Commodity and resource finance

We raise finance globally under the best terms and conditions available.
Extracting, producing, trading, processing, and distributing commodities are, by their nature, cash-intensive activities. Access to efficient sources of external funding is therefore critical. Yet it is also challenging in an environment where all forms of credit have become more difficult to come by.

At Cofarco, we have in excess of 60 years’ combined experience in arranging finance transactions for corporate clients in the commodities and natural resources space.

As independent finance arranger, we advise on the relevant financing structure for each transaction, do the legwork to contact suitable lenders, and help you execute your transactions under the best terms and conditions available − and in the shortest time span possible.

We work with you through every step of the financing process.


We serve clients along the entire commodity and natural resource supply chain.
