Singapore-based Triterras, a fintech focussed on commodity trading and trade finance, has said that its Kratos marketplace facilitated approximately $5bn of total trade and trade finance volume in the six months ended August 31, 2020.
This represents an additional $2.1bn of volume from the $2.9bn of total transaction volume in the first four months of its fiscal year 2020.
Kratos is one of the world’s largest commodity trading and trade finance platforms that connects and enables commodity traders to trade and source capital from lenders directly online. Triterras Fintech monetizes the Kratos platform by charging fees to its users on both trade and trade finance volumes.
“We are on track to meet or exceed our initial fiscal year 2020 projections that were released in July 2020,” said Triterras Fintech Chairman and CEO Srinivas Koneru. “We enter the second half of the fiscal year with solid operating momentum, giving us confidence in our fiscal year 2021 projections.”
Koneru added: “We are encouraged by the trajectory of both our respective trade and trade finance volumes and fees, as traders and lenders continue to realize significant business benefits from our Kratos platform. The small and medium sized enterprise (SME) trade and trade finance market is very large and our platform is designed to address the $1.5 trillion estimated annual trade finance shortfall.”
