Less stress. More purchase power. There’s no pressure of how you’re going to pay a supplier – we do that on your behalf. Having to juggle your cashflow isn’t an issue. Late payments no longer a concern. Instead, Trade Finance gives you increased buying power: Bulk-buying at a reduced cost; early payment discounts from your suppliers; preferential rates because you’re always reliable. The result? Increased profit margins with the added bonus of giving you a ‘good name’ in your industry.
Trade Finance is repaid as the goods are sold. The quicker you sell the goods, the quicker and more cost effective your repayments will be. To find out more, please get in touch and one of our advisors will be happy to help.
