FIMBANK

A Global Force in
Trade Finance

Group Strategy

Specialists in domestic and cross border trade finance globally

Trade has demonstrated continued importance in the functioning of the global economy, even in an unprecedented prolonged low interest rate low growth period just as significantly as in periods of inflationary growth. The functioning of many emerging markets and L/MDCs is trade driven, and the most successful export economies are pioneers in evolving the practice of trade.

FIMBank believes in the pervasive importance and power of trade, whether domestic or cross border, especially in the continued attractiveness of funding and innovating its development. Our belief is that trade financing has strong social development potential, far more than any other banking or financial services.

Set up to provide solutions encompassing all stages of clients' working cycles, integrated and standalone, cross border and domestic, global and local, Fimbank offers its clients bespoke trade financing, factoring, forfaiting, and treasury structures.

While there is no shortage of banking coverage in trade and non-trade financing, a strong trend has been the predominance of this coverage for large corporate and institutional entities at the expense of the small and medium sized companies that often account for the bulk of economies throughout the world. As well, with increased risks from financial market sophistication and more regulation, this coverage has become much more focused on the top end of the corporate spectrum.

FIMBank is ideally placed, in this context, to meet on a consistent and reliable basis the trade-driven growth aspirations of this vast segment of companies, without the distraction of competitive proposition or focus dilution that is found in the coverage of larger well banked companies.

Employing around 400 well trained specialists located in 14 locations globally, FIMBank is at the forefront of global trade.
