About the Webinar

International embargoes and measures developed to combat terrorist financing, nuclear proliferation and money laundering affect international trade. In this series of webinars, Fred Dons, director of Deutsche Bank, will cover what credit professionals need to know to stay on top of the fast-changing regulatory landscape and keep their company—and bottom line—protected.

Keeping pace with export compliance requirements is an ongoing and time consuming challenge; regulations and restricted or denied party lists constantly change as do export documentation rules and formats in every country. Corporate compliance is a critical aspect of credit management, and the failure to strictly comply with rules and regulations leads to major difficulties in collecting accounts receivable, which increase DSO and place a strain on working capital. Credit departments must have the knowledge and tools to successfully navigate the choppy international waters of export compliance. Each session will include an in-depth case study.
