Switzerland and greater Geneva area, the Global hub for Commodity Trade Finance

The greater Geneva area (including Canton of Vaud) has become a pivotal location for commodities since the middle ages due to its location. We estimate 400 companies to be present in this part of Switzerland. It includes commodities merchants, shipping and logistic companies, insurance, brokers and commercial banks.

How it works

Traders in Geneva manage the delivery of a wide array of XXX and semi transformed commodities across the globe without their transiting through Switzerland. They raise financing and manage the risks when coordinating shipments.
