate level 2 days, advanced level 3 days.

Who Should Attend?

Companies, bankers, lawyers and accountants.

The course is suitable for everyone involved in the evaluation of risk in the international trading environment – to include sales, finance, operations, credit risk and compliance. This course is also relevant to those who prepare requests for finance (companies, bank officers and advisors).
