32nd Annual IMB Trading Course on Pitfalls and Remedies in International Trade
October 1st 2017
In today’s world international trading can be risky, with small margins in a highly competitive market place. To survive, one cannot always do business with first class companies and risks have to be taken. Timely information and knowledge of ‘soft’ spots in the shipping and trading system are vital.
The IMB Annual Trading Course aims to fill this void by identifying the risks and highlighting the available measures to prevent, reduce or, if necessary, remedy problems. Topics covered in the course include:
- Fraud in the financing of international trade;
- Bills of lading frauds;
- Financial crime in trade finance;
- Charter party failure and fraud;
- Container security, maritime piracy and cargo insurance frauds;
- International litigation and recovery of assets;
- Risk management, the fraudster’s perspective and corruption in international trade.
This fully residential course is now in its 32nd successive year and highly practical and participative. The presentations include a number of case studies based on actual cases handled by the IMB. The course concludes with the Trading Game whereby delegates test their trading and negotiating skills in a series of transactions fraught with difficulty.
The course is of interest to senior / middle managers in trading houses, banks, shipping and insurance companies. Places for this annual event are limited and early registration is recommended in order to avoid disappointment. Companies who have previously sent delegates are listed in the attached brochure. A registration form is also included in the brochure.
The course fees are GBP 2,900 and cover all tuition, documentation, accommodation, meals and local transport to and from London Heathrow.
