Trade Payable Finance (TPF) is a lending solution that is ideally tailored to companies that purchase products overseas. Instead of financing a moveable level of inventory, TPF focuses on a specific transaction and the financing challenges that can arise, such as enabling a company to finance seasonal peaks of inventory, longer inventory turnover, work-in-process, larger orders that require special financing, or periods when a large inventory build-up is required. Our TPF program can also enable a borrower to take advantage of supplier discounts. It’s adaptable for domestic purchases, and it can be used in conjunction with a letter of credit or an open account purchase.
Supply Chain Finance (SCF) allows the Buyer to extend its payment terms to a Supplier, freeing up working capital for the Buyer to use elsewhere. The Supplier is paid early by presenting invoices to the bank for discount. Suppliers have the ability to discount some or all invoices, providing maximum flexibility. SCF is a win-win solution for both parties, providing working capital, liquidity, and stability in the financial supply chain.
