The Trade Finance Distribution Initiative is delighted to introduce supply chain finance provider Teybridge Capital as the 70th member of the initiative.

The TFD Initiative has recently seen a boost of new membership such as Mercore, Peridot, EBRD and Kountable amongst others, joining the consortium of global members working to establish trade finance as an investable asset class for capital market firms.

“The TFD initiative is a fantastic community of industry leaders dedicated to making Trade Finance more accessible, not only to the institutional capital market, but to all stakeholders involved. We are looking forward to adding value to this initiative by working alongside some of our existing and new partners and unlocking the power of collaboration to forge a pathway toward achieving the TFDI’s objective”, says Dylan Martin, CEO – Teybridge Europe.  

The TFD Initiative continues to expand its membership of elite trade finance businesses and will further its efforts of promoting the tech-backed originate-and-distribute model at its inaugural flagship Trade Finance Investor Day scheduled for mid-October this year in the UK.

“We’re indeed delighted to welcome Teybridge into the community. Non-bank originators such as Teybridge Capital represent attractive new options for mid-caps, their SME suppliers, and also for institutional investors.”, says André Casterman, Chief Executive, TFD Initiative. “Through TFD Initiative, we are building the largest trade distribution community and delivering the most comprehensive technology stack for trade originators of any size to increase balance sheet velocity and partner with a much larger pool of liquidity providers. Partnering with TFD Initiative contributes to closing the trade finance gap.”
