The Need for Alternative Credit
Regulatory changes have significantly reshaped financial markets over the past decade. These changes are having a profound impact on global trade and, despite being in the public domain, are still not well understood.
Audentia Global drives economic growth by working with debt providers and investors to finance trade in real assets.
As experts in physical commodities transactions, financing and credit structuring, we created Audentia to bridge the growing annual $1.5 trillion funding gap, providing investors with access to innovative credit strategies.

Working with Audentia
Trade Finance is a compelling asset class, which has – until now – remained relatively untapped by investors. Despite its global impact, most investors remain unaware of the depth of the opportunity.
Led by a highly-experienced team, Audentia’s investment strategy seeks to deliver secure, attractive, risk-adjusted returns, uncorrelated to traditional asset classes with diversification benefits.
Partners choose Audentia Global because we offer a commercial approach that compliments the challenges in the financing of physical commodities.
With our banking partners, we use unique credit structures to make investments across the Commodity sector in regulatory capital relief type transactions.
With our physical trading counterparts, we use purpose-built credit structures to bring down the Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) of our partners’ financing arrangements while making direct investments.
Audentia’s experienced Investment Committee skillfully and comprehensively assesses the full spectrum of risks associated with these types of transactions.
Audentia also has the reserves and capability to de-risk transactions where applicable, including: Physical and Operational Risk Management, Derivative Price Risk Management, Credit Risk Management, Structural and Idiosyncratic Risk Management
