Creating the right trade finance agreement for you

Amongst other things, your trade finance agreement will manage the capital required for a smooth flow of trade in your business. Your agreement will also specify how the following can be used for your business trade:

  • investments
  • cash
  • credit
  • any other assets

A comprehensive and effective trade finance agreement can go a long way to protecting your most central business interests; whether this involves enforcement or protection. Trade finance has a huge remit and identifying which aspects are relevant to your business is something that your chosen lawyer will do for you.

In particular, your trade finance agreement can provide:

  • a documentary letter of credit which ensures a seller will be paid according to stipulations in the contract for sale of goods
  • the issue of a standby letter of credit or a guarantee or bond to protect against non-performance
