Due to the escalating political risks observed in recent years, which have multifaceted impacts on trading operations, companies are deploying greater efforts to identify, manage, and mitigate these risks.


Wars, policies, quotas, all these events have a potential to disrupt, and approaching and anticipating political risk in the most efficient way can not only protect the companies and their interests but also be a competitive advantage.


This webinar will gather leaders from across the agri commodity trading sector to provide a deep dive into some of the most pressing challenges facing the industry when it comes to counterparty risk, including a status report on the situation in the US and world-wide, best practices around Know Your Customer procedures, innovation and risk management system developments, and more.


Designed for risk professionals, heads of trading as well as IT support professionals, this session will help you shape your own approach to credit risk, in alignment with your business objectives and the overall risk management strategy.

  • How the current credit situation compares to 2008
  • How the global political situation is affecting credit worthiness
  • How to overcome challenges around refinancing with high interest rates
