Financing

Comphrehensive Trade Finance

As information becomes readily available real time and global communication networks get more sophisticated, bringing producers and final buyers ever closer, the role of the trader can no longer just be of a market maker. In order for a truly global trading company to add value and grow, they have to have a strong, liquid and flexible capital structure to be able to structure and offer various financing instruments to its counterparts based on their specific needs. Dreymoor is one of the strongest companies in the industry with its solid balance sheet and access to capital through major global financial institutions.

Dreymoor prides itself with its long term partnership approach with all of its trading counterparts, whetherthey are producers, suppliers or buyers. As such, Dreymoor has been one of the few companies that have consistently been structuring various types of financing tools, some of which can be listed as follows:

  • Full or partial prepayments to producers and suppliers in the form of pre-export trade financing.
  • Extended credit and payment terms at competitive interest rates to buyers.
  • Stock financing where buyers pay for and take product in small tranches out of a controlled warehouse where Dreymoor stores the product.
  • Capital investment into fertilizer plants against product offtake and/or raw material supply agreements.
  • Capital injections or long term loans under Joint Venture and profit-sharing agreements.
  • Financing and structuring tolling agreements and complex barter contracts.
