Investing in Trade Finance Assets

Recently Raistone CEO Dave Skirzenski hosted a panel of industry experts hosted by the CFA Society of New York to discuss how Trade Finance has grown as an investment asset class. The size of the trade finance market in the United States is over 1.5 times the size of the consumer credit market, making it a fascinating and growing market to understand. 

Trade Finance (which includes Supply Chain Finance and Accounts Receivable Finance) is a powerful tool to help businesses gain fast, easy access to working capital. On the investment side, investors remain attracted to the asset class due to the extremely low loss rates, short-term duration, and strong performance through multiple financial downturns.  

Key topics in the video discussion include: 

  • What kinds of opportunities exist in trade finance for investors
  • Why investors should consider investing in the trade finance asset class and where such strategies may fit into an optimal investors’ portfolio
  • Opportunities for investors across industry verticals, asset size, and investment length

If you want to learn more about trade finance as an investor, or as a savvy business owner, this panel discussion is absolutely worth your time. You can watch it here.
