Commodity Finance Industry Report

Our latest commodity finance report explored the growing influence of blockchain and sustainability, which areas banks are looking to expand into and how commodity deals are financed. Like the Export Finance Industry report, this report also presents heatmaps on how the banks, brokers and law firms compare with one another based on their own clients’ data; the only place in the commodity industry to find this information.

Recognising that commodity market trends are fluid; the 2020 survey will explore the growing influence of alternative financing and how regulation and compliance is impacting the industry.

“The Export Finance Industry report has been an incredibly valuable benchmark for Finnvera. It has helped us to better understand how we work with our buyers, exporters and financiers.”

Executive Vice President

“TXF’s Commodity Finance Industry Report is the unique industry benchmark for banks. It's simple and exhaustive set of criteria allows us to identify our potential areas of progress and improve year after year specifically were customers expect us to. It is simply our guide towards better customer experience.”

Global Head of Commodity Trade Finance

“The Global Commodity Trade Finance Industry Report 2020 provided a forward view of our industry based on the insights of various players who participated in the survey. It helped form new and/or confirm existing strategies on how to approach the upcoming months and years. It was interesting to read how we, as an industry, view upcoming developments such as environmental movements, discontinuation of Libor, projected decrease of financing available by trade finance banks to small players, and consequently the need of small players to find alternative funding such as co-lending to be provided jointly by banks and big players.”

Head of Trade Finance, North America

“For any bank client feedback is the most important feedback, and benchmarking this against competition provides valuable context. At Rabo we use the report annually in order to improve our services to clients. Other banks stepping up, means that we have to improve our game. We should always stay on our toes, in a process of continuous improvement, and the TXF survey helps us in these effort. Getting this feedback is really of great value, especially during the 2020 commodity markets.”
