SERVICES

SUPPLY CHAIN FINANCE

In addition to factoring your export accounts receivable, Tradewind can finance your full supply chain. We use financing and risk mitigation techniques to optimize the management of working capital and liquidity in the supply chain. We provide receivables financing and funding to foreign suppliers based on your creditworthiness and financial strength. We also support off-balance sheet inventory arrangements.  

Our global financing programs can support facilities based on payables, receivables, and inventory.

Using factoring, purchase order funding, inventory lending, letters of credit, structured guarantees, and other structured trade finance techniques, our supply chain finance programs help align the needs of both buyers and sellers and minimize risk across the supply chain.

We can finance all the periods above using

Import financing

In combination with discounting your receivables, Tradewind can help you import/purchase additional pre-sold product from your vendors, via letter of credit or documentary sales terms. These arrangements are a particularly good fit for very high-growth or seasonal businesses.

Inventory financing

For clients dealing in goods that have a large and “liquid” market and holding goods in reputable third party warehouses, Tradewind can arrange financing against the standing inventory. This inventory financing is typically arranged with conditions on the advance rate and tenor of funding, and must include sound backup liquidation planning.

Vendor financing

For firms with solid financials and $500+ million in annual revenues, Tradewind can arrange vendor finance programs (also known as “reverse factoring” or “payables financing”). Often structured with “off-balance sheet” treatment for our client, these arrangements can be a true “win-win”—offering our client’s vendors greater liquidity at a lower interest cost while allowing our client longer payment terms.

Benefits

Our programs allow you to optimize your working capital by providing solutions to you and your upstream and downstream partners. For instance, you can extend your payment terms and avoid discrepancies and fees associated with letters of credit and your suppliers benefit from an on-demand pool of liquidity, lower borrowing costs, faster funding, and a higher advance rate.
