Tradewind is the proud recipient of this year’s Metro Award for Service Excellence for its industry-leading performance in the trade finance sector in Hong Kong. The award is given out by Metro Daily, the largest free newspaper publication in Hong Kong, and by Metro Prosperity, a business magazine that is also a part of the Metro News Media group. The company attended the recognition ceremony on September 13 at the Crown Plaza Hotel Hong Kong where Alan Wong, the newly appointed Managing Director for Tradewind’s HK division, and Goobi Mak, VP of Sales for Tradewind HK, stepped on stage to accept the award on behalf of the firm.
Tradewind has worked with various manufacturers and exporters throughout China, where it has a dedicated team in both its Hong Kong and Shanghai offices. The trade finance firm, whose cash flow solutions include non-recourse export factoring, has been pivotal in providing alternative financing for Chinese companies who struggle securing sufficient funding from traditional bank loans. Furthermore, businesses abroad, in places like the US and the UK, benefit from Tradewind’s supply chain finance programs that advance cash to their Chinese vendors.
As an emerging market, China represents a fast-growth economy replete with the talent and technology needed to thrive in the global marketplace. Tradewind’s funding is helping Chinese companies across the electronics, seafood, apparel, automobile, and chemicals sectors, among others, achieve their own growth goals, conduct trade on a greater international level, and reach their global potential.
