Receivables After the Crisis: Asia's CFOs & Elevated Risk

This CFO Innovation survey, sponsored by Atradius, analyses how companies are dealing with trade issues after the crisis and what lasting impact it has had on their business.

 

Key Findings:

  • On the face of it, late payments or outright defaults appear to be a manageable problem in Asia.
  • But a large majority of respondents say their company has been experiencing delayed payments.
  • Little wonder that many companies remain worried despite the apparent end of the global financial crisis.
  • To protect themselves, enterprises in Asia are reducing their exposure to customers they judge to be less creditworthy.
  • The low usage of trade credit insurance may be due to limited knowledge about this product.
  • Going forward, companies in Asia will focus on requiring advance payment to mitigate payment risk.
