Structured Trade Finance For Physical Commodities

The post crisis Basil III accord in 2010-11 imposed wholesale regulatory reforms on banks tightening credit globally. This opened a range of new investment opportunities for alternative capital funding in supply chain financing.

The Stantonreed group specializes in linking private capital directly with transactionally secured physical commodity trade. This is accomplished through structuring term facilities designed to mitigate risk and secured by collateral assets of greater value in the underlying commodity transaction. Transaction financing represents an opportunity to diversify investments into the ‘Real Economy’.

These solutions offer a compelling economic opportunity for alternative investors and a new source of trade finance vacated by banks. It’s the very reason banks were involved in trade finance for such a long period, where  goods assignment, receivables and insurance serve as collateral.
