Trade Funding Services

Innovative Trade Funding Solutions For Import, Export And Trade Finance

Trade Funding Services Overview

We understand how important trade funding is to your business. That is not an empty platitude. We understand the importance because we listen to our clients and we listen to the markets, and both are sending loud signals. We know from the World Trade Organization (WTO) that between 80% to 90% of all global trade needs trade financing to take place. That is a stunning level of reliance on the financial sector, whose interests may not align with yours.

We also know that there is a severe shortage of available trade funding throughout the world. The shortage of available trade funding now exceeds $1.6 trillion US and it’s growing. The shortage of trade capital is starting to have an impact on global markets and a severe impact on small businesses.

To meet the growing demand and minimize the impact of the global shortage of trade funding we have developed a variety of trade funding services. Trade funding services we offer are designed to enhance your ability to trade globally, improve your cash flow and make your business more profitable.
