What is Trade Finance?

Trade finance is a facility which specialist lenders offer – it enables companies to buy supply and ease working capital. Typically, a trade financier will fund all of the cost of the goods, including charges (e.g. insurance costs).

Trade finance offers advantages over more traditional working capital finance such as 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 Bradford centred business who would need to pay an exporter upfront, a trade finance expert provides a Letter of Credit which assures payment upon shipping of the items to the exporter through a commercial lender in his or her home country. Trade finance enables businesses and organisations immediate access to trade finance with hardly any risk, as the security is guaranteed through the trade finance supplier which secures the finance against the goods themselves.
