Commodity Finance (“CF”) is a financing solution focused on the provision of short-term trade related working capital.
Each CF deal is tailor made based on the nature of the customer’s inventory and their trade terms between the counterparties along with the regulatory and legal requirements of the jurisdictions involved.
CF facilities can be applied across the entire supply/value chain of a business or focused on financing specific inventory assets.
- Financing is matched to the underlying current assets (i.e. inventory and receivables) of the business which provides comfort that sufficient liquidity will be available throughout the operating cycle of a business. This is particularly important in industries that have seasonal funding requirements and/or can experience material input price movements within their operations.
- CF products can provide a lower maintenance arrangement than traditional trade facilities if the reporting regime is based on existing management information systems which are reviewed by the bank.
- CF products can provide a cost effective financing solution relative to unsecured corporate debt.
