Financial Poise Webinar: Trade Finance Basics

October 02, 2020

In an increasingly interconnected cross-border business environment, companies buying and selling goods and services (and their advisors) must have a good understanding of trade finance.

Phil Buffington joins a Financial Poise webinar, "Trade Finance Basics," delivered through West LegalEdcenter, on how trade finance effectively helps importers and exporters manage working capital solutions and reduce costs.

The October 7 webinar explains the basics of letters of credit, open account, supply chain, and documentary collections, how and why they are used, how much they cost, and the benefits and risks. Phil and fellow panelists will discuss how financial institutions facilitate these funding options and explains why trade finance is a natural fit for blockchain technology.
