What is Trade Finance?

Trading internationally can be risky business, with further distance for goods to travel, longer credit terms to contend with and negotiations with customers and suppliers in often unfamiliar markets.

Trade finance companies can provide both exporters and importers with financial support and guidance to help make the process as straightforward as possible, keeping cash flowing and providing security to safeguard your business.

If you’re based in the UK and you trade with other businesses both internationally and domestically, trade finance could help you buy stock or ship products more quickly and with less risk. 

As an independent commercial finance broker with vast experience in securing the most suitable trade finance facilities for importers and exporters, we can identify the right UK based facility and lender for your business too. Call 0800 9774833 or request a call back to speak to our specialists.

Whether you’re importing raw materials or exporting finished goods, there are a number of different trade finance products to cater for a wide range of requirements.

From releasing cash against invoices to cover the cash flow gap to obtaining a bank guarantee that gives both parties peace of mind, it can be extremely useful for businesses who trade internationally to assess the different options available.
