Business Cash Flow
Trade finance is a broad term for financing the importing and exporting goods. Trade financing typically involves credit insurance, factoring or bank guarantees.
Trade finance is an important form of financing for small and medium-sized businesses. According to the World Trade Organization an estimated 80% to 90% of global trade is reliant upon trade finance. It is so commonplace because it reduces the risk of international transactions for both the exporter and the importer.
Exporters often require payment in advance for goods that are being shipped, while importers would prefer to pay after the goods have safely arrived. The various forms of trade finance provide solutions for both parties.
Trade finance also closes the cash flow gap between purchasing and selling goods, smoothing out the ebb and flow of receivables and payables, making it easier for companies to grow internationally.
Another benefit of trade finance is that the financial companies involved can often help improve the communication between the buyer and seller, who are frequently separated not only by distance but by language barriers and time zones.
Through trade finance you are able to:
- Take on international opportunities
- Grow your business
- Avoid the administrative headache of chasing international invoices
- Navigate the logistics and paperwork of importing/exporting
