Securitization could close the trade finance gap

Trade finance is gaining momentum as a securitized asset class – the resultant increased liquidity may offer corporates access to trade finance much more easily and quickly, especially as digital solutions streamline the process. Will SMEs, which have traditionally found it harder to access the market, be able to reap the benefits as well?


Until recently, trade finance has been more or less off-limits for institutional investors. The market was almost exclusively the business of bankers able to decode difficult trade finance deals.

But low and even negative yields in traditional investments coupled together with new digital platforms that encourage standardization across the trade finance industry have shifted opinion around the asset class.
