What is trade finance?

When a business acquires goods, they are often required to pay for the goods in advance of them being shipped or transported.

Trade finance enables a simple payment solution for these goods whilst also eliminating the risks involved in local and international trade transactions, such as non-payment of goods, or goods not being as was ordered.

What our customers say

We could not have been happier. Banks as usual were a nightmare - they took over six weeks to eventually refuse for vague reasons unexplained. White Oak UK were professional, helpful, friendly, and best of all, fast.
