TRADE FINANCE has become an important tool for companies to improve their efficiency and increase revenue.


Reduces risk

TRADE FINANCE helps importers and exporters to build trust and reduces the risk associated with global trade, reconciling the different needs of exporters and importers. Ideally, an exporter would prefer the importer to pay in advance for an export shipment to avoid the risk of payment by the importer. However, if the importer pays the exporter in advance, he runs the risk of not receiving the goods.


The common solution for this case is for the importer's bank to provide a letter of credit to the exporter's bank. The letter of credit guarantees that, once the issuing bank receives proof that the exporter has sent the goods and the terms of the contract have been fulfilled, it will issue payment to the exporter.


Improves cash flow and operations efficiency

TRADE FINANCE helps companies obtain financing to facilitate business. It allows companies to receive a cash payment based on accounts receivable in the case of forward transactions. As a result, cash flow is improved, since the buyer has means to guarantee receipt and the importer knows that the goods will be sent.


With this, TRADE FINANCE guarantees less delays in payments and remittances, allowing importers and exporters to manage their business and plan their cash flow more efficiently.


Higher revenue and earnings

TRADE FINANCE allows companies to increase their business and revenue through foreign trade. For example, a company that can make a sale with an overseas company may not be able to produce the goods needed for the order.


However, through TRADE FINANCE, the exporter can place the order. As a result, the company gets new business that it might not have had without the creative financial solutions provided by TRADE FINANCE.


Reduce the risk of financial difficulties

Without TRADE FINANCE, a company may not be able to pay and lose an important customer or supplier with immediate and long-term implications for the company. Having options such as revolving credit facilities and accounts receivable billing can not only help companies to carry out international transactions, but also help them in times of financial difficulties.
