Through RYTE, its newly launched financing platform, processes are streamlined and standardised allowing businesses to easily submit documents, pulling the required digital data or documents through secured repositories like the Networked Trade Platform (“NTP”) or from digital trade facilitation platforms operated by GUUD such as trade declaration services.

GUUD Finance, the financing arm of the GUUD Group, shares the Group’s vision to Trade for Good, and to enable all businesses, especially micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), to become players in global trade by reducing red tape, eliminating middlemen and providing greater access to financial services.

RYTE provides business users with varied options for financing revolving around their trade flow; from supply chain financing to documentary trade, all within a single platform. Whether they are looking to apply for import GST financing, letter of credit issuance or shipment financing, they can access the RYTE platform to link up with an appropriate service provider that will assist them with their requirements.

As a digital trade financing platform, RYTE uses the power of data to deliver a better experience for users, making their financing journey fast, simple and secure. With a promise of fast turnaround times on all enquiries, real-time status updates and quick, secure auto-population of form fields and retrieval of digital documents through its secure, trusted network, RYTE helps users navigate their work flows digitally and simply, saving them time, cost and unnecessary errors.

Commenting on the launch, Desmond Loh, CEO, GUUD Finance said: “The global trade finance gap is growing and estimated at around USD 1.5 trillion as of 2019 according to a survey by ADB, and this gap continues to grow. With the launch of RYTE, GUUD Finance hopes to be able to provide as many businesses as we can with options for financing that will help ease their cashflow strain, increase their working capital and allow them to expand their businesses easily.”

Mr Lim Cheng Khai, Executive Director at MAS, said, “The RYTE trade financing platform harnesses digitalisation to deliver a more inclusive and efficient experience for trade finance solutions. It is a welcome addition to Singapore’s trade financing ecosystem and reinforces Singapore’s proposition as a smart financing centre.
