Import & Export With Confidence

Forfaiting is the process by which trade receivables can be discounted on a without recourse basis, typically the receivables will be in the form of a Letter of Credit, Bill of Exchange, Promissory Note, or Payment Guarantee with a tenure of say a few months up to 7 years.

Funding Trade

Forfaiting allows an exporter to consider granting credit terms where otherwise it would have unduly tied up cash-flow necessary for the day to day operational needs of the business. The advantages of forfaiting are numerous and include:

  • Cash flow unaffected by making forfaiting  related export sales
  • Eliminated risk of late payment or default by the buyer
  • Total protection against adverse currency movement
  • Eliminate Economic and Political Risk factors
