Financing our deals is an increasingly important part of the Steel Trading Business. Throughout the years Steel-Link has been investing in building up steady and solid relations with first class international banks. Our bankers are used to fund working capital requirements, including pre-production finance and export receivable finance. In most cases our deals involve an advance of funds or L/C opening against a certain volume of steel products to be delivered by the steel producer and against the norms, terms and conditions of the contracts. On top of this, export financing can be arranged by Steel-Link within the restrictions set by credit insurance companies and our bankers.
