Finding the right organization to manage your trade finance products requires diligence. Barrett Trade & Finance Group (BTFG) was founded by Joseph T. Barrett in February 1993 as a partnership and later evolved into a Limited Liability Corporation chartered in Illinois. Today, BTFG is doing business in more than 80 countries, and has the capability to conduct transactions in nearly every country in the world. Our experience and customized approach to lending granted us the ability to become a licensed lender for The Export-Import Bank of the United States of America (Ex-Im Bank).
