What is Trade Finance?

Trade finance is a facility which specialist lenders offer – it enables businesses to buy products and ease cash flow. Often, a trade financier will fund all of the cost of the products, including charges (e.g. insurance costs).

Trade finance offers benefits over more traditional bank finance such as mortgages, and invoice finance. Trade finance provides quick funding quickly without affecting existing bank relationships, without affecting the balance sheet.

If you’re a Leeds based business who has to pay an exporter upfront, a trade finance professional provides a Letter of Credit which assures settlement upon delivery of the items to the exporter from a commercial bank in his or her home country. Trade finance enables small business owners fast access to stock finance with little or no risk, as the security is assured through the trade finance supplier which secures the finance against the goods themselves.
