Trade and Export

Trading internationally

Trading with business partners overseas can be challenging but can also present many exciting opportunities. With suppliers and customers around the globe the gap between paying your suppliers and being paid by your customers can become stretched - and it's in these gaps that cash flow issues can arise. As a leading UK finance provider, we can deliver the funding to get you trading internationally with confidence.

Trade Finance allows you to pay for goods ordered from overseas suppliers using a flexible finance facility via Letters of Credit, deposits or full upfront payment.

Export Finance helps businesses that sell overseas by releasing the value of outstanding invoices while we support you by collecting customer payments.

We also offer a fully integrated Foreign Exchange service if you want to protect against, or take advantage of, currency fluctuations.
