New measures on trade finance are also believed to have a serious effect on global trade. Karen Fawcett, head of transaction banking at Standard Chartered Bank, told a panel at Sibos that “we could see a 2% fall in global trade and a 0.5% fall in global GDP.” This mainly comes from the higher cost of doing trade finance which will arise with changes to the credit conversion factor, when banks will have to account for 100% of their trade assets on their balance sheets as opposed to 20% in the past. According to John Ahearn, the head of trade finance at Citi, pricing for trade finance will go up 40% to 60%.
