Trade finance account

The Trade finance account is a cash account specially designed for companies involved in commodities financing.


  • This account is designed to let you manage all your payment transactions. It is also a place you can park any surplus cash over the short term, and you can make use of the credit limit if you need one. Deposited funds can be accessed at any time, and the account can be managed online with BCV-net.
  • Accounts are available in Swiss francs, US dollars, euros and pounds sterling, and there are no transaction fees. The interest rate is determined automatically according to your daily balance – the higher the balance, the higher the interest rate.
