Trade Finance

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

Our trade finance solutions

We provide a bespoke, flexible offering to our customers – 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.

Our targeted in-house expertise spans 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, we are perfectly placed to provide our customers with a wide 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

What makes trade finance at Leumi UK different?

Leumi UK is a relationship bank first and foremost – forming close, fruitful partnerships with our customers.

We offer a comprehensive corporate banking package and are keen to align our approach with your trading needs. Our in-house treasury services team is on hand to support your working capital facilities including foreign exchange products.

We can fully meet the international demands of our customers and work hand in hand with our specialist Commercial Finance team to support business growth, while our dedicated Commodity Finance team can provide structured commodity trade finance.

We combine functions in one UK-regulated, central London office. This means shorter reporting lines, faster decision making and the timelier execution of trade finance.
