DS-Concept, a trade finance provider headquartered in Germany, has changed its name to Tradewind. Additionally, the privately-owned group will expand its offerings to include inventory, asset-based lending (ABL) and structured trade facilities, and will also look to improve its supply chain finance programmes.

According to Tradewind, the rebrand reflects its international operations: providing liquidity for cross-border transactions through its network of more than 20 offices in 13 countries. Over the past year Tradewind has opened offices in Iceland, India and Peru, and seeks to expand further into Latin America in 2018.

The company says it remains committed to tailoring deal structures for its customers, including larger-scale financing.
