The Bulgaria division of Tradewind Finance is pleased to announce it has recently joined the BCCI Investment Council, a specialized body of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI). As a member, Tradewind joins other financial institutions, banks, investors, and trade organizations in supporting the economic sector of Bulgaria through various financial and investment products.
The Investment Council also serves as a platform to develop partnerships aimed to improve business, investment efforts, and trading pursuits. Among other things, promoting access to working capital through custom export finance, a solution that Tradewind specializes in, will be part of the firm’s role as a Council member.
Gaining membership to the Council came after a selection process which entailed meeting specific criteria. Tradewind’s application was successfully approved in this regard.
The initiation of Tradewind into the Investment Council was officially marked on January 30, 2023 at Tradewind’s office in Sofia. It was attended by Mr. Vladimir Tomov, Chairman of the Investment Council; Mr. Rafi Shirinyan, Regional Credit and CEO for Tradewind’s Bulgarian division; and Mrs. Desislava Yordanova, Sales Manager for Tradewind Bulgaria. The talks continued on February 7, 2023 at a meeting hosted by the President of the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Tsvetan Simeonov.
To date, Tradewind and the Investment Council have discussed opportunities to work together to advance their shared goals, as well as potential areas for collaboration, including joint activities and initiatives.
The first joint initiative between Tradewind and the Council took place on February 28, 2023 in the form of a hybrid webinar on “Finance products to facilitate export”. The event, organized by the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Investment Council with the support of Tradewind, educated export-oriented companies from a variety of sectors on the financing and export support opportunities that are available to them.
During the webinar together, with other participating members, the team from Tradewind detailed their company’s activities and tailor-made financial solutions, with an emphasis on export factoring and its benefits, such as improved liquidity, reduced trade risk, and increased competitiveness for exporters.
