In its simplest form trade finance can fund a business’s supply chain when a traditional bank cannot. We take true risk through purchasing goods on the back of a purchase order without using the client’s balance sheet as security, unlike banks.

Trade finance is often used for bringing finished goods into Europe that ultimately end up on the shelves of high street retailers. These can be clothing, home wares, giftware, electrical items, and in fact pretty much any item so long as they are finished goods.

Trade finance also works just as well for goods being exported out of the UK where traditionally UK businesses have been good at winning overseas contracts. Such contracts are well suited to trade finance as the customer is, in many cases, an entity utilising bank guaranteed instruments such as letters of credit.
