Trade finance services are simple financing solutions that are organised to reduce the risks associated with trade, which might include hazards associated with customers, countries, and finances. According to their intended use, the goods that pertain to trade finance are split into two distinct categories: financed trade finance and unfunded trade financing. The primary objective of the solutions offered by Unfunded Trade Finance is to provide assistance to the commercial transaction by providing a guarantee for the functioning of the participants in their respective responsibilities. The Funded Trade Finance solution allows a banking firm to offer money and/or credit assistance to the parties involved in a trade transaction.
