Supply chains and trade credit are critical in a post-COVID world. Trade volumes are likely to fluctuate, reflecting the collision of pent-up consumer demand with widespread goods and labour shortages, supply bottlenecks and uncertainty about further COVID variants. Disruption is the new status quo. Advances in technology are helping to create more flexible supply chains but there is a long way to go to repair the damage from COVID.
Growing pressure to understand end-to-end supply chain credit risk leaves SMEs at a disadvantage when it comes to accessing credit. There is growing evidence that more transparent, widely available credit data benefits the global economy. A new whitepaper from Credit Benchmark demonstrates how consensus credit data is part of the solution. With coverage on 30,000+ corporates, financials and sovereigns, the dataset helps fill the gap between the need for flexible, robust global supply chains and the need to minimize payables and receivables risk arising from supply chain volatility.
For CFOs, Group Treasurers, Procurement Managers, and participants in the trade finance sector, the whitepaper highlights the value of credit consensus ratings in assessing current and future counterpart credit risks.
Download the whitepaper below for credit risk insights across sovereigns, global corporates, financials, industrials, travel and leisure, oil and gas, metals and mining, automobiles and parts, forestry and paper, hotels and airlines, and REITs.
Also included in the whitepaper are consensus analytics that provide trade finance and supply chain professionals with an overview of counterparty credit risks, available across bespoke lists of counterparties: trading partners, buyers, sellers, banks, non-bank intermediaries, and various subsidiaries of these.
