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.

A recent article heading in the Daily Mail read: If you want to be happy, spend your money making memories. What a perfect heading for this website!

For many people journal-writing can be a powerful and effective way for managing times of chaos, stress and decision-making. Taking time out to express your thoughts, feelings, dreams and life concerns can be highly therapeutic. It can even have a transformative effect on your outlook on life and help you manage life changes more positively and more creatively. It can assist in helping you access your creative unlived resources ultimately to propel you out into life with added vitality, to live out projects which add meaning to your life, or just enha

We are launching a new vehicle in the 3.5 tonne market at the beginning of December. Already we have 30 requests for trials from councils up and down the country. The current government initiatives are additional incentives for our customers to buy

We are fulfilling the role, using solicitors and medical specialists, to reclaim the money where the Primary Care Trusts make it so difficult for family members to claim.
