DEFINITION of ‘Trade Finance’
The financing of international trade. Trade finance includes such activities as lending, issuing letters of credit, factoring, export credit and insurance. Companies involved with trade finance include importers and exporters, banks and financiers, insurers and export credit agencies, as well as other service providers. Trade finance is of vital importance to the global economy, with the World Trade Organization estimating that 80 to 90% of global trade is reliant on this method of financing.

BREAKING DOWN ‘Trade Finance’
Although international trade has been in existence for centuries, trade finance developed as a means of facilitating it further. The widespread use of trade finance is one of the factors that have contributed to the enormous growth of international trade in recent decades.

In its simplest form, trade form works by reconciling the divergent needs of an exporter and importer. While an exporter would prefer to be paid upfront by the importer for an export shipment, the risk to the importer is that the exporter may simply pocket the payment and refuse shipment. Conversely, if the exporter extends credit to the importer, the latter may refuse to make payment or delay it inordinately. The most common solution to this problem is through a letter of credit, which is opened in the exporter’s name by the importer through a bank in his or her home country. The letter of credit essentially guarantees payment to the exporter by the bank issuing the letter of credit upon receipt of documentary proof that the goods have been shipped. Although this is a somewhat cumbersome process, the letter of credit system is one of the most popular trade finance mechanisms.

Global Trade Funding is a capital consulting company that assists our clients in procuring methods of raising capital to fund various types of commercial projects. Our process allows us to use the various funding mechanisms of our funding partners to devise comprehensive and viable funding models for our clients that mitigate risk, accommodate our clients’ capital requirements, and ensure compatibility with the known requirements, capabilities, and guidelines of our funding partners.

We provide financial analysis and underwriting to structure our clients’ capital requirements to conform to current market realities then custom-design funding solutions that meet those requirements based on our deep understanding of our funding partners’ capabilities and guidelines. We utilize a combination of funding mechanisms to devise a comprehensive funding model including debt financing, equity financing, bond financing, and capital procurement, that when properly combined are usually able to fully fund a commercial project with many added benefits not typically available through traditional and conventional methods.

Our clients typically require capital to fund projects ranging from real estate acquisition and development, business expansion and M&A, technology development, and working capital. Often we introduce additional components to a project or capital requirement such as green energy, new technology, or strategic business partnerships, that enhance the viability of the project, create additional value, and mitigate risk to all involved parties.

Global Trade Funding’s select network of funding partners includes conventional sources such as banks and pension funds, private sources such as hedge funds, private equity groups, and private trusts, and alternative sources such as international programs and platforms. We do not weaken the integrity of a project by “shopping it around” searching for funding. Should we not be able to devise a viable funding model for a client using our current funding mechanisms, we will respectfully pass on the funding request.

Global Trade Funding is not a bank nor a ‘hard money’ lender. Global Trade Funding is not a bankruptcy bailout nor foreclosure prevention shop. A project, or sponsor, that is facing imminent foreclosure, or that desperately needs immediate financing, is not stable enough to qualify for our funding mechanisms. Global Trade Funding is a company dedicated to procuring new and alternative methods of comprehensive funding for sponsors of various types of commercial projects that have the resources, flexibility, vision, and time to accomplish the goals of the project correctly and completely in this new market.
