An innovative trading platform to register ownership of commodities
Tradeflow is a flexible and customised online platform to register possession and ownership of commodities stored in UAE-based facilities.
Established in 2004, Tradeflow has evolved from a warehouse receipt system to serving as the regulator of commodity trade in the UAE as part of the Dubai government. The unique platform was launched to address a gap in the regional trade finance market and has witnessed a year-on-year increase of transactions.
Tradeflow now provides a range of online services specifically designed to facilitate collateral financing, jewellery financing and provide Islamic Finance solutions.
The success of Tradeflow is largely due to DMCC’s ability to work alongside the global commodities industry, form partnerships and create trade enabling trade enabling eco-systems.
Consistent high performance is driving the expansion of Tradeflow and has resulted in the development of innovative trading platforms that cater specifically for the trade finance demands of emerging markets such as China and India.
There are several advantages to DMCC Tradeflow
Our fully electronic web-based trading platform offers Murabaha transactions in physical commodities and the ability to undertake multi-commodity and multi-currency trades from all around the world, supported by UAE-based assets that comply with Sharia compliance criteria.
Launched in 2016, Salam enables forward-financing of transactions, where payment is made in advance for goods to be delivered at a future date. The financial institution pays in full for buying a specific quantity of commodities, at an agreed level of quality, which the seller will supply on a pre-agreed date.
DMCC Tradeflow provides a range of risk management solutions across the commodity inventory financing value chain. These are backed by standardised and enforceable legal conditions designed to address the specific needs and requirements of the industry.
