Working closely with importers and Chinese suppliers, we pay sellers in advance while delivering unsecured extended payment terms for creditworthy importers.

We will continue to recruit experienced finance industry professionals to strengthen our business development teams in Europe as well as continuing to build on our strong presence in China.”

Taylor commented “China's economy is enjoying unprecedented growth and Delta Trade Finance is primed to help strengthen trading relationships between importers and their Chinese suppliers. With our experienced team in the West and in the main trading regions of China, we are well placed to support the trade flows emanating from China to the main Western markets”.
