Commodity Trade Finance

FIMBank provides transactional and structured short-term financing to trading companies. You can benefit from a wealth of experience by specialist personnel in handling transactions dealing with a number of basic soft and hard commodities, coupled with a good understanding of emerging markets. We offer flexible and creative solutions, ranging from day-to-day commodity trading to the more complex structured transactions.

Our customer benefits from a one-stop shop to facilitate their transactions. The basic premise of a commodity transaction is to arrange a closed-end, self-liquidating commercial transaction that may include:

  • Pre-shipment or pre-export finance
  • Processing facilities
  • Consolidation finance
  • FCR financing 

FIMBank supports these facilities in all major currencies, combined with the necessary currency hedging instruments. Bridging finance is normally available on a floating interest rate base. Margins on the level of finance available apply, depending on the goods traded, and the associated market risk for the product.
