Trade Finance Facilitation Program

ADB's Trade Finance Program (TFP) fills market gaps in trade finance by providing guarantees and loans through over 200 partner banks in support of trade. The Program is comprised of the following products : (i) Credit Guarantee (CG) ADB guarantees up to 100% risk protection against nonpayment by approved participating banks, in support of trade transactions, responding within 24 hours of receiving a request. Through this support, the CG product establishes new partnerships between banks and companies, therefore increasing trade and access to challenging markets. (ii) Risk Participation Agreement (RPA) For banks with large and consistent trade finance volumes, ADB provides a maximum 50% risk protection against nonpayment of a financial obligation issued by a bank in support of a trade transaction. Unlike the CG product, the Risk Participation Agreement (RPA) provides risk protection on a portfolio basis, rather than on a transaction-by-transaction basis. The RPA provides partners with an innovative and highly efficient vehicle to manage portfolios of trade assets, providing banks with the capacity to support more companies in challenging markets. (iii) Revolving Credit Facility (RCF) ADB provides loans to eligible bank for on-lending to importers and exporters to finance trade-related transactions. This product is most frequently used for pre-export finanicng. For more information, please visit the TFP website at Read More
