Trade finance and SMEs | Bridging the gaps in provision

The availability of nance is essential for a healthy trading system. Today, up to 80 per cent of global trade is supported by some sort of nancing or credit insurance. However, there are signi cant gaps in provision and therefore many companies cannot access the nancial tools that they need. Without adequate trade nance, opportunities for growth and development are missed; businesses are deprived of the fuel they need to trade and expand.
