About this book

The Trade and Receivables Finance Companion: A Collection of Case Studies and Solutions is based on the author’s personal experience gained through more than 40 years in the field of trade finance. This Companion applies the techniques described in his first volume, Trade and Receivables Finance: A Practical Guide to Risk Evaluation and Structuring to an extensive range of international trade scenarios. Practical solutions are discussed and presented through a specially selected collection of more than 20 case studies. 
These books provide an unrivalled and highly practical set of manuals for the trade and receivables financier.
The reader is taken on a journey from the structuring of trade products including collections, import and export letters of credit, back to back credits, guarantees and standby credits to fully and partially structured financing solutions for the importer, manufacturer, distributor, middle-party and exporter. Each funding technique provides a compelling alternative to an overdraft.
The case studies include the risk assessment and financing of open account payables, stock and receivables transactions and the evaluation and use of credit insurance as a supporting tool. The structuring of commodity finance across the trade cycle, to include warehousing, and call-off is also described. 
Many of the chapters contain a summary ‘keynote’ overview and comprehensive ‘deal sheet’ extracts of the chosen solution detailing facility and operational requirements.

During his term of office Stephen formulated the trade finance credit risk policy and operational manual for the financier and headed up its credit risk committee. Stephen continues to work as a practitioner, consultant trade advisor, handles letters of credit for his corporate clients, structures their trade and working capital finance requirements and facilitates trade finance market solutions.  As a recognised leading expert on the subject of trade and receivables finance, Stephen regularly designs and delivers training programmes to banks globally on trade finance to include sales, credit risk, operations and anti-money laundering and sanctions compliance.
