Africa Merchant Capital Group
AMC is a U.K.-based boutique merchant banking services business founded in 2012 that established AMC Trade Finance (AMCTF) in 2016 in order to implement its middle market trade finance strategy in Sub-Saharan Africa. AMCTF believes that the global regulatory environment has reduced commercial banks’ appetite to deploy funds into the African trade finance market, and non-banking sectors have insufficient capital resources, leaving the SME sector underfunded. AMCTF aims to increase the availability of trade finance for domestic and regional trade in Sub-Saharan Africa through offering a range of flexible short-term trade finance product solutions. The AMCTF product range includes off-balance sheet stand-alone transactional facilities, back-to-back Letter of Credit facilities, trade-receivable discounting, supplier cash payments and documentary collections. AMCTF’s principals have over 80 years of combined experience in banking, corporate finance, trade finance, and emerging markets. TriLinc’s partnership with AMCTF will provide short-term trade finance to borrowers trading into or out of select countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, responding to the demand of target borrower companies in the region, and helping them achieve sustainable growth through more flexible financing options.
