Welcome to Global Trade Funding

Innovative trade funding services that deliver measurable results worldwide

Global Trade Funding is an global financier who is inexorably committed to providing the best client advisory and trade finance services available anywhere in the world. In furtherance of that objective, the firm exclusively focuses on providing international trade financing, import financing and export financing to emerging markets in every corner of the globe. In fact, we provide trade funding and client advisory services in more than 120 countries around the world.

Although leaders of the global financial sector boast about gathering and sharing vast amounts of broad market data and economic research, which is integral to their core mission, published data on global trade flows from the World Trade Organization, the World Bank and Export-Import banks around the world aren’t always transparent or objective. This is largely due to political agendas.

Nonetheless, the Global Trade Funding client advisory group intrinsically monitors and analyzes all available global research data to ensure our clients receive complete, accurate and timely information that is not influenced by political bias. We believe that informed clients make better decisions and, as a result, they do more profitable import, export and trade deals, which is a goal we share with our clients.

As the research ultimately proved, the 2008 global financial downturn significantly impacted the volume of global trade, a condition that still persists today.The resulting decline in global trade that continues today did not occur because of a diminution in the demand for trade goods, but because of a decline in available trade financing[/modal-link]. A condition that also still persists today.

Trade finance is vitally important to the global economy, and the World Trade Organization recently estimated that more than 80% of international trade transactions depend on trade financing. Global Trade Funding makes sure our clients don’t lose deals due to a lack of market financing.

Our unwavering commitment to being better informed than the rest of the world has largely insulated our clients from the potentially crippling effects of reduced global trade finance liquidity. Global Trade Funding remains positioned to provide our clients with the volume of trade finance they need, along with a wide range of increasingly innovative and cost effective trade funding alternatives.

Everybody wants to talk about financing. When we start a new deal, we develop structure first, before even looking at financing. Structure is how the deal will operate and structure protects the client. When we know how the deal is built, then we’ll finance it. But we always protect the client first »

Worldwide Shortage of Trade Finance Pressuring Small Businesses

The worldwide shortage of trade finance, which has now reached $1.6 trillion, is disproportionately pressuring small businesses according to a brief by the Asian Development BankSmall businesses face the greatest challenges in trade finance, with 57% of small business trade finance requests being rejected, compared to only 10% for multinational companies. High small businesses rejection rates lead to expensive informal financing.

The brief, which analyzes the trade finance shortage, indicates 90% of banks cite the complexity of new compliance requirements as the leading cause of the shortage of capital. New international banking regulations, which set lender liquidity requirements, was cited by 77% of banks as a major barrier to trade finance. In addition to rejection of new compliance requirements, many banks are pulling back from global markets to focus on domestic customers as they face domestic political pressure.
