International Open Account Trade Finance

Financing Open Account receivables is one thing; Financing Export (or Import) Receivables brings a new dimension. Cross-border factoring offers additional commercial value but also presents additional challenges in terms of legal, operational and credit risks. Different approaches and support systems exist, depending on the international complexity and risk appetite of the Financial institution. This WOA Lab is a centre of excellence and knowledge in this important area of cross border business.
