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.
