Traxpay is TFD Initiative's newest member

February 2, 2023

The Trade Finance Distribution Initiative is delighted to welcome Traxpay as its newest member. With over60 members joining the growing community of trade finance institutions and service providers, the TFD Initiative continues to drive the dialogue around promoting liquidity within this asset class.


“Traxpay helps companies optimize liquidity generation along the value chain by freeing up tied-up cash from their supply chains,” says Markus Wohlgeschaffen, MD Markets and Sales at Traxpay. “Getting access to capital is crucial for our corporate clients which is why we are delighted to join TFD Initiative, and look forward to expand our pool of funding sources through Tradeteq’s securitisation-as-a-service and investors’ community.”

Traxpay’s financing platform offers clients all common supply chain financing instruments, allowing them manage liquidity and improve global financing of goods and services. Traxpay is a fast-growing Internet platform that operates globally from Europe with a multibank approach. With the mission to become the “360° Supply Chain Finance Platform of Choice” for buyers, suppliers and banks, Traxpay offers all stakeholders a steadily growing, intuitively usable and sustainable set of tools for generating and securing liquidity along the entire value chain. In addition, platform users can financially incentivize the sustainability of their supply chains.

“I welcome Traxpay as a new member of TFD Initiative. As the use of Supply Chain Finance continues to attract more corporates, many originators will look for ways to sustain such growth and identify the originate-and-distribute model as a strategic path to increase net interest income. The combination of SCF technology as offered by Traxpay and securitisation-as-a-service supported by Tradeteq will help them achieve such goal,” says André Casterman, Chair Fintech Committee, ITFA.

Tradeteq empowers asset sellers, investors, and credit insurers to connect and transact private debt and real assets seamlessly. Tradeteq uses the power of technology to deliver products that help asset sellers and investors work smarter, and be more efficient. Their platform has a milestone of over 100 Securitisation-as-a-Service transactions, with over USD29billion worth of financial instruments.

TFD Initiative is establishing trade finance as an investable asset class for capital market firms and brings together stakeholders committed to increasing the level of automation and transparency in trade asset and risk distribution with technology-based market practices.


The ITFA Fintech Initiatives aim to address two market-level ambitions: DNI Initiative focuses on digitising trade documents and negotiable instruments incorporate-to-bank relationships, whilst TFD Initiative transforms trade finance as a digitally investable asset class for banks, credit insurers and institutional investors. The advocacy task force (TERA) aims to promote the integration of digital options such as MLETR-based e-originals within national laws.
