What is Trade Finance?

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

Trade finance offers benefits over more traditional working capital finance such as bank 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 Sheffield centred organisation who might want to pay an exporter in advance, a trade finance specialist provides a Letter of Credit which warranties settlement upon shipping of the goods to the exporter from a commercial bank in his or her home country. Trade finance enables small business owners quick access to export finance with minimal financial risk because the security is guaranteed through the trade finance supplier which secures the finance against the goods themselves.
