Welcome to TradeFinance.training

A new era is emerging in the world of Trade Finance. Technology continues to transform the environment and reduce the need for paper. In such a world it is important to implement innovative training solutions.

Gary Collyer (ex-HSBC / Citibank / ABN Amro) and David Meynell (ex-Deutsche Bank) have joined forces in order to bring to market an online training solution for all aspects of trade finance. Between us we have over 70 years of knowledge and experience in the trade finance field and this has been applied in the development of a complete suite of trade finance modules.

Trade finance modules include all aspects of the processes and practices in relation to the traditional trade finance products i.e., Letters of Credit, Standby Letters of Credit, Guarantees and Documentary Collections.

There are also modules covering the processes and practices for topics such as Bank Payment Obligation, Supply Chain Financing and modules to support industry examinations such as CDCS and CITF. There is also a module covering Financial Crime, Fraud and Sanctions.

For corporate and logistics companies, there is a module covering the preparation of documents under the type of transactions described above, assessing the workability of letters of credit, guarantees and standby's, as well as how to complete the respective application forms when acting as applicant or preparing a draft text for issuance by a bank.

The training experience includes an online presentation of the subject matter, supporting reading material (PDF files that may be downloaded) and individual assessments. In addition, we offer each student the ability to raise with us any questions on the subject matter for a period commencing on the date of the first access to the training and concluding three months after completion of the assessment.
