Trade and Export Finance
As the global economy continues to improve, and funding becomes more readily available from commercial banks, investments into the emerging markets are growing. These commodity rich regions such as Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America require debt financing in order to trade.
Our market leading team advises both lenders and borrowers ― acting for banks, commodities traders, multilateral institutions, multilateral financial institutions and development banks, export credit agencies (ECAs), and governments. And they offer trade finance capabilities that few competitors can match.
We design documentation and structures to work for you.
