What is Trade Finance?

Export finance is a facility which expert lenders offer – it enables organisations to buy products and ease working capital. Generally, a trade financier will fund up to 100% of the cost of the products, including charges (e.g. fees).

Trade finance offers advantages over more traditional working capital finance such as short term loans, and invoice finance. Trade finance provides up front funding quickly without affecting existing bank relationships, without affecting the balance sheet.

If you’re a Bristol based firm who has to pay an exporter in advance, a trade finance specialist provides a Letter of Credit which ensures payment upon delivery of the merchandise to the exporter through a bank in his or her home country. Trade finance enables small business owners immediate access to export finance with very little risk, because the security is guaranteed through the trade finance supplier which secures the finance against the goods themselves.
