BCV: the only trading bank in Vaud Canton

BCV has been active in financing international commodities transactions – metals, agricultural products and petroleum derivatives – for over 20 years. We are a major competitor in this area thanks to our solidity, our decentralized decision-making, and the vast experience of our trade-finance staff.

Work in the front office and in support

Positions in trade finance (e.g., relationship manager, analyst and documentary credit advisor) involve both front-office activities and support roles. Working in this field requires a thorough knowledge of the trade-finance process, close attention to risk and language skills.

A team of experts working closely together

One of the strengths of BCV’s Trade Finance department is having our entire team of experts working together at our headquarters in Lausanne. This facilitates teamwork among the various sectors (e.g., the front office, documentary credit and credit analysis). It also improves response times: our decision-making process is one of the fastest among trade-finance players.

Active worldwide

As part of our team, you may be called on to provide personalized customer service, prepare documentary credits or help manage our relationship with other financial institutions. You may be involved in delivering advisory services to trading companies operating in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, South America and all around the Mediterranean.

Fast and effective service

Our center of expertise in Lausanne is staffed by some 80 people. Their knowledge and experience allow them to quickly process trade-finance requests, ensuring that BCV clients receive service of the highest caliber.
