Bidding to “democratise the cross-border trade finance marketplace through use of technology", Interlinkages founder Anindita Ghosh compares it to eBay or Uber, since it “makes the market for trade flows but does not take the credit risk at any stage”.
She tells GTR that Interlinkages is the first online platform in the world with a product suite to include tools such as the letter of credit, standby letter of credit and irrevocable undertaking.
FIs can put idle capital to work and find lending opportunities outside of their customary geographical limits. Meanwhile companies unused to international lending markets – perhaps lacking contacts to borrow cross-border – can dip their toes in such waters online.
