Trade Finance

The most fundamental issue in international trade finance is the method of payment agreed between importer and exporter.

The exporter wants to accelerate payment from the importer, and the importer wants to delay and mitigate the supply risk from the exporter. Trade finance bridges the finance gap and settles the conflicting needs of the importer and exporter.

Commodity Trade Finance has grown faster than other syndicated financings due to:

Development of free trade policies
Growing investment and consumption needs in developing countries
Increase in volumes traded
Growing demand for secured assets due to change in risk appetite by banks, regulatory framework and constraints on liquidity

Advantages for

A highly skilled and experienced management team
A market-leading alternative lending source with highly attractive growth potential
Access to commodity trade finance risk-return profiles and education of the asset class
Global diversification
Minimal commodity price exposure
Low default risk, concentration risk and volatility
True liquidity profile where exposures are matched to redemption terms with no long-dated lock-ups
No heavily-weighted individual commodity or transaction risk
Short-term maturities


Kimura is able to fund any type of secured credit transaction within the supply chain of commodities ranging from traditional to bespoke structures on a short and long term basis, of up to 5 years. Examples of these are (but not limited to):

We employ an active investment approach by selecting high quality trade finance transactions across strategic asset classes.

We finance the full range of structures as well as configurations of structured debt. We consider transactions globally, with an initial focus on Europe, CIS, Africa and Asia.

We adopt a stringent client on-boarding process. Due diligence is at the centre of the company’s operational mandate. A thorough review process is conducted on each new counterparty and on every transaction.

We deploy funding across the supply chain spectrum from producer, processor/refiner to distributor/merchant trader. Loans are mostly secured against the underlying commodity with additional recourse to the borrower’s balance sheet.
