Agency Lenders – Both Sides Now

Side 2 –The Trouble with Agencies

The second part of this two-part series now examines the negative aspects of working with agency lenders or agencies. ‘Agency lender’ is a name given to a group of publicly-controlled or officially-affiliated lenders.

    Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful remarks. I agree with your assessment about the need for greater knowledge about international trade and trade finance. Let's hope there is hope for Harry and us.

    Excellent analysis. I particularly liked "politicians - responsible for the microscope are often not well informed and sometimes have poor intentions." This phrase alone is worthy of a diplomatic award. I also appreciate the subtlety, knowledge and nuance which informed "There is no substitute for detailed and specific knowledge of agency processes and substantial deal and market experience, which are the keys..." The greatest challenge is to tackle the general lack of knowledge in international trade and trade finance in American society. This is surely what killed Harry.
