What is Trade Finance?

Stock finance is a facility which specialist lenders offer – it enables SMEs to buy inventory and ease cash flow. Generally, a trade financier will fund up to 100% of the cost of the products, including charges (e.g. bank charges).

Trade finance offers upsides over more traditional working capital finance such as overdrafts, and invoice finance. Trade finance provides up-front funding quickly without affecting existing bank relationships, without affecting the balance sheet.

If you’re a Liverpool based firm who has to pay an exporter upfront, a trade finance specialist provides a Letter of Credit which assures settlement upon delivery of the merchandise to the exporter through a commercial lender in his or her home country. Trade finance enables companies quick access to trade finance with minimal financial risk because the security is guaranteed through the trade finance supplier which secures finance against the goods themselves.
