Worldwide Shortage of Trade Finance Hurts Small Business

There is a worldwide shortage of trade finance which has now reached an astonishing $1.6 trillion. It will come as no surprise that this shortfall in trade funding liquidity is not affecting all businesses equally. Small business is being disproportionately hurt, according to a study by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) face the toughest challenges in trade finance under the best conditions. Now, with a $1.6 trillion shortage of available trade financing many small and medium-sized businesses are struggling to survive.

The ADB study, which analyzes the cause of the trade finance shortage, indicates that 90% of banks have reduced their capital in the market because of the complexity and expense of new trade finance due diligence requirements and 77% cite new international banking regulations that increased lender liquidity requirements. Thus it is clear that growing government regulations are causing the worldwide shortage of capital.

In addition to new regulatory requirements, many banks also indicate that rising domestic political pressure is forcing them to pull back from global markets in order to focus on domestic customers. Regardless of the cause, the impact on small business has been severe with 57% of small business trade finance applications being rejected. Compare that to only 10% rejection for larger companies.

That means more than half of small businesses cannot finance their deals. This small business rejection rate is astronomical, unacceptable, and is forcing many smaller companies to seek alternate forms of trade financing, which is both expensive and risky.

Global Trade Funding has successfully navigated the complex trade financing sector and remains positioned to deliver trade financing with a wide range of increasingly innovative and cost effective trade funding solutions.

If you are a small- to medium-sized business that is having difficulty securing trade financing, we can help. Even if you have been rejected by other banks and financiers, we can provide the financing you need. Send us a Trade Funding Request now to get started.

Commitment To Knowledge And Research

A key element of success in this business is having access to a world of information coupled with the ability to analyze the information to make well informed decisions. Much of the responsibility to accumulate and disseminate global economic, demographic, financial and trade information is the responsibility of the publicly supported international central banks like the World Bank and WTO.

Of late, much of the data they publish on global trade flows doesn’t seem transparent or objective because their charter seems to have been refocused on climate change and sustainable development due to political agendas.

Because this research material is essential to international trade and because well informed clients make better decisions, our team continuously monitors and analyzes all available global research data to ensure our clients have access to complete, accurate and timely information. Our unwavering commitment is this regard has insured that our clients do more and more profitable deals; a goal we most closely share with our clients.

We are aggressively expanding our research library because it is essential that both we and our clients understand global market conditions. We knew, for example, that the 2008 global financial meltdown impacted the volume of global trade.

The resulting decline in trade continues to this day. Ultimately the data indicated the decline in trade was not due to decreased demand, as was widely feared, but rather to an extreme, persistent shortage of available trade financing. That shortage has now grown to $1.6 trillion US dollars and could be as devastating to the world economy as it already has been to small businesses everywhere.

There is no doubt that trade finance is vitally important to the global economy. A WTO study recently concluded that more than 80% of international trade depends on trade financing. We agree.

Our unwavering commitment to being better informed than the rest of the world, insulated our clients from the crippling shortage of trade financing. Global Trade Funding remains positioned to deliver the volume of trade financing our clients need, along with increasingly innovative trade funding solutions.

Trade Finance Due Diligence

For many years companies have used trade finance instruments in order to manage risks when exporting and importing goods internationally. Trade finance ensures that cross-border business is protected against late payments, delayed delivery, geopolitical instability, currency fluctuations and other known and unknown risk factors. Given continuing risks to trade caused by, for example, turmoil in the Ukraine, the eurozone crisis, and tensions in the Middle East and South America, compliance in trade finance due diligence is a must for multinational corporations (MNCs). But today, being prudent is about more than just managing operational and market risks – it’s about compliance. Compliance in trade finance due diligence relates to:

  • Know your customer (KYC): Verifying counterparties (corporations and banks) as part of “know your customer” regulations.
  • International sanctions: Ensuring that all parties to a transaction undergo a “sanction screening”, using complex matching algorithms against official sanction lists, including the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the European Union (EU), and the United Nations (UN).
  • Anti-money-laundering (AML) and Counterterrorist financing (CTF): Detecting and preventing money laundering and terrorist financing by using “red flags” and IT supported behavioural profiling techniques, and reporting suspicious activities to the authorities.
  • Dual Use Goods: Preventing that the transaction include non-proliferation, weapons of mass destruction and dual use goods (including software, technology, documents and diagrams) which can be used for civil and military purpose by using “red flags” and IT supported screening methods, and reporting suspicious activities to the authorities.
