Creating the blueprint for global trade finance distribution
The main innovations in trade in over the past 100 years can be linked to standardisation. Making its debut in the 1960's, the shipping container set a new standard for moving global trade, dramatically increasing trade flows and reducing costs.
Trade finance - made accessible
The container inspired us. We aim to make trade finance a liquid asset class through world-class automation and standardisation, enabling great cost efficiency and real-time processing.
More liquid, so what?
Liquid trade finance benefits everyone involved — corporates can access more affordable trade finance, banks can increase their Net Interest Income, and investment managers gain access to a whole new asset class.
Reduces costs. Enables real-time processing.
Allows for aggregation of trading portfolios.
Minimises time to implement transactions.
Makes granular trade finance portfolios tradable.
Power the future of Trade Finance Distribution
More investment in trade finance means more funding for businesses around the globe.
