International Trade Finance


The main objective of this Learning Unit is to familiarize the student with various methods of finance both for exports and imports.

Learning Unit Summary

There are two basic forms of finance of international trade transactions: import finance and export finance. Both can be performed in the currency of the exporter (for example, Euros) or in any other fully convertible currency agreed by both parties.

In the second case the company assumes certain risks as to the difference in exchange rates, however, it can also profit from trading in another currency if there is a rise in the value of the foreign currency. Financial transactions in international trade can be performed in the currency of the exporter, in the currency of the importer or in a third currency.
