Why trade finance?
Trade finance can help bridge the funding gap between paying your suppliers and receiving customer payments. We finance the payments that you make to your UK or overseas suppliers on your behalf, reducing the stress on your cash flow and allowing you to focus on growing your order book.
How does trade finance work?
Borrow between 0.5m and 10m* in USD/EUR. An upfront fee of 0.3% may apply.
An interest rate of 7% - 15% p.a., dependent on currency and risk profile.
