Global trade volumes have increased significantly in the last two decades as the worldwide trade has become increasingly globalized, reaching appr. 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. DF Group's target markets therefore offer the company great potential for further business development.
DF Group opens the door to the Near and Middle East
Within the emerging markets, the focus of 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 a 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, DF Group is ideally positioned in this region. The company's broad range of services, including forfaiting and the collection of receivables, makes cross-border trade possible in the first place. This applies in particular to trading transactions with Iran. In its activities in Iran, DF Group concentrates on the food and pharmaceuticals sectors (including medicine and medical devices). Based on a compliance system that meets the highest international standards, DF Group is in a position to carry out its trading transactions in compliance with all relevant sanction regulations.
