How the transaction works

When a business wants to trade internationally, the exporter would typically want to be paid up front by the importer. The bank would issue a Letter of Credit, which guarantees this payment to the exporter upon receipt of documentary proof that the goods have been shipped. This is then repaid once the importer has paid for the goods, which could be anything between 30-180 days later

Textiles Case Study

Yorkshire Clothing Manufacturer

Financing was needed by a family owned company which imports high value textiles, including clothing, from Asia. The company sells predominantly in the UK, France and Italy. The most difficult element facing the company’s expansion was access to capital that widely varied throughout the yearly cycle. By working with trade finance providers it has allowed the company to work with more seasonal and varied clients.
