Stock finance is a revolving facility which alternative financiers offer – it enables organizations to buy stock supplies and can help reduce the pressure from cash management.
Generally, an alternative financier will fund all of the cost of the goods, including charges (e.g. bank charges).
Trade finance offers upsides over more traditional bank finance such as asset finance or loans. Trade finance provides quick funding without affecting existing bank relationships.
How does it work?
If you’re an SME importing or exporting goods internationally, then a trade finance facility would allow you to fund this through offering a letter of credit or some form of cash advance.
I’m looking to import from Italy, how can Trade Finance Global help, and how does it work?
If you’re looking to import products from other international markets, you may need import finance, which is an agreement between yourself (the importer) and the foreign exporter. An alternative finance bank would act as the intermediary, paying the foreign exporter on your behalf until you get the products and have then sold them to your end debtor. Repaying the lender then occurs over an agreed period.
