What We Do
Our supplier finance team can help businesses of all sizes, across the supply chain.
Supplier, or supply-chain finance, is growing rapidly as it benefits all parties in the chain, and offers a relatively low risk form of lending for banks and other lenders. With the requirements of suppliers for shorter payment terms conflicting with the desire of buyers to extend payment terms, supplier finance solves this problem and allows liquidity to flow along the supply chain.
Our team is very experienced in supplier finance transactions, offering over 45 years combined experience in the sector. Two of our leading partners, Jon Bew and Andrew Watson, are recognised as experts in this area, and have worked with lenders and borrowers to develop this area of lending and to draft a number of the template documents used by supplier finance lenders.
