We invest in global ventures and large-scale projects that shape the world’s future.
Capital is what keeps a business running. At Royal Trading Alliance, we are financial and banking experts that work with international financial institutions to raise debt capital and fund high growth ventures. While our primary focus is trade finance (that is, the financing of international trade), we also fund large industrial ventures that are backed by sovereign states through official state guarantees.
Our funding process involves due diligence, business development and business plan review, market assessment and complementarity. We look for ventures that fit in our global strategy and that can help channel more revenues for our core activities (trade, technology and import/export specifically). We give high priority to industrial entrepreneurs and venture opportunities that are referred by one of our seven Managing Partners. When a venture project that doesn’t fall within our general guidelines catches our attention, we work with additional institutional partners in Canada and Paris to raise capital. In this instance, such an institutional partner would lead the investment round.
As a very active and high growth trade group, Royal Trading Alliance is also open to doing business with global Venture Capital firms that have an interest in international trade finance, technology and engineering. Our teams of financial experts, technology entrepreneurs, strategists and business development partners are currently working on raising capital for a series of promising American and African ventures in the mobile broadband, real estate, franchising and gold mining industries.
Quick Definition: What Is Trade Finance?
Trade Finance is the financing of international trade. Trade finance includes such activities as lending, issuing letters of credit, factoring, export credit and insurance. Companies involved with trade finance include importers and exporters, banks and financiers, insurers and export credit agencies, as well as other service providers. Trade finance is of vital importance to the global economy, with the World Trade Organization estimating that 80 to 90% of global trade is reliant on this method of financing.
