Trade & Invoice Finance Directors, Maurice Ezekiel and Matthew Speed

Meet The Experts In Trade Finance, Maurice Ezekiel and Matthew Speed.

Maurice is Managing Director and Matt is Sales Director of Woodsford Trade Finance. Between them, they have 40 years of combined experience and have helped many hundreds of UK SMEs access the right growth finance.

Blending deep sector knowledge with Woodsford innovation, there really is no better team to look after your trade finance requirements.

Our highly experienced duo will work with you directly to identify all available options and structure a trade finance package to allow your business to grow and flourish.

How does it work?

Your Purchase (or Trade) finance line takes care of your supplier payments, giving you the flexibility to negotiate early payment discounts and improve supplier relationships.

When your products are delivered and invoiced, your Invoice finance facility seamlessly takes over, paying off your purchase facility, reducing your finance rate and immediately releasing funds in the purchase facility for your next order.

Our unique BridgeIT online solution allows you to use either of these facilities independently, or link them together, to automatically clear supplier payments against corresponding sales invoices.

Introducing BridgeIT™

BridgeIT is our unique, easy to use online portal for you to see and manage your facility - especially powerful when you link your Trade and your Invoice Finance solutions, as the system can automatically clear supplier payments against corresponding sales invoices.
