Trade Talk: De-Risking Your International Sales

May 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Nonpayment has always been one of the biggest risks and concerns for exporters. While cash in advance or a letter of credit are often seen as effective ways to mitigate risk, they are not without their own drawbacks. To be successful in foreign markets, exporters need to find solutions that protect themselves without putting their client in an unfavorable position. This is where export credit solutions can be a powerful tool for exporters. Export credit insurance can even be used by savvy exporters to expand their borrowing base with their bank.

In this webinar, IBD Director Aaron Miller will speak with John Strayhorn of Global Insurance Services to explain the many ways export credit insurance can position the exporter for stronger growth overseas.

A confirmation email with the Zoom login information will be sent after registration – a day before before the event – please be on the lookout for it.
