As a successful global trading company, you already have deep banking relationships. What you may miss is a fully flexible global trade finance facility, ready to fund the deals that need to be done fast or that don’t meet your bank's strict criteria.


Fund growth

“Tricky to fund” shipments can often tie up capital – with a Woodsford Tradebridge facility you can release that cash back into your business to fund growth.

Be a market leader

Disrupt the status quo with working capital flexibility that supports innovation. Become more agile and responsive to opportunities in your market.

Produce more

Increase production capacity or bring on new suppliers to fulfil your international order book, however long your cash conversion cycle.

We support global trade finance requirements


We make strong businesses nimble

Our supply chain finance programmes are secured on your strong balance sheet. That means you can deploy funding fast to secure opportunities.


We invest in your business

Global trade is in our DNA. Our senior team all grew up in global companies - in the commodities, defence and engineering sectors. So when it comes to global trade, we understand your issues.


You can bank on us

With a range of funding sources plus our own private capital, we offer unparalleled flexibility to meet the needs of international businesses.

Add flexibility to your working capital facilities

We work across all key trading sectors

From textiles to oil, food to technology and industrial engineering, we support every industry sector, with particular experience in three sectors that benefit most from working capital flexibility:

  • Agricultural commodities
  • Petroleum and petrochemicals
  • Metals and metal processing

We understand that your business is complex and won’t always fit your bank's rule book.

  • There are reputable suppliers in almost every country. We will take time to assess your vital supply chain partners on a case by case basis.
  • Your key suppliers will not necessarily be located next to an international port, making it difficult to secure funding when required. We can structure a solution to help.
  • The best opportunities don’t always come as neatly packaged as your bank would like. Once in place, we can execute transactions in the time frame you need.

In the last five years, we have funded business growth with over £500 million in supply chain finance facilities

  • Jurisdiction – we fund clients or subsidiaries based in the UK, EEA. Switzerland, Dubai, Singapore and Australia.
  • Initial facility size - $3-10m
  • Suppliers – compliant with UK/EU sanctions and AML obligations
  • Currencies – USD, EUR, AUD, GBP
  • Security requirements – typically none, if you meet our lending criteria
  • Credit insurance – cover under our credit insurance lines is generally required
