The AI powered global marketplace for trade finance assets

Overview: Fineon Exchange is an online marketplace that enables treasury professionals to access a range of working capital finance solutions by matching them with a range of pre-qualified lenders and credit insurers.  Funding options include: open account; letters of credit (LCs); guarantees; forfaiting; receivables securitisation; and trade credit insurance.

A data-driven platform, Fineon Exchange helps these professionals submit key company and transaction details.

The platform also enables funders to securely access a range of assets, as well as offering market intelligence capabilities intended to inform their decision-making.  

In December 2021, Fineon Exchange launched a new Broker Module, aimed at enabling trade finance brokers, advisors and consultants to access to a wide pool of funders, and to more efficiently identify the bankability of deals through its matchmaking capabilities.
