Zoom in from anywhere on August 13th... at 8am PT / 10am CT / 11am US ET / 4pm London

Demand for credit was growing in the U.S. and around the world even before the coronavirus outbreak. Now you’re facing even greater challenges.

How much credit should you extend to your customers? What terms should you offer? When will you get paid? Where will you find working capital? Can you still obtain credit insurance? How much will it cost? Will it cover coronavirus risks?

This presentation will discuss credit demand today and what you can do to manage it.

  • Why trade debtors need and want longer payment terms
  • Credit conditions in the USA and in key overseas markets
  • How to evaluate debtor creditworthiness in this environment
  • Recognizing/managing accounts receivable nonpayment risks
  • Don’t allow coronavirus excuses to mask other credit problems

In addition...

- How the credit insurance market is adapting to the new risks.

- Best practices for obtaining and using credit insurance now.

Join us to learn more! 8am PT / 4pm London on the 13th.
