Third Party Credit Risk

Mitigating the risk of supply chain failure

Third Party Credit Risk is about protecting strongly performing businesses from under-performance in their supply chain. This is especially pertinent now as supply chains worldwide are more vulnerable than ever, in light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19.

A changing marketplace

The uncertainty impacting the current economic climate is likely to see the supply chains of major SA businesses more exposed by the impact of corporate failure.

Take control

The potential damage to revenues caused by the failure of a key customer is no doubt something you have considered. You can insure against the failure of a customer, but have you fully considered the implications of losing a key supplier? During this critical time, suppliers can often fail due to strains on working capital.

Mitigate the consequences

It is vital to examine how you can monitor supply risk and implement strategies to mitigate the consequences.
