Our forfaiting solutions

Export forfaiting

Obtain cash ahead of payment date by the importer while managing commercial and credit risk.

Obtain credit terms for your purchases that an exporter may be unable to provide (receive your goods now, but pay for them later). Obtain financing that may work out at a lower cost than the borrowing costs available locally in your country.
