Invest in Trade Finance and Diversify Your Portfolio
Institutional investors can now gain unprecedented access to the trade finance asset class with Triterras’ trade funding opportunities.
global trade funding OPPORTUNITIES
Trade constitutes the backbone of every economy.
80 ~ 90% of global trade requires financing
An annual USD 18 trillion of global trades are mostly financed by banks today.
90% of SMEs lack access to affordable trade finance
A widening trade finance funding gap of USD 1.7 trillion, created by stringent banking regulations such as Basel III, along with pressures of rising costs.
USD 10 ~ 15 billion of AUM
Collectively, trade finance specialist funds have just USD 10 to 15 billion AUM in this asset class.
There is thus, a compelling opportunity for flexible institutional capital to step into the lending gap.
An attractive asset class opportunity
Trade Finance yields exceed comparable private and public credits with similar risk.
Maturity is generally less than one year, but funding structures can be created to accommodate longer-dated capital.
Low Default Rates
Default and loss rates are historically low, in comparison to senior secured corporate debts and similar credits.
Strong Structural Protections
Trade Finance is often secured by corporate accounts receivables, accounts payables, and/or inventory.
Trade Finance renders reliable, steady cash flows, and has limited correlation to other asset classes.
