TFG’s Trade Tech Platform

We provide lenders with a fintech platform through which they can access new-to-bank borrowers in trade and receivables finance. We effectively act an extension of their origination channel, by matching the lender risk criteria to several hundred data points and presenting them with appropriate business relationships. This allows the lender to expand its lending operations, without upfront investment or additional hiring.

Our serverless microservices are hosted on the AWS cloud platform utilising PostgreSQL, S3 Buckets, Lambda and DynamoDB in the back-end.

We are developing an analytics platform leveraging machine learning tools to drive insights in the international trade space.

TFG Onboarding Process

Each lender completes a mapping process in collaboration with TFG, which includes a breakdown of key risk factors.

TFG works to originate clients for panel lenders (liquidity providers) which match their risk criteria, sectors, jurisdictions and structures. There is no obligation or cost in relation to any introduced client and it is at the sole discretion of the lender whether they onboard any introduced potential client.

TFG aims to filter companies and facility requests in line with the criteria set by their liquidity providers. This is refined over time, as TFG’s systems develop and criteria are more tightly defined. Lender appetite is reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Account Management and Client Lead Pipeline

A dedicated account manager in TFG’s trade team will assist with client communications before onboarding with the relevant lender(s). This frictionless process allows lenders to offer finance to new target clients, through their original documents and existing structures.

Our lead nurturing and pipeline management systems / processes are constantly updated, and can provide deeper market insights to our panel of lenders, on an anonymised basis.
