Trade Finance is the financing of goods or services in a trade or transaction, from a supplier through to the end buyer. The core principles of trade finance operate in much the same way as a merchant bank, the focus being the transaction rather than a business’s balance sheet.
Trade Finance accounts for 3% of all global trade, worth some $3tn annually. ‘Trade Finance’ is an umbrella term, which includes a variety of financial instruments that can be used by an importer or exporter.
