By means of Trade finance, commodities reach the consumers all over the world.

World population is growing at an unprecedented rate. The demands of consumers worldwide are increasing at a similar rate, but production possibilities vary by country and continent. The traditional relationships between producer and consumer countries are changing. Resources must be handled smartly to ensure the earth can continue to meet growing consumer needs and global prosperity continues to increase. This is where commodity traders step in with the help of Rabobank; because without global financing, there is no trade.

International commodity traders face more challenges than simply keeping up with the growing volumes of commodities. The international commodity trade is becoming more and more dynamic and traders frequently need to make quick decisions that can have an enormous impact on their balance sheets.

This is why you need a bank you can trust - a financial partner that is an expert in this specialised area. When it comes to agribusiness, metals and energy, Rabobank Trade and Commodity Finance is a leader in the field.

We have offices worldwide and build close and lasting personal relationships with our clients in every stage of the commodity value chain. Clients trust us because we have experts spanning the globe, specialists in both trade and commodities.

Our financial experts offer a range of products to meet your needs at every stage of the trade flow. We offer specialised financing, adapted to the global trade in real products.

Trade Finance facilitates its (exporting) clients’ trade transactions involving bank and/or country risks, largely consisting of confirmation and discounting of export Letters of Credit. Through our Structured Inventory Products, we provide ownership-based financing solutions, as an alternative to regular financing, to the bank’s clients and provide you with liquidity and/or a stock management tool.

We know our clients. We know the field. We know banking.

Trade and Commodity Finance serves Rabobank’s largest international clients. Clients that trade tangible products. We facilitate the trade flow that is an essential part of the global value chain; a trade flow of vital resources necessary to support prosperity in a changing world.
