In international trade, protracted default, insolvent buyers, and political uncertainty are ever-present issues. Unfamiliarity with new buyers may deter sellers from extending credit necessary to conduct domestic or cross-border business. The issue can be more pronounced in volatile regions, where concentration risk may pose a particular concern.

Our Global Clients Group is a unique, internationally coordinated team that facilitates credit placements in more than 50 countries. And our Lender Solutions Group helps mitigate financial risks and enhance borrowing via structured credit solutions that make larger transactions more attractive to lenders or financiers, thus enhancing economic growth.
