- April 2016 the founding team with a diversified background spanning commodity trading, risk management, shipping, technology and law came together to research into and develop a solution for the growing trade finance gap faced by global SME firms operating as producers/traders/end users in the bulk commodity import/export space.
- 2016 to 2018 the founders built a solution to the SME Trade Finance ecosystem problem. The solution was to enable the Commodity transaction for an SME firm without giving credit or lending.
- This unique solution became the CEMP – NR Capital Trade Flow Fund SP which takes a principal position and direct ownership of the commodities during shipment or during a pre-agreed storage period.
- The Fund launched in April 2018 after two years of research and development work on the business model, a digitised technology platform to allow the Fund strategy to be scalable and the legal framework master agreements to connect everything together.
