Trade Finance

Trade Finance (import finance, export finance, purchase order finance and supply chain finance) can be a cost effective way of funding your business and without the need of the owners to provide property security. 

For importers, trade finance typically works by the lender making the payments to your suppliers (domestic or international) and your business repaying these amounts within an agreed time (up to 180 days). These facilities can be structured to suit your business requirements.  

For exporters, there are a variety of funding options available that will depend upon the terms of trade and product being sold.

Interest rates on trade finance facilities can start around the 4% p.a range with bank lenders and from 6% p.a with non-bank lenders.
