Trade Finance

With the global increase in fraudulent activity, regulators are applying pressure to trade finance businesses to do more – and to know more.
The FCA has reinforced its directive that it is the duty of transacting firms to comply with the expected levels of due diligence required for high risk customers.
Enhanced due diligence including counterparties, enables firms to take a Risk Based Approach (RBA), incorporating crucial non-financial risk (NFR) data into existing processes.
