About the Webinar

Regulatory compliance continues to reshape how companies do business. It’s important for credit professionals to understand the effects of ever-tightening rules on trade finance, from know-your-customer issues to working with a shrinking trade finance banking community. Fred Dons, of Deutsche Bank, will discuss the additional checks banks must do within trade, how they affect company business and how credit managers can mitigate some of the negative effects to ensure their payments are processed as smoothly as possible.
