Lender Involvement Benefits
With most trade finance agreements, the lenders are closely involved in the process. This is because whatever is being traded is ultimately financed through the lender’s funds. Due to their control over the financial elements of a trade finance agreement, they’ll help keep a close eye on the overall trade cycle. With this added involvement, a lot of businesses benefit from enhanced security and fewer bad debts.

Key Uses For Trade Finance Include:
Grow Your Business Faster
With more workstreams as a result of better working capital, trade finance can be a fantastic solution to growing a business more quickly. By having the cash to work with upfront, you can take on and fulfil bigger orders. Trade finance can also help you buy raw materials in bulk, meaning you’ll have better economies of scale, which can lead to higher profit margins.
Improve Your Cashflow
You must keep a very watchful eye on your cashflow when you have multiple, costly, stages in your process. This includes things like buying raw materials, manufacturing goods, shipping etc. Add in to the mix potentially long payment terms, to maintain a competitive edge within your chosen market, and cashflow problems can creep up on firms very quickly. Trade finance is an excellent way of solving these headaches to keep your business on the front foot.
