About Commodities
Bringing the physical and financial markets together

UBS Commodity Trade Finance involves structured short term lending for the purpose of financing physical commodities such as oil, gas, chemicals, metals, agricultural produce or other exchange traded commodities in sufficient liquid markets. In such transactions, the bank's lending is secured through the underlying commodities and the respective loan is normally repaid from the commodity's sale proceeds. Thus, the lender designs or structures the transaction to be self liquidating.
