The Barak Structured Trade Finance Fund provides businesses, trades and entrepreneurs with bespoke structured finance and working capital solutions to assist them in growing their business.

The Barak Structured Trade Finance Fund provides financial products to businesses, trades and entrepreneurs across the African Continent.  We believe that for Africa to continue to grow at the current pace, all entities with good business models should be provided with a financial solution that is right for them, irrespective of the size of the business.

The products offered focus on inventory and working capital cycles, which we advocate as the primary pillars for growth.

However we do not use a one dimensional view when engaging with our clients, instead we review all facets of a business – its track record, financials and management experience when evaluating each deal.
