What is Trade Finance?

Stock finance is a facility which specialist lenders offer – it enables SMEs to buy inventory and ease working capital. Often, a trade financier will fund all of the cost of the goods, including charges (e.g. taxes).

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

If you’re a Birmingham based business who needs to pay an exporter upfront, a trade finance expert provides a Letter of Credit which ensures settlement upon transportation of the merchandise to the exporter through a financial institution in his or her home country. Trade finance enables small firms immediate access to export finance with minimal financial risk, as the security is guaranteed through the trade finance supplier which secures the finance against the goods themselves.
