From Tradewind’s beginnings, I have been committed to the vision of offering our customers tailor-made trade finance solutions that provide reliable financial support and enable them to plan their long-term business goals.
Our company opened its doors in 2000. For more than 20 years, we’ve been providing financing solutions to businesses of all sizes across the globe. We now operate more than 20 offices in 14 countries.
“Making financing exciting for our clients”
After 24 years in banking and trade finance, I still enjoy the excitement a new customer feels when we start structuring a solution.
15+ of those years have been at Tradewind, and I love the relationships I’ve built with customers and fellow employees. I am proud of the solution we can offer in various parts of the world.
Our leadership team is comprised of experts in international trade, finance, technology, law, operations, and more. Combining these skills, we deliver comprehensive services for our clients, from financing to local market insights.
My experience at Procter & Gamble and Levi’s has given me first-hand insights on how big brands and their suppliers work, their challenges and what they need to do business better. I use these experiences to help create trade finance solutions that address real issues, from the factory floor up, so that companies can focus on their core business and achieve growth.
A unique combination of
Our services combine global scale and local market insights. We provide on-the-ground support to our clients from our network of offices.

Constantly adapting to
Tradewind stays up-to-date with the latest technologies. We aim to always optimize our company’s operations and those of the clients we serve.

My experience as a software developer in various business fields is the tool I use to accomplish our visions at Tradewind.

Our lending mechanisms
At Tradewind, we maximize liquidity for our clients, while minimizing trade risk for them. Our team routinely conducts due diligence and monitors the creditworthiness of buyers.
My journey with Tradewind started in 2005. I had the chance to work as financial analyst and business development manager. My experience in risk management and business development in cross-border receivables financing helps me better understand the complexity of our global business.
Providing our customers with fast and seamless services is at the core of what we do. We use established and optimized processes to make sure our clients’ needs are met without delay.
My day-to-day duties require me to think strategically about liquidity and getting it into the hands of our clients. I use my understanding of financing to support the businesses we work with in the best way possible.
We invest in solutions
We believe in solving each client’s cash flow challenges with a solution customized for them, and only them. At Tradewind, we stay away from a one-size-fits-all approach.
It’s not about improved numbers only – it’s about making a difference. I approach customers with patience and an open mind and generate products based on their needs. It fulfills me to learn about new industries and deepen my existing experience in international commodity trade.
The future depends on what you do today. I wake up every morning to support our clients at Tradewind achieve their financial goals. In the Commercial department, we build relationships with customers by listening to their needs, first and foremost, and creating a solution that will solve their challenges in response.
My experience in the financial sector has familiarized me with different industries and financing solutions. At Tradewind, I use this experience to find out the needs of our clients and provide them with tailored support. I am fascinated by all the industries I continue to learn about in my day-to-day as part of the trade finance world.
Exporters have faced a lot of adverse changes in the last few years such as COVID19, the shipping crisis, political turbulence, high inflation, etc. With our expertise in factoring, we have developed measures to help our clients mitigate their risks arising from those changes so that they can proceed with their business activities safely and peacefully. For myself, I cope with changes by continuously changing, evolving and adapting.
