This title was first published in 2001. This volume covers all aspects of export credit management as well as the management of overseas subsidiary companies' credit operations through a series of inter-linked chapters written by 25 experts in the international field. This third edition has been completely revised and, in substantial parts, re-written to reflect the development and availability of the modern tools now at the disposal of the international credit manager, especially in the area of information technology. New chapters have been added on bank risk and international bankruptcy law to respond to the growing interest in these areas. The objectives of the handbook are to provide a complete operating guide and training reference for the application of the financial and control techniques necessary for international credit management and to describe the tools available for all the processes from initial policy-making through to final collection of trade debts.
