Sometimes referred to as “secured income” or “alternative credit”, Trade Finance, is a generic term that covers the financing of international trade and commerce. This includes loans that finance the cross-border export of goods and services. Trade Finance differs from other types of lending, as transactions must have an identifiable source of repayment – cash payments when goods have been delivered or title to the underlying goods when they have not yet been delivered.

Trade Finance investing can vary greatly, ranging from Investment Grade to extremely speculative. As an investment class, it has gained traction in recent years from institutional investors seeking to improve yields versus traditional credit investments without taking on additional duration risk or impeding liquidity.

During this event, we will hear from a panel of industry experts on how Trade Finance has evolved as an investment class and where such strategies may fit into an investors’ portfolio.
