Trade Strategy – powered by MultiLateral
Trade has become strategic. The superpowers are using trade as a means of coercion and it is no longer a simple, benign instrument fuelling economic growth. It has become the visible mechanism through which the struggle for technological, financial and economic power is playing out. Covid 19 will accentuate these patterns because countries have retreated into protectionism and nationalism.
This has consequences for banks and businesses alike. Compliance functions are more complex and change in tandem with the ever-changing global politics of trade. Financial fraud and corruption are more difficult to identify and are often hidden within the trade data and flows themselves.
MultiLateral technology integrates trade data, economic data and political risk data to allow our users to:
- Model political risks against trade opportunities
- Run What If scenarios
- Connect supply chains
- Identify dual use goods flows
