We provide trade risk solutions that aim to mitigate trade risk and give your business assurance and protection when importing and exporting.

There are a number of trade risks involved in import and export transactions

  • Payment risk - that contracted payments are not received by the buyer or their bank
  • Delivery risk - that the buyer does not obtain delivery of the goods after making payment to the seller
  • Performance risk - that either the buyer or seller in a contract may not perform according to their agreed undertakings
  • Foreign exchange risk - relating to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates (see our dedicated foreign exchange section).

ANZ's trade risk management solutions are used where one party to a transaction wants a financial 'guarantee' to support that transaction or a series of transactions. This provides confidence that contractual obligations will be honoured.

  • Bank guarantees
  • Standby letters of credit
  • Documentary credits
  • Bid bonds
  • Performance bonds.

Any customer with a commercial contract expressed in foreign currency is exposed to foreign exchange risk and can benefit from ANZ solutions.

  • foreign currency accounts
  • foreign exchange contracts
  • foreign currency options.
