Why transform global trade?

Global trade is a key part of economies around the world, and has the potential to reduce poverty and inequality. One of the keys to making global trade accessible, is through trade finance.

But trade finance products are archaic and require significant effort from banks, while corporates often face rigid processes that need to be followed precisely. Making matters worse, global trade finance does not have digital infrastructure to drive process improvements or to remove the requirement for original paper documents that need to be couriered globally.

Leveraging blockchain to drive change

To drive the trade finance revolution, a global interconnected network of banks and corporates is needed. Decentralised technologies, like blockchain, have made network development possible through collaboration of existing market leaders, allowing the industry to work together on a common network.

Enter Contour. The company was launched to develop and deliver this core piece of digital infrastructure to be used by banks and corporates to optimise global trade. Through a collaboration of eight leading trade finance banks, Contour was formed to build this future for trade.

How We Transform Trade Finance
We have started by transforming Letters of Credit – one of the most important instruments in international trade with US$2 trillion issued annually. While it is a key process in global trade finance, it is one of the oldest and most archaic.

Beyond Letters of Credit, our goal is to transform other trade finance products that will bring change across the industry. The journey has already begun as we have started developing new products like Standby LCs and Guarantees.

Contour is the world’s trusted network for trade.
Contour's Technology
Our ability to optimise and transform the industry comes not only from our governance and operating model but also our unique use of technology. Using R3’s Corda blockchain software, our engineers create complex distributed workflows that empower our users to meet their complex regulatory and data privacy demands.

Our internal processes and engineering practices are continually improving at rapid pace because of our open culture and focus on automation, especially with regards to QA – all engineers are empowered to add value, not work on mundane, repetitive tasks. We also offer a hosted version of our platform using the latest orchestration and cloud technologies to run thousands of nodes with no manual intervention. Our clients love it.
