The volume of global trade has increased significantly over the past two decades as globalisation of world trade has progressed, reaching around USD 15.9 trillion in 2016. In this context, the emerging markets are becoming increasingly important. Between 2005 and 2016, their share of global trade rose from 33% to 41%. This development is expected to continue in the future. The DF Group's target markets therefore offer the company great potential for further business development.
DF group as door opener to the Near and Middle East
Within the emerging markets, the focus of the DF Group is on the countries of the Near and Middle East, for which the IMF expects high economic growth in the coming years. Experts see financing as the key to trade with these markets, and there is brisk demand for foreign trade financing and hedging by international exporters. With its many years of experience and contacts, its partnerships and the necessary financing know-how, the DF Group is ideally positioned in this region. The company's broad range of services, including forfaiting and debt collection, makes cross-border trade possible in many cases. This applies in particular to trading transactions with Iran. The DF Group concentrates its activities in Iran on the areas of food and pharmaceuticals. Supported by a compliance system that meets the highest international standards, the DF Group is in a position to carry out trading transactions in compliance with all relevant sanction regulations.
