The security in trade finance is that the deal is in the control of the bank, and not at the whim of suppliers or customers: - The bank pays the supplier only when the supplierÆs shippers have completed the standard shipping documents proving the correct goods have been loaded. Payment is made once the deposit funds are cleared - The freight is fully ensured during the journey. - Goods are unloaded, inspected and released to the end customer only on payment to the bank - The bank then pays the company, less their own trade finance fees. In this way your deposit is protected, and the bank could pay your interest directly to you at the end of the 21-day cycle.

The OpalTec business strategy is always to look beyond individual economic cycles and focus on capturing long-term growth trends, even during economic downturns as severe as that of the past two years. We are constantly looking to enliven old entrenched processes with new workable ideas. Naturally, we also have the ability to make short-term adjustments that minimise the impact of the recession and allow us to capitalise on any recovery as it takes hold. That is why in late 2007, as markets were coming off their peaks, we took the decision to begin making difficult but necessary cuts in overheads and staff levels. As a result of our forward thinking OpalTec has weathered this most recent market downturn better than most companies.
