Leverage the strength of our specialised lending business for tailored trade finance solutions designed specifically for businesses that produce, trade and purchase commodities including energy, metals and agriculture. Our commodity and structured trade finance team understands that every player along the global supply chain – from production to transformation to marketing – has specific financing requirements. With product specialists located across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, we are able to provide traditional and structured trade financing solutions in both emerging and developed markets.

Global payables

Simplify processes by making paper-based and electronic domestic and international payments quickly and easily. Using our global payables solutions, you will be able to manage expenses and payments more effectively, while also minimising your exposure to payment fraud. Reconciliation is also faster, which can help further streamline payments management.

Global receivables

Improve the way you manage working capital by streamlining and enhancing visibility of your receivables. Our comprehensive range of global receivables solutions is backed by our global presence and local knowledge. As a result, HSBC could help you manage your entire collection cycle with greater speed and efficiency, including the physical collection of funds, data processing and information delivery. That means your team can focus on maximising business opportunities and other important projects that add value to your operations.

Open account

Trade directly with organisations that have a good financial status and that also recognise your business’ good financial standing using HSBC’s open account solutions. You may even be able to take advantage of import and export finance without the need for an underlying documentary credit (letter of credit). If you’re selling on open account terms, our receivables finance products could deliver the financing, or collection services you need. Plus, our supply chain solutions are designed to help you optimise working capital, reduce costs and gain better visibility and control over receivables.

Clearing and foreign currency payments

Optimise your working capital and make transactions in local and foreign currencies more efficiently by using HSBC’s payment and account solutions. With flexible transaction processing, versatile account structures, robust reporting and direct access to a suite of foreign currency services, you can validate transaction details online, receive transaction confirmation immediately and customise payment templates to reduce errors in recurring transactions.

Liquidity, liability and investments

Increase the efficiency of your operations by managing cash on a portfolio basis across more than 50 markets around the world. With HSBC’s global liquidity solutions you will have access to a range of self-funding, deposit and investment techniques. HSBC’s liquidity solutions will be tailored and restricted to be fully compliant with local market regulations that may limit or restrict the availability of some of the services described below. HSBC’s approach combines a high level of consistent service and information, which enables us to configure our services to integrate easily with your organisation’s existing ERP and treasury management systems, as well as your key processes such as payable and receivables.
