Structured trade finance
Westpac offers specialised trade solutions where the traditional product and service offerings are unable to meet your customers’ specific risk and financial objectives.
Transactions are tailored individually using a broad range of risk mitigation and credit enhancement instruments and products to create value to your company and your customers.
These comprehensive solutions are generally preferred by both the soft and hard commodity producers and traders to replace the more accepted funding and risk management solutions.
Available solutions that Westpac would be pleased to explore further with your company are:
A revolving finance program which allows your customers to accelerate cash from their debtors and reduce risks for both their domestic and export sales
Borrowing Base Financing covering both Inventory and Receivables
A revolving finance program aligned to the working capital assets of a company including acceptable inventory and eligible receivables
Trade Payable Finance
Allows your customers to enhance their supplier relationships through offering early settlement of invoices and thus may benefit by improving profitability through lowering their costs
Specialised Inventory Finance
Innovative solutions specifically crafted to offer a broad range of solutions for the financing of commodity inventories across the supply chain from purchase through tolling to the collection of payments from your buyers.
