What is Trade Finance?

Trade finance is a facility which expert lenders offer – it enables companies to buy stock and ease working capital. Typically, a trade financier will fund up to 100% of the cost of the product, including charges (e.g. bank charges).

Trade finance offers upsides over more traditional working capital finance such as overdraft facilities, and invoice discounting. Trade finance provides quick funding quickly without affecting existing bank relationships, without affecting the balance sheet.

If you’re a Manchester based business who needs to pay an exporter in advance, a trade finance expert provides a Letter of Credit which warranties settlement upon transportation of the merchandise to the exporter from a bank in his or her home country. Trade finance enables firms quick access to trade finance with minimal risk, as the security is assured through the trade finance provider which secures finance against the goods themselves.
