Looking for funding to startup overseas?

Does your business need finance to trade internationally?

Trade finance is an umbrella term used for the financing of trade and goods domestically or internationally. If your company has cashflow gaps between the time of agreeing a purchase and getting paid by end debtors or customers, trade finance could help bridge the finance gap.

As an example, if your company is a car traders which requires the importing of cars or vehicles from Taiwan every month, a trade finance facility could be used to purchase the stock at an agreed price, and once it arrives in the UK, an invoice finance facility can be used when selling the cars on to other traders or end customers. The funders generally take on the risks of late or no payment, as well as currency fluctuations, and defects with goods. The costs associated would be baked into interest rate and fees, but the buyer transfers risks over to the funder and doesn’t require payment of the goods upfront.

Trade finance includes Letters of Credit, which is essentially a financial instrument used to help fund the importing or exporting of goods between buyers or sellers, guaranteeing payment to the seller on certain terms.

Invoice finance is also a common tool used by SMEs who have confirmed 30-90 day payments from suppliers. Funders typically ‘purchase’ invoices up front from SMEs at a slightly discounted price (their payment) and will receive the full funds once the invoice is paid. 

Often SMEs might look to hedge their funds or have forward options in place to mitigate currency risk or currency volatility, particularly when trading in other currencies.

If your business trades abroad, Trade Finance Global has a network of expert funders in structured debt and trade finance, partners, and specialists in different niches and geographies to assist with the financing of goods or services to help bridge funding gaps and resolve cashflow problems.
