Trade Finance

From traditional trade products to bespoke finance solutions we can assist your import and export activity and help maximise your international and domestic trading potential while improving cashflow.

Is it right for you?

Trading overseas can be profitable, but it also involves risk. Exporters must ensure they are paid for the goods they provide and importers must receive the goods they have paid for. We can offer a range of Trade Finance solutions to help you manage risks, negotiate credit terms, win business and trade confidently.

  • You can benefit from the expertise of our experienced Trade specialists based in the UK and overseas
  • We understand the importance of Trade Finance in both reducing pressure on your cashflow and in enhancing your ability to trade globally or domestically. Our products can help achieve both these aims

How it supports your business

  • Enables you to quickly receive payments for your exports or make payments for your imports
  • Offers you the ability to potentially enhance your negotiating position with your trading partner
  • The funding period can be based on your individual trading needs
