Transaction Risk Management

Minimize your risk by considering export credit insurance, addressing foreign exchange risk, and avoiding potential payment problems from your buyer.
Export Credit Insurance
Protect your export sales against nonpayment, offer open account credit terms to your buyers, and increase cash flow with EXIM’s export credit insurance.
Foreign Exchange Risk
Reduce the risk associated with the uncertainty of future exchange rates. A good way is to quote prices and require payment in U.S. dollars.
Payment Problems
Problems involving bad debts with your international buyer can set you back. Avoid potential payment issues and tap key resources to limit risk and resolve problems.
