Facilitating international trade finance is at the heart of what we do. We aim to help companies grow both domestically and overseas –allowing them to minimise the risks of trade, and maximise the opportunities

Our trade finance solutions


We provide a bespoke, flexible offering to our clients – from SMEs to large corporates active in the UK. Our team has facilitated international commerce for decades – assisting both importers with purchasing goods or raw materials from overseas, and exporters selling goods to established and emerging markets.


We combine this experience with targeted in-house expertise across a range of trading sectors: from food, clothing, plastic, wood and chemical products, to infrastructure and capital goods, software and satellite technology.


Along with our healthy appetite for lending, this makes us perfectly placed to provide our clients with a comprehensive range of structured trade finance products and international services, including:

  • Letters of credit
  • Guarantees and documentary collections
  • Stock and receivables financing
  • Facilities ranging from £2 million upwards
