Is it right for you?

Structured Trade and Commodity Finance (STCF) provide short-term (1 year and less), self-liquidating trade finance solutions. These solutions are particularly suited to local, regional and global commodity traders, in- and exporters and manufacturers.

Solutions are normally secured by underlying assets (commodities and other) and comfort is taken in the self-liquidating nature of the solution coupled with the marketability of the underlying asset and the trade finance instrument in use.

Our interest lies in select energy, metals, minerals and agricultural commodities.
