C Dem Finance Ltd provides freight, demurrage and time charter financing to the maritime shipping markets, offering predictable, prompt funding through customized solutions.
Access to funds - we offer clients medium to long-term financing based on the value of their total annual freight, demurrage and time charter hire, covering all or part of their receivables at competitive, pre-agreed rates. Payment to the client is made promptly after receipt of a copy of their invoices.
Confidentiality – the funding facility is structured so that our clients’ customers are not aware of them using this service.
Balance sheet efficiency - quickly converts receivables to cash, improving working capital efficiency and credit metrics without impacting on balance sheet leverage.
Commercial considerations – our financing has no bearing on your important commercial relationships. Your customers will not be aware you are using this service and there is no undue pressure to achieve settlements quicker than your average payment times.
Management – you maintain full control over credit management and continue to handle your own receivables with your customers.
Cash flow – clients can obtain financing for their entire existing demurrage book, a potentially large amount of upfront funding, along with a rolling facility covering all or part of their ongoing receivables.
Simplicity – your receivables are financed at 100% value on a non-recourse, 'true-sale' basis, not affecting your arrangements with other financing facilities.
