About the Webinar

When doing business with companies or individuals in other companies, it is important to assess both country and customer risk. From a risk perspective, a rogue customer in a good country is not a much better risk than a good customer in a rogue country.

Join Professor Roberto Bergami as he outlines best practices and other factors credit professionals should consider when assessing risk for both customers and the countries in which they reside.
